Reddit Users to Woody Harrelson: Everyone Here Knows Your Game

There’s nothing quite like the wrath of reddit.com users.

As reported today by techeye.net, a Friday reddit PR stunt to promote Woody Harrelson‘s new drama Rampart has thoroughly backfired. In concept alone, the idea of squeezing the former Cheers star’s wisdom into a 15-minute reddit answer window was doomed to fail. Per techeye.net, sailormooncake may well have said it best:

Mr. Harrelson/Mr. Harrelson’s PR agents:

You answered a total of four questions here today, and when I say “answered,” I mean that loosely. You have also embarassed Mr. Harrelson in the process. Please inform the rest of Hollywood that reddit is not a publicity outlet and that redditors don’t tolerate this kind of crap.

It’s well worth scanning the entire reddit thread. One person defiantly took back their “UpVote,” while another suggested Harrelson had earned the Oscar for Best Supporting Troll.
