After the announcement, Dream replied to the tweet and said, “I’m going to rig it.”

Some fans took exception to his tweet, trying to get the hashtag “DreamShutTheF**kUp” trending on Twitter.

While the hashtag was viral, an image began spreading further detailing exactly what the anti-Dream movement wanted.

The image said, “On October 16, we shall mass report Dream’s YouTube channel and his other social media to get rid of him and make the Dream stans cry about it on Twitter.”

This image (and various other versions of it too) has been shared countless times all over Twitter.
