Even in a year that gave us
peak Q Anon, this may be the most 2018 conspiracy theory ever.
There are people online who believe Netflix used bot accounts to
spread viral memes about its
record hit movie Bird Box.
The over-the-top apocalyptic thriller, which features a family
making the perilous journey down a river in hopes of finding a
community safe from invisible monsters that have taken over the
world, is ripe with meme potential. The monsters inexplicably make
victims commit suicide, which plays perfectly into the younger
generation’s grimdark sense of humor.
