As the news broke, fans are supporting Zack Snyder, where a supporter termed it “Fake news”. According to a study at the University of Maryland, the Snyder fan accounts who voted for the director’s films “certainly do not look like they were generated by a human user.” During the voting period, there was a significant increase over previous weeks, during which the daily number of votes cast ranged from around 4,000 to 15,000.
