Paul Feig Tells ‘Ghostbusters’ Reboot Haters To Go Fuck Themselves

     September 24, 2015


Paul Feig has had enough of the Ghostbusters hate on Twitter, and he really can’t be blamed. Reactions to his all-female reboot have been hateful and misogynistic at their worst, but Feig gives the best advice: “just let the movie happen.”

Sure, we’re just as guilty as anyone at judging movies and TV shows negatively before we see them, and the current media culture of months of promotional pics and drips of information only makes it easier to create our own vision of what might be coming rather than what actually is coming. But there’s also a difference between harmless speculation and harassing the film or TV creators on social media, or spending all of one’s time spewing negativity.

Feig fired back at some of his online critics succinctly and with some vitriol of his own, although mostly he just sounds fed up. What we know for sure is that Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Sigourney Weaver and Annie Potts are all on board with the reboot, and are planning cameos. It’s all going to be ok.
