Star Wars writer fired from Marvel for behavior on Twitter (hiding behind "safe spaces"?)
Marvel Studios has fired a writer for Star Wars franchise, Chuck Wendig, for his political threads on Twitter. The story by Kate Gardner on Mary Sue is here.
The problem seems to have to do with his being trolled for creating some LGBTQ and/or non-binary characters.
It’s unclear what happened behind the scenes with LucasFilm or even Disney.
This is going to be a controversial story. Maybe a Timcast?
