Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse Director Supports Antifa, Calls Fans Entitled Little Bitches
Spider Into The Spider-Verse

Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse director Peter Ramsey has been making some fiery comments on social media lately, coming out as pro-Antifa, as well as getting into a heated argument with fans and calling them “entitled little bitches” and that if they don’t like what he’s saying they don’t have to see the upcoming movie.

This issue has been talked about by a couple of anti-SJW outlets, including Bounding Into Comics, who recently did an article based on the tweets that Ramsey made on July 2nd, 2018.

Ramsey found himself in a debate with a number of fans over his support of Antifa, which has been classified by the FBI as a domestic terrorist organization, as reported Politico.

It started with his response to game developer Mark Kern on July 2nd, 2018.

Further into the thread as people began pointing out how Antifa act like fascists with their violence, Ramsey began defending them.

This ignores all of the rioting and violence committed by Antifa, as depicted in videos recorded by Leo Stratten and Ten Fold.

When Richard C. Meyer, the owner of the Diversity & Comics YouTube channel, attempted to point out to Ramsey that Antifa have attempted to murder people, Ramsey brushed it off.

When someone pointed out that attempting to kill someone with a bike lock is attempted murder, Ramsey once again brushes it off as a false equivalence.

While the pro-Antifa stance from Ramsey was a major turnoff for some potential fans of the upcoming Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, it was Ramsey’s attack against the fans that pushed a lot of people away.

The Quartering published a video pointing to more of Ramsey’s comments where he disparages them as “whining” and “entitled”.

In the continued debate with Diversity & Comics about movie criticisms and fans offering their views on the products, Ramsey stated that fans need to act like human beings and stop whining.

This kind of anti-fan, anti-consumer exchange that Ramsey has with his audience is equivalent to Paul Feig and media outlets attacking fans ahead of the release of the 2016 version of Ghostbusters. The movie went on to tank in sales.

DC Comics decided to take a different approach with their creators: they put a gag-order on their staff, prohibiting them from sharing certain things on social media, as well as restricting them them from negatively engaging with fans. So far it’s prevented any kind of unnecessary drama from taking place on social media, opposite of what’s been happening in the Marvel Comics camp.

Spider-Man: Enter The Spider-Verse is due to hit theaters this Christmas. If Ramsey continues to generate a lot of negative buzz for the movie, it could most certainly hurt its theatrical run, not unlike what happened with Solo: A Star Wars Story bombing at the box office.

As the old saying goes…
