We recently became aware of a situation on IMDB. Yes, that’s right. The Internet Movie Database served as the landing spot for a strange accusation from user “brian__007” a few days ago. This users post ignited a fire under J.R.R. Tolkien fans and caused quite a stir in the community. Some were outraged by the users sheer lack of knowledge. Others perceived it as humorous and helped fan the flames. Unfortunately, IMDB removed the post and the many comments that followed. However we managed to save the initial post for your reading pleasure.
On Tuesday, June 19th, 2012, username “Brian__007” made the following post on an IMDB message board for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Enjoy.
