There’s been a lot of fear going around because of the recent COVID-19 outbreak. Today, the novel coronavirus has infected more than 122,005 people around the globe and killed more than 4,000.
Frustrated by the US government’s response to the outbreak, Marvel comic book writer Dan Slott has decided to take to Twitter to express his outrage over US President Donald Trump and the administration.
Lamenting over the administration’s complacency over the COVID-19 pandemic in a now-deleted tweet (via Bounding Into Comics), Slott gave a large f*** you to those planning to vote for Trump again.
“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,” the Marvel comic book writer posted on his Twitter handle.
While Slott has every right to express his opinion online, Trump supporters who’ve been following the writer’s work have been calling out on the post online, saying that they don’t really appreciate being cursed at.
Slott has shared an edited post, tweeting something tamer.
Using the first few lines of his original post, the comic book writer reminds his followers that while people continue to die because of the coronavirus outbreak, Trump has been golfing at his resort and profiting off of it.
This isn’t the first time that Slott’s expressed outrage over Trump’s administration. The comic book writer has always been open about his feelings about the POTUS, so Marvel fans supporting trump shouldn’t really take offense.
