No, really. I would like some fucking answers as to how a company whose biggest properties were invented by a bunch of Jewish guys winds up employing the market share of racist, arguably antisemitic, jackholes.
Ok, Mr. White Guy. Can I assume you’re a white guy? Because you sound pretty fucking white here.
People telling you that you don’t get to use the N-word without looking like an asshole, is not even remotely the same thing as killing well over 6 million people in an attempted genocide.
People telling you that women don’t like to be called bitches, whores and sluts and will probably not date you if you do, is not the same thing as invading Poland, France, Austria, and on…
People telling you it’s probably in your best interests to quit being an asshole to people who don’t look like you are not a government capable of censoring you or imprisoning you if you don’t comply. They get to not buy your shit. That’s how Capitalism works, asshole. Or so an awful lot of men keep telling me.
For the millionth time, people calling you an asshole and not buying your stuff is not CENSORSHIP. UGH!
American school system, why are you so terrible at teaching this???????
Ok, I know DC had the big sexual harassment scandal, but Marvel seems to. have really cornered the market on racist fucksticks here. First, Nick Spencer and Hydra Cap, and then his issue of Sam Wilson Captain America where SJWs were the villains, the many other incidents I could google if it were not late and I were not already grumpy from a massive coughing fit while working out, so I’ll let you guys do some homework on that.
I mean, it’s possible I’m missing a lot on the DC side because I’m not that big a DC fan, the Wonder Woman movie aside. Maybe I really am just missing all of it.
But, what the shit, guys? Are you trying to bring Jack Kirby back from the dead to kick some ass? Because I am laying money that his revenant arises to do some house cleaning one of these days. I have been fantasizing about that, in fact. I may have to write some fanfic. Because that needs to fucking happen.
Here is one of my favorite Kirby anecdotes:
On occasion the Timely office would get phone calls and letters from Nazi sympathizers threatening the creators of Captain America. Once, while Jack was in the Timely office, a call came from someone in the lobby. When Kirby answered, the caller threatened Jack with bodily harm if he showed his face. Kirby told the caller he would be right down, but by the time Jack reached street level, there was no one to be found.
However, this quote just makes me sad:
Years later, [Kirby] told an interviewer, ‘I once got a letter from a Nazi who told me to pick out any lamppost I wanted on Times Square, because when Hitler arrived, they’d hang me from it. It was typical of a genre of fans who have long since died out.
Because sadly, those assholes have not died out. And Marvel seems to be hiring an awful lot of them. From failed politician Nick Spencer to this latest assclown.
Shame on you, Marvel. Shame on you. I want to love you because Squirrel Girl, Captain Marvel, Kamala Khan, Spider-Gwen, just to name a few. Not to mention my beloved X-men and Captain America. But when you keep hiring anti-semites, racists, misogynists, just… ugh. Can we stop? Please, vet some of the people you hire. That’s all I’m asking. It’s great Malin can make a deadline. Maybe you could find someone who could make a deadline and NOT equate being told racism isn’t cool with the holocaust.
