Thanks to the internet making it easy for petitions to gain support across social media, virtually any cause can be championed and potentially supported by those who share the views of a petition creator. Since its release, The Last Jedi has been the source of controversy amongst fandom, inspiring countless different petitions. The latest of these petitions
The petition, which currently has less than 30 signatures out of its goal of 100, tries to explain that the site, which merely compiles information from a variety of reviews posted on hundreds of outlets around the world, should be eradicated for giving visitors information the petition creator considers to be incorrect.
The petition reads:
"Rotten Tomatoes has a very flawed aggregate rating system. Take for example the Critic's Ratings for Star Wars: The Last Jedi (93%),
"RT has a very flawed aggregate rating and broken system. 3/5 score for a Disney film is listed a fresh/good review and the same 3/5 review score for
Luckily, the creator of the petition was able to list other outlets that they believe have more reliable rating systems that viewers can check out.
Another petition centered around The Last Jedi emerged following the film's opening, wishing that the film be stricken from the official Star Wars saga canon due to audience's displeasure with the details of Luke's backstory. The film currently has a 92% positive rating from critics and 52% positive rating from audiences.
This is only the latest attempt to get Rotten Tomatoes to shut down, with last summer's Suicide Squad earning so many negative reviews that a petition scored over 15,000 signatures in an effort to shut the site down.
