Death Note Director Adam Wingard Quits Twitter After Death Threats

Something something they were writing his name in notebooks.

Does Death Note currently hold a 38% on Rotten Tomatoes? Yes. Is it objectively and subjectively bad? Yes. Does director Adam Wingard deserve to die for it? No. The director quit Twitter Tuesday following harassment and death threats.

Following the film's release, Wingard went back and forth with keyboard cowboys on occasion. On August 26, Wingard posted a message online that read, "Sorry trolls but the artist always wins in the long run." The actor followed up the post with another message, writing, "I love how many people feel personally attacked by this tweet. Its [sic] almost like troll bait. Those that bit expose themselves." Wingard then wrote, "Film criticism is different than b*tching at filmmakers on twitter." 

Wingard didn't give warning before his account deletion, but fans have come to his side.

Fuck off indeed.
