Yesterday, reports began to spread that WarnerMedia was laying off around 600 employees. Among those employees are a possible third of DC’s editorial staff. Editor-in-chief Bob Harris and senior story editor Brian Cunningham are among the names reported to have been let go. There are also rumors that this will lead to the end of the DC Universe app.

While the news spread, DC comics creators past and present took to Twitter to offer their condolences and support.

There were those, as well, who pointed out that layoffs were not a signal that something was wrong with the comics business.

And others, like the always wonderful Gail Simone, were not interested in seeing people revel in the news.

What are your thoughts on the layoffs? Sound off below.
