The Funniest Tweets About Jeremy Renner’s Fan App Being Shut Down Because Of Trolls

Poor Jeremy Renner. He was just trying to do something nice by launching an app for his fans to connect on. He thought maybe they could bond over their love of his work and even have some fun. What ended up happening, however, was that Renner and his fans got trolled so hard that now the whole thing has had to be shut down.

The app, aptly titled Jeremy Renner Official, had no verification system, thereby making it way too easy for trolls to infiltrate the app and even impersonate the actor. It became increasingly unclear that the whole user experience was a little chaotic and couldn’t really continue on. 

Renner announced the app’s imminent closing to users via a push notification in a message that said only, “App coming down very soon…” However, he soon expanded on that brief thought by providing a more detailed explanation of his decision to close the app in a post… on the app. Ahem.

“Goodbye … The app has jumped the shark. Literally. Due to individuals that were able to manipulate ways to impersonate me and others within the app I have asked ESCAPEX, the company the runs this app to shut it down immediately and refund anyone who has purchased any stars over the last 90 days,” Renner wrote.

“What was supposed to be a place for fans to connect with each other has turned into a place that is everything I detest and can’t or won’t condone,” he continued.

“My sincere apologies for this to have not turned out the way it was intended. To all the super-fans who have supported me with your words or encouragement, amazing art, stories and time shared on the app, a genuine THANK YOU and I hope to see you on Instagram, Twitter, Youtube and Facebook.”

The Jeremy Renner Official app launched back in 2017 but the recent spate of trolling was enough to make the star pull the plug on the whole operation. You see, guys? This is why we can’t have nice things!!
