For no reason, Russian-speaking commentators flocked to the artist’s account.

There is such a popular pastime in Russia – going to the social networks of Hollywood stars and leaving unexpected comments there. At one time, Lady Gaga, Vincent Cassel, Ben Affleck, Johnny Depp and others fell under the spontaneous Russian flash mob. Russian “cyber attack” usually consists of trolling comments under any of the social media posts, and it is for a certain reason (saying goodbye to girlfriend, “advice” from a colleague, etc.).
Now it’s the turn of Jason Statham, the star of the Guy Ritchie movies and the Fast & Furious franchise. For no reason, Russian-speaking commenters took to the artist’s* Instagram account (owned by Meta*, recognized as an extremist organization in Russia) and piled on a wild amount of funny and absurd quotes that did not belong to the Brit himself. Because?
The fact is that Russian social networks (and messengers too) are literally overflowing with false statements from Statem in a harsh childish style. From the series “Many would be horrified to see in the mirror not their faces, but their souls”, “Don’t talk about yourself out loud. Let others talk about you quietly.
It is not clear who is interested in placing pathos and often completely meaningless phrases under the pictures with Jason, but in terms of the number of fictitious statements, the actor can only compete with Vladimir Ilyich Lenin and Lao Tzu.
Now they decided to put the longstanding meme to work and flooded Statham’s official account with a bunch of made-up quotes. Everyone has fun as they can: “Live and write from the heart”, “Do you doubt? Eat waffles with meatballs!”, “Mom taught me not to swear, but life taught me to swear in front of my mother”, “I took a knife, cut, took a sandwich, ate”, etc.
Such messages have thousands of likes, they continue to multiply, and Jason himself does not delete them. It is possible that in the evenings, over a glass of whiskey, a Hollywood star rereads with a dictionary and laughs out loud: “What creative and funny people these Russians are!”
