Trolls Lying About Black People Assaulting ‘Black Panther’ Movie-Goers


Black Panther” trolls have shared images of actual women who have been assaulted and wrote that the incidents happened at “Black Panther movies at the hands of young black people — which have been proved to be false.



In one image, a user shared an actual photo of former White House staffer Rob Porter’s ex-wife sporting a black eye with the caption:

Went to the #BlackPanther premier tonight and my wife was assaulted. Three black women approached us and one said ‘This movie ain’t for you white b****’ and then attacked her. Security escorted us to the parking lot and we left. We just wanted to see a movie.


Another graphic image shows a bloodied teen with the caption:

“i went to see #BlackPanther with my gf and a black teenager shouted ‘u at the wrong theater’ and smashed a bottle on her face.”

The image is actually of a 19-year-old from Sweden, who was attacked by a man at a nightclub in Malmö after refusing his advances.

On Saturday, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn tweeted about the fake posts, writing,

Don’t let this BS scare you away.

"The racists are out and rearing their ugly heads with lots of fake tweets about violence at #BlackPanther screenings,” he wrote. “In truth, people from all walks of life have been enjoying the film together this weekend.”
In just the first three-to-four-days of its release,Black Panther earned a whopping $235 million, making it the fifth highest-earning of any film and the highest debut ever for a February film. Coogler, has made history for now having the highest-grossing film ever by a black director. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
