It seems that Twitter has once again turned on Brie Larson over her use of cyber culture. Previously they turned on her for promoting NFTs and now they are mad that she is her own space in the Metaverse.
Apparently the ‘Captain Marvel’ actress has set up a Some Place space in the Metaverse and there are a lot of vocal anti-NFT, anti-crypto, anti-metaverse people on Twitter. Which is ironic given that Twitter is supporting NFTs. I guess they aren’t mad enough to actually quit the platform but they can get mad at celebrities instead. Cyber culture is alright when it gives them a place to yell from, but terrible if anyone else uses it.
But back to the story.
Brie Larson posted this Tweet:

Her fans are not happy about it, but given that she knew they were salty about her NFT she is still doubling down–clearly she doesn’t care what they think.
Here are some of the angry tweets (there are many more):
Hope you got paid $7,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 for this because that’s about how much damage you just did to your rep

Haha also, anyone who complained about the effects of the pandemic on people’s brains is not allowed to say this game/experience is good. This is ultimate immersion into a fake world. Yes, there are benefits to this technology, but living in it isn’t one of them. #Metaverse #VR

And to think we fought for you and thought you were different. Seems like you need that money. Which is fine and cool, but no longer will we try and defend you to others

Oh this one I could see happening!
I hear Captain Marvel 2 Tickets are gonna have NFT’s attached to them!
I made this up but it will probably be true one day what with Disney looking to get into NFT’s, Warners are given them with physical Trading cards 🤦🏻♂️

I don’t think she cares:

I don’t understand all the hate? Has no one ever heard of SecondLife? World of Warcraft? No..? Have I reached that age? Maybe she found it was more comfortable for her to not physically interact with the outside. By the way some of you are judging, I can see why…

you know where you won’t find all this negativity? in your personal space at @some_place 😉
welcome Brie 🎉🥳

Y’all can’t be serious with this. Let @brielarson do what she wants and if you disagree you’re allowed to just skip past the post. All of you thinking that someone should make a decision based on how you feel is weird.

Valid point here.
For the people hating on NFTs because some artist may have their work stolen, lets look at history of companies that do the same thing, yet no one talks about that. https://t.co/OGBEMyP4DO
At least with NFTs, artist have the opportunity to sell their work with no middle man..

It’s interesting to watch for sure. Some of the people that have slammed others for not liking the actress in the past are now turning on her over this. While people who didn’t care for her comments in the past are defending her right to do as she pleases.
Talk about a complete shift.
I’m sure she loves the publicity either way.
