“Why [would you] harm something you love because you’re disappointed with how it’s being released?” asks Eric Kripke as Season 2 drops to a 2.7 star rating (out of 5) on Prime Video.
Review bombing has become one of the uglier sides of fanboy whining, but it’s usually been relegated to outcry over women and/or people of color daring to have storylines or be main characters in projects like the “Star Wars” saga and Marvel movies.
Now, they’ve turned their attention to Amazon Prime’s “The Boys” for its second season. But this time, they don’t appear to have an issue with the content of the show, its characters or any of its storylines. Instead, they’re mad about how it’s being released, and showrunner Eric Kripke is understandably frustrated about it.
