It is a toxic practice where a large number of people leave negative reviews for a movie/series in a short period without just cause. This is to harm the show/movie. This is what is currently happening to Batwoman. The critics gave fair reviews to the first episode. However, an unduly large number of negative audience reviews have surfaced in the short period since the pilot episode was first aired. While the series scored 72% due to the critics, audience ratings have given it a shocking score of a mere 11%.

It seems like the review bombing campaign is an attempt to hurt not only the show but also Ruby Rose. Batwoman is being targeted because it is the first superhero show with a lesbian central character. Ruby Rose herself identifies as gender fluid. This is why Ruby Rose and the show are at the receiving end of so much hate. Ruby Rose has quit Twitter also because of the hate.

Rotten Tomatoes has been able to counter the issue of review bombing for movies with some effective steps, but it is yet to do the same for TV shows.
