Bluey has become the target of Anime trolls who have set out to review bomb the beloved Australia childrens show The shows executive producer Daley Pearson recently shared a tweet celebrating Blueys popularity Posting a screenshot from the IMDb website Pearson said an episode of the wildly popular program had been ranked by fans on the platform as the No2 show of all time An episode of Breaking Bad held the top spot.

The controversy has created a storm on social media site Reddit which openly speculated that Anime fans are responsible for reviewing bombing the show Its a badge of honour really said one user Anything starts to get haters once it gets enough elevation They continued The fact that its getting review bombed the silly recent attacking articles all just testament to how good this show is that its hit that level And that its a kids show makes this all more amazing.
