Dark Knight Controversy on Rotten Tomatoes

Dark Knight Controversy on Rotten Tomatoes
Quite a stir has arisen over comments made regarding The Dark Knight Rises on RottenTomatoes.com.

Warner Bros. owns both the Rotten Tomatoes website as well as "The Dark Knight Rises".  The studio has now been put in a position to defend critics of their film. Apparently, there were some reviewers who did not like the film, and readers of Rotten Tomatoes made it loud and clear that they were furious about the negative reviews.  

The comments aimed towards the reviewers were so brutal that Rotten Tomatoes has, for the first time ever, suspended user comments.  Matt Atchity, the Site's Editor-in-Chief, said, "It just has to be too much hate..."
Even with the bad reviews, the film has an overall 84% positive rate on the site.
