Russians may have meddled with the 2016 election by trolling bitches on Twitter, but that may have been small potatoes compared to what Little Monsters will do to make sure Lady Gaga has a number 1 slot at the box office this weekend with A Star Is Born. Early feedback from A Star Has Born has basically been that all other movies should just wait until 2019 to come out because ASIB is going to win all the Oscars…and not just because Beyoncé was no longer attached to it. For some reason, Gaga fans felt threatened by the Marvel crowd because they got pissed over the Tom Hardy and Michelle Williams-led Venom opening the same weekend as Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s BY FAR BEST MOVIE EVER. Now some are saying Gaga stans are taking their Ed Sheeran ire and redirecting it by trolling Venom.
BuzzFeed says Venom has been greeted with so-so reviews while ASIB is raking in positive press. That being said, you can never be sure people are still going to turn out in droves for a film that is piss poor. That can actually happen! Just ask Kevin James! It didn’t take long for people to realize there were bots burping up bad reviews about Venom.

Beware of fake #Venom movie reviews. There are people trying to promote Lady Gaga's #AStarIsBorn and are fabricating negative reviews. Look out for bots and only trust proper and regular reviewers. pic.twitter.com/v9xznuN5R7

Little Monsters are known for being feral alley cats when it comes to defending Gaga. They spooked Ed off Twitter, tried to make “Perfect Illusion” a hit (ha!), and have even been accused of racist crap on Twitter. Gaga has told them to cut the shit in the past, but that’s apparently as easy as it is to tell Niagara Falls to stop, erm, falling? Gaga fans even told BuzzFeed they were creating fake accounts to get Star to outshine Venom. People really have too much time on their hands because now people are responding with claims A Star Is Born has neo-Nazi signs in it (it doesn’t) or blaming the trolls on rival studio DC:
Walked into #AStarIsBorn and was disappointed. Completely filled with Neo-Nazi propaganda and Bradley Coopers character constantly muttered the phrase the “South will rise again.” Taking my 8 kids and 9 grandchildren to see #Venom instead.

If you believe that Confederate flag is real, might I interest you in paying me $5,000,000, as I am a prince who is in need of a temporary loan, and I promise to pay you ten times as much when I get my inheritance. Cough. While I’m sure the crazed Gaga fans are definitely behind the Venom smear, I think we can blame Madonna fans for shitting on Star. That thing can’t do better than Dick Tracy at the box office. I know, I know, I’m being silly: Madge fans are too old to know what’s a Twitter.
