So Marvel writer Dan Slott effectively just told a huge portion of its fanbase to go fuck themselves if they go and vote for Trump again. I mean, I feel like you’d lose your job if you told your potential customers to go fuck themselves but I guess Dan Slott is immune to that rule. Seriously, I’m reading the headline of this blog and I still can’t believe it happened.
Look, I have my own political stances on things, as do you! We all have things that we agree and disagree politically. However, when you say fuck you to your potential customers while representing a major corporation, usually that’s basically committing career suicide in a normal functioning society.
I’m all for expressing your opinions as I do as well on my personal Twitter account, however my man Dan here is representing Marvel to an extent, so in a way unfortunately, it comes off as if Marvel themselves have told fans of a certain political side to fuck off if anyone of them chooses to vote for Trump again in 2020! Think about it this way, if Dan has said this exact same thing to a candidate of the opposite side, would he still be doing his job? It’s clear there’s an underlining bias here and it’s getting worse.
This administration is NOT on top of this emergency.
They’re ignoring or contradicting their OWN experts.
People are dying.
And he’s golfing at his resort AGAIN and profiting off it.
I’m NOT saying f*ck you for voting for him.
I AM saying f*ck you if you vote for him AGAIN.

Personally, I really don’t care who the Americans chose to vote for since I’m not American myself (I’m not a fan of Trump either if I being real here), however, I’m more focusing on the principle of this whole debacle and what this says about Marvel going forward. If Marvel doesn’t issue some type of statement, disavowing what Dan has said in his tweet and show that they are a neutral party in this political sphere, it would then just confirm that Marvel really just doesn’t care about some their customers or the comic book business itself.
I mean, we kinda already knew this but this is just bad regardless. You have a few people on their department taking their political viewpoint to the extreme and literally using it to destroy a medium many of us grew up with.
Let me make this perfectly clear: He can attack Trump all he wants, drag him to hell even, but the moment you start attacking your potential customers in an attempt to either virtue signal or whatever it is while representing a massive corporation like Marvel, there has to be some type of consequence.
