Did you know that being an obnoxious douchebag could be a profession? It can be, and Max Landis was just paid $3 million for it. How does a screenwriter whose last two films (Victor Frankenstein, American Ultra) were box-office bombs fail upwards with a script that has been described as essentially End of Watch with orcs?

Lexi Alexander believes it has something to do with male white privilege, and over the weekend, she fumed not necessarily over Landis’ male white privilege, but because he refuses to recognize it .

When screenwriter Zach Stentz came to Landis’ defense, Lexi Alexander went on a Twitter rant.

All of this talk about white, male privilege obviously didn’t sit well with Max Landis, who has been blocked by Lexi Alexander for some time and WANTS TO KNOW WHY RIGHT NOW.

No idea what he’s talking about here.

Irresponsible how? For calling out privilege?

Then it just gets weird.

What are these lies and delusions? I don’t know, but Alexander got a lot of new mentions in her Twitter timeline, compliments of Landis.

Look, I don’t know entirely what’s going on here — there’s a lot of subtweeting and not a lot of specifics — but if you don’t believe that Landis oozes privilege, just watch this YouTube video where he begs Lexi Alexander to talk to him, as though he had a right to it.
