Marc Maron has never been a man to mince words. Listen to any of his work online, and it becomes abundantly clear how few f**ks the guy gives. Of course, more recently, he set the geek world on fire (that may be a mild exaggeration) when he said the superhero movies were “for grown, male nerd childs.” Needless to say, a lot of people weren’t too happy about that.
Of course, the dude’s a comic, and he was likely playing up the statement while on Conan. You LRM Online readers actually took the statement quite well, even if the general fan population didn’t. So angry were they that Maron had to take to Twitter to tell fans to knock it off.
“Hey, Marvel movie fans! Stop acting like outraged religious fanatics defending their belief system. It’s okay if I don’t believe. Let it go. Also, I’m actually big fan of a lot of comic art. Try to relax your mainstream asses.”
Maron isn’t wrong here. more often than I’d care to admit, we let our passion get the better of us, rather than just let people enjoy the content they want to enjoy. At the end of the day, many of us don’t agree with Maron (or we agree with him and embrace being grown, male nerd childs), but as many of you commenters stated, he’s entitled to his own opinion.
But don’t bother the dude.
