A feud is born between Lady Gaga’s “Little Monsters” and fans of Marvel's big monster.
Both Gaga’s “A Star is Born” and “Venom” hit theaters Friday and the “Born This Way” singer’s dedicated fanbase has been accused of sabotaging Tom Hardy's comic book movie with phony reviews.
“I am the biggest Marvel fan but I just watched 'Venom' and I don't know what to say. Easily the worst movie this year. I expected so much better and now I’m just disappointed,” one review read.
This exact tweet appears to have been copied and pasted by a number of different Twitter users.
“Just got out of a 'Venom' preview.. Thankfully it was free. Worst two hours of my life. I will be taking my wife to see Lady Gaga's new movie #AStarIsBorn," another suspicious review said.
At least one Gaga fan is owning up to the mischief, saying, "It's us gaga fans creating fake ids to trash the 'Venom' premiere…We want more audience for 'A Star Is Born.'"
The latest “A Star Is Born” is the third time the story has been told on the big screen. A 1954 film starring Judy Garland and James Mason preceded a 1976 musical starring Barbra Streisand and Kris Kristofferson.
The latest version is the directorial debut of Bradley Cooper, who also stars in the movie.
Gaga's other acting credits include "Machete Kills" in 2013, "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" in 2014 and "Muppets Most Wanted," also in 2014.
