Proving once again that the Snyderbronies are the best hardcore fandom, proponents of the movement demanding that Warner Bros. release the Snyder Cut of Justice League have decided to raise money for suicide prevention using the hashtag #5For5 and encouraging $5 donations to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. Fiona Zheng, founder of the website ForSnyderCut.org, announced the campaign on Twitter:
We hope as many of you who can afford to will join us this Friday in celebration of the character created by Zack Snyder and developed by Patty Jenkins. Let's show the world that we can come together and make a real impact! #ReleaseTheSnyderCut pic.twitter.com/AmWWwVRDdq

And her efforts earned a thank you from Zack Snyder himself:

The Snyder Cut of Justice League is a version of the movie which preserves Zack Snyder’s Vision, which was unceremoniously stripped from the film via reshoots by alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon. Whedon replaced many of Snyder’s cool Superman scenes with scenes of Cyborg saying “booyah,” much to the chagrin of fans who enjoyed Snyder’s work on Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. Snyder left the film before it was completed due to a personal tragedy, the suicide of his daughter.
So while other hardcore fandoms are crowdfunding a ludicrous remake of a highly successful movie or organizing hate mobs to chase actresses off Twitter, Snyderbronies are mobilizing to make a real difference, showing everyone else how it’s done. If any of these fandoms deserves to have its demands met, it’s this one. Why not do the right thing and release the Snyder Cut, Warner Bros.?
