Paul Feig Lets ‘Ghostbusters’ Haters Have It on Twitter

Paul Feig is mad as hell, and he’s not going to take it anymore. Ever since it was announced Feig is rebooting Ghostbusters with an all-female cast, the internet has decidedly split between supporters and the more vocal detractors of the project. With every hint and look at the new cast, new tech, and new props, vitriol spews from angry fanboys hiding online.

Well, it seems that Feig is no longer sitting back and taking it quietly, as evidenced by his extended Twitter rant and numerous shots fired back at the hateful comments regarding this new Ghostbusters. Check these out:

These are only a few highlights from Feig, who clearly wants haters to stick it up their collective asses and wait for the film to hit theaters. I am firmly in Paul Feig’s corner here; criticizing a female Ghostbusters reboot before it’s even close to completion is veiled sexism¬†of the highest order. And frankly, I don’t understand the issue here.

Don’t worry fanboys, anew version of Ghostbusters isn’t going to erase the original from existence. Shut up, let the film happen, and you just might be pleasantly surprised.
