DC Fans are signing a petition to shut down Rotten Tomatoes after the site gave Suicide Squad a 31% rating.
Suicide Squad was the salvation that DCEU and DC fans were looking forward to after the dismal performance of Batman vs. Superman Dawn of Justice on the Box Office earlier this year.

The Warner Bros. and DCEU approached the advertising of the movie with a professional hand lending a great many trailers, clips and art for the fans to crave over while they waited for the movie and the movie has become the most anticipated movie this August.
Following its world premiere this Monday, the movie is due to release in the U.S. and many other countries this Friday. The movie, having been already watched by the critics has not fared well.
According to numerous critics, the movie has failed to live up to the expectations it built up. Some have called it an action bust, some have accused the plot to be lack luster and some have a problem with the movie overall.
The result of all the critics’ comments was a 31% rating on the box office site Rotten Tomatoes. Rotten Tomatoes currently holds a 27% rating for BvS.
While many people will consider this rating as they did for BvS, it has caused a stir among the DC fans. Many DC fans were also disappointed by the BvS rating because they loved the movie and it was what they had expected.
The current Suicide Squad rating led one Egyptian DC fan to initiate a petition on Change.org in which the DC fans are demanding Rotten Tomatoes to be shut down. The petition has already gathered more than 16 thousand signatures.
The DC fans are saying that critics are against DC and some fans have went on to say that the critics are colluding with Marvel Comics to ruin the DC campaign.

A rampage of internet disses and angry exchange of communication has also ensued in light of the petition. While the critics hold out their own, the eventual success of the movie depends on how it actually performs on the box office.
