DUBAI – Hell hath no fury like a bunch of millennials given an unwanted spoiler of Marvel’s highly anticipated movie, “Avengers: Endgame”.
A cable TV company in Dipolog City in the Philippines learned this too late when their premature airing of the much awaited movie prompted angry reactions from fans on social media.
Orient Cable Telecommunications Inc. aired “Avengers: Endgame” a day before the premier, causing a flood of angry comments and a police report.
“This act is a huge violation of the law and a huge disrespect of the film Industry,” a Facebook user wrote, echoing similar sentiments on social media. “This stunt you’re pulling off supports piracy,” the movie fan wrote.
Movie house operator Teatro de Dapitan, which is authorized to show the Avengers movie, has also filed a police case against the cable TV company.
Following the police case filed by Teatro de Dapitan’s lawyers on Thursday, Orient Cable has stopped airing the movie.
There was no immediate comment from Orient Cable as of this report. GAD/Expat Media
