Comic book creator Rob Liefeld may have gotten too big for his britches yesterday when he made a controversial video post on social media. Liefeld said that he believed DC Comics would be going under very soon and he would eat popcorn and watch on as it happens. He went on to say that he thinks DC Comics upper management should all be fired/replaced if the company has any hope to survive. His comments sent shock waves of course through the geek community.
Liefeld has since quit Twitter. But not before a battle of words between himself and some very protective DC Comics loyalists:
I mean everyone is entitled to their own opinion no matter how controversial it may be. This is America. But Rob, maybe in the future you shouldn’t respond to trolls. It just turns into a battle of who has more time to kill and sit in front of a computer.
