Beloved Freaks and Geeks creator, Bridesmaids and Spy director Paul Feig is irritated with the constant criticism his Ghostbusters is getting, mostly from sexist assholes angry because his movie will be top-lined by females. These people are the scourge.
Today, while on vacation, Feig finally vented a little on Twitter, and while it’s far short of an apocalyptic meltdown, it gets the point across: He’s sick of the bullshit, so cut it out, haters.
God, you're tiresome, dude. https://t.co/MJHu3Vq9rh— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 23, 2015
@paulfeig the thing with your gb movie is not the female gb. Is the reboot angle who follows the same plot of the original.— Davide Passaia (@DAWWIDE) September 23, 2015
And since I'm on a roll, you, sir, are the biggest ass of them all. Seriously. You shit on all your former heroes. https://t.co/8BMi9YxZ5n— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 23, 2015
@paulfeig…that they will blindly support this shit that were being force fed & it's worth it to see Paul rant- it means it has an effect— Robert M. Cassidy (@robcassidy84) September 23, 2015
Also, if you’re wondering if filmmakers and celebrities read your idiotic tweets, there’s a good chance that they do.
One other note: Feig didn’t want the Ghostbusters cameos revealed. The media ruined that, too.
Gang, everyone should know that any and all cameo announcements are leaks and nothing we wanted made public. Media, please take note.— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 23, 2015
I only announced @Ernie_Hudson as a cameo because our set was overrun by paparazzi. I really wanted these cameos to be surprises. Just FYI.— Paul Feig (@paulfeig) September 23, 2015
Finally, because it’s adorable, here’s the Peanuts versions of the new Ghostbusters (Feig is a producer on the Peanuts movie).
