Jeremy Renner and his alter-ego, Hawkeye, may have played a role in helping to beat Thanos but it seems his power was not enough to beat what he says are trolls who have invaded his very own free app. The app known as Jeremy Renner Official is finally shutting down after apparently turning into a place that Renner “can’t or won’t condone”.
Renner posted the above message, announcing why the app was shutting down.
“The App has jumped the shark, literally. Due to clever individuals who were able to manipulate ways to impersonate me and others within the app I have asked ESCAPEX, the company that runs this app to shut it down immediately and refund anyone who has purchased any stars over the last 90 days.”
He continued, “My sincere apologies for this not to have 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 hope to see you on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Facebook.”
The Jeremy Renner Official app was a venue where fans can see Instagram-like photos of the actor, post their own stories, and hang out with other members who are huge fans of Jeremey Renner.
But the app, that started in 2017, became so popular that, according to Renner, users began to impersonate him and other members. Users created satirical accounts of OJ Simpson, Casey Anthony, Jar Jar Binks, and Jeffrey Epstein to write pro-Renner messages. This apparently proved too much for the actor.
Other members of the Jeremy Renner official app tried to fight back but they were no match against the powers of the what Renner called “clever individuals”
This caused the actor to ask ESCAPEX, the company that runs the app, to shut it down. Renner also directed the company to refund users who have purchased stars, or the app’s currency. According to the actor, he detests what the trolls have done in the app and won’t condone any of their actions.
Finally, Hawkeye thanks all his super-fans for supporting him with words of encouragement, amazing art, stories and time shared on the app.
