Following the poor reception to the Netflix Death Note film adaption, director Adam Wingard has received much harassment from some who disliked it.
It has reached the point where Wingard (who has hopes of making a sequel) has deleted his twitter after getting death threats and large amounts of harassment. At first the director semi-engaged with the “trolls” but sadly that seemed to make the situation worse, including a message Wingard that read “Film criticism is different than bitching at filmmakers on twitter”.
Some are concluding that his own taunting messages brought out the more aggressive Death Note watchers. No matter the course, death threats and harsh harassment is unwarranted.
