Spoiling Avengers: Endgame has led some fans to want to strip certain figures of their livelihood. Such is the case with perhaps the most famous offender, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy. Shady spoiled the film publicly on Twitter shortly before the film’s release on Thursday, causing his 730,000 followers much anguish. Fans even started a Change.org petition calling for the NFL to dissolve his contract with the Bills, Marvel to ban him from seeing future MCU films in theaters and Twitter to delete his account.

Basically, the majority of people don’t mean to spoil the film. But there are always a few cases where films are spoiled, regardless of intent, in very peculiar fashion. It is frustrating, but at least spoilees can get a laugh out of having something spoiled in ridiculous fashion. Avengers: Endgame was no exception.
