The latest episode of DC Universe’s Harley Quinn pokes fun at the toxic Justice League fans who are clamoring for Zack Snyder’s version to be released in a funny opening clip. The show is known for making meta jokes and references and most fans actually went with it. In fact, they went as far as recreating the shirt the guy in the clip was wearing.
The promo footage for “Batman’s Back Man” shows a fanboy wearing a “Release the Snyder Cut” shirt, which the fans recreated to raise funds for The American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. The shirts are limited and only available to purchase for 30 days from Ink to the People. Sold at $25 apiece, the shirt can be purchased in either black or blue, which is what the guy in the animated series was wearing.
Snyder, whose own daughter passed away from suicide, has repeatedly voiced his appreciation of these efforts. As you may know, this isn’t the first time some fans have done creative things like these to raise funds for charity.
Ever since the release of the Justice League, fans have been campaigning for the release of Snyder’s original version, with some of the stars lending their support too. Of course, the Harley Quinn clip isn’t making generalizations of the Snyder Cut fans, but it does poke fun specifically at those who use these movements to spread negativity on social media.
New episodes of Harley Quinn get released every Friday on DC Universe.
