Author Chuck Wendig took to Twitter Friday to announce he was fired from Marvel Comics due to "not being civil." He's unsure whether this decision came from Marvel itself or from Lucasfilm.

 

His comics work for Marvel includes Star Wars: The Force Awakens AdaptationDarth Vader, and Hyperion. For Lucasfilm, he wrote the Aftermath trilogy: AftermathAftermath: Life Debt, and Aftermath: Empire's End.

Wendig has been the recipient of harassment since the release of the first Aftermath book with the reveal that there were three queer characters, continuing to being harassed for enjoying The Last Jedi.

I09's Beth Elderkin summed the situation up better than I could.
