After Chuck Wendig Was Fired, Making Star Wars Calls for Boycott

In a series of tweets, Wendig stated that he was sacked from writing the remainder of the Marvel Star Wars series: "because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring..." I'm fired. Because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring.

Marvel Comics made a decision to let Chuck Wendig go from the company following a tweet that was posted after Brett Kavanaugh's confirmation to the Supreme Court, which saw Wendig apparently call Kavanaugh (and probably Donald Trump) supporters a slur of expletives and also racists, rapists, abusers and more.

The Comics book writer Chuck Wendig revealed an important message through his twitter handle that he was sacked from the Marvels for the vulgar tweets that he used opposite his criticisers in Twitter and he also revealed a lot of information about his firing and threats he received for his Aftermath series. Since the book's release, the harassment levied at Wendig has only intensified.

What's interesting, is that following James Gunn getting fired, Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson proceeded to delete over 20k of his own tweets.

Chuck also revealed that he faced a lot of harassments through the Internet and YouTube, Facebook, Reddit etc which led him to file a police complaint against them.

A number of people even began mocking Making Star Wars. It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part. Do you think they will stop covering Star Wars comics as well? (Just please leave me out of it.) (All that being said, a lot of wonderful people still work inside those institutions and storyworlds, and I hope you'll continue to support them and the stories they're telling.) To conclude: this is really quite chilling. I am very sad, and anxious for the country I live in, and the world, and for creative people all around. I have a dire fear this is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.
