Fans, haters ‘deleting Twitter’ over ‘Spider-Man’ spoilers

All they want is a spoiler-free zone.

“Spider-Man” fans are being ridiculed mercilessly online after allegedly scrapping their social media accounts to avoid seeing spoilers for the upcoming “Spider-Man: No Way Home.” The hashtag #DeletingTwitter is going viral as the ever-sympathetic Twitter trolls rip into the seemingly overzealous measure.

The online beatings were sparked after Sony Pictures uploaded a video PSA to Twitter and YouTube, in which cast members try to dissuade Marvel fans from sharing film spoilers regarding the latest “Spider-Man” installment, which premieres Friday, Dec. 17.

Sony uploaded it in response to trolls inundating Twitter with spoilerific reveals under the hashtag #SpiderManNoWayHome.

In the accompanying video, Jacob Batalon (who plays Peter Parker’s best friend Ned Lees) implores fans, “Please don’t spoil it for anyone,” to which Tom Holland — who portrays the titular Spider-Man — replies, “Yeah, no spoilers” and Zendaya (MJ) gives an approving, “Mm-hmm.”

“NO SPOILERS. Don’t be that person,” Sony wrote in the caption. “If you want to be extra safe, stop reading comments, mute keywords, and start staying off social media today!”

Sony’s words of warning were taken to heart by “Spider-Man” die-hards, with one stan account posting, “Deleting Twitter tomorrow. See y’all on the other side.”

“I’ll be deleting twitter if any of you mfs spoil this for me,” vowed another.

Needless to say, Marvel fanatics were ripped over the seemingly overzealous measure.

“Seeing why #DeletingTwitter is trending, only to find out it’s only so people don’t see spoilers of Spiderman,” mocked one critic.

“Deleting Twitter” is trending because people don’t want to see Spiderman spoilers in their feed. Uhmmm…. How about just not going on Twitter for a few days…?” wondered another.

“Folks are #DeletingTwitter to avoid movie spoilers. What in the world?” scoffed another. “I joined twitter for the spoilers. It’s easier to not open the bird app when I don’t want them instead of declaring a mass exodus. Our collective moronic behavior is soaring to new heights.”

Yet another detractor advised, “Just mute tags if it’s that serious.”

Some naysayers found the matter especially extreme, given the myriad better reasons to dump social media.

Seeing that DELETING TWITTER is trending but it’s because people want to avoid movie spoilers and not because they want to improve their mental health,” mocked one commenter in an apparent reference to social media’s purported adverse psychological effects.

One Twitter wit snarked, “Deleting Twitter to avoid anyone spoiling when the next asteroid is going to hit Earth for me.”

Several cruel spoilsports apparently even revealed the ending of “No Way Home.” One killjoy in particular — warning: do not click on the following link if you don’t want to know — seemed to think it was no big deal to divulge a huge spoiler and added the dismissive commentary, “ehhhhhhhhhh.”
