Mark Waid Quits Twitter In Wake Of Comment About Difficulty Of Not Putting Fist Through Jude Terror's Smug Ass Face

In all honesty, he does have a smug ass face.


Source: Twitter

On April 2, 2017 at 12:11 am, comic book writer Mark Waid tweeted "It is to David Gabriel's enormous credit that he somehow chooses, every day, not to put his fist through Jude Terror's smug-ass face."

David Gabriel is Marvel's VP of Sales, while Jude Terror is ex-Outhouse, now Bleeding Cool. Waid's remark was in response to Terror's articles over the weekend about Gabriel's statements at Marvel's Retailer Summit.

Waid took offense to people saying he threatened Jude Terror when he clearly didn't and quit Twitter this week.

Here are more examples of tweets from Waid that should not be interpreted as threats.

Mark Waid took to Facebook yesterday to explain his reasoning for leaving Twitter.

 

Below is an example of a comment on his Facebook post, showing that Mark Waid's Facebook followers are not incited to make threats by it.

Here are excerpts from We Told You So: An Oral History Of Fantagraphics Books, by Tom Spurgeon with Michael Dean, to reiterate that there's no reason anyone should feel uncomfortable about a tweet from Waid stating that "It is to David Gabriel's enourmous credit that he somehow, every day, chooses not to put his fist through Jude Terror's smug-ass face."

The first being about Waid's daily work habits, in which Gary Groth does not recount witnessing Waid repeatedly banging a telephone receiver on the ground over and over again and weeping.

Here is the time Kim Thompson did not say that Mark Waid threw a telephone at Joe Sacco.

Mark Waid has 90 days to return to Twitter or his account handle becomes available. The Outhouse is not counting down the days.
