As Twitchy told you last week, Snopes’ crackerjack hoax-debunking team failed to bust Erica Thomas for her race hoax, but they did manage to go after the Babylon Bee for their satirical take on it. Babylon Bee founder Adam Ford was not amused by Snopes’ stunt, and he made his disgust clear in a long thread calling Snopes out for their demented crusade against the Bee.
Now, it seems they’ve been forced to take more decisive action to defend themselves against Snopes’ smear campaign:

Wow. Just wow. Anyone who has half an ounce of intelligence could recognize Babylon Bee as satire.

Good job @snopes I hate you as much as the corporate media now.

Snopes deserves whatever punishment’s coming their way.
This isn’t going to go well for you.
