Goddamn this site is fucking dull lately! No one reports on anything happening in comics that isn't a reworded press release anymore. So here ya go.




It's a long and interesting twitter thread:

That sucks... but he WAS being pretty negative and vulgar, like they claimed.

I'm coming to the realization that the majority of the problem isn't Twitter per se.
people that use Twitter not realizing the difference between freedom of speech and expressing yourself and just saying stupid things into a box are the problem

It's also weirdly specific. "Boot covered in shit"? Prolapsed... Dude has a fixation, should probably seek some sort of mental health intervention. Horse tranks and rubber rooms would be my expert opinion.

I can see however why they fired him. Regardless of who he said that about, you shouldn't go on social media and insult your customers.
