Troll Activity on Stardust App

February 20, 2019
Dear Stardust Community, On the morning of February 20th, we were made aware that our media content provider, the open-sourced database TMDB, had been attacked by multiple troll accounts that changed the movie titles, images, and bios of many popular movies to reflect upsetting and inappropriate racist, homophobic, misogynistic, and anti-Semitic themes. As a result, these images and titles were displayed throughout our app. We are actively working to fix this by overriding the data we receive from TMDB at this time. We sincerely apologize for the offensive content that was displayed in our app as a result of this, and are truly sorry for any hurt this may have caused our users. - The Stardust Team
