Comic book creator Ethan Van Sciver took to Twitter to educate Bill Sienkiewicz on Comicsgate. Van Sciver’s education of Sienkiewicz came after the New Mutants artist penned a Facebook post where he decried Comicsgate and decided to call those participating in the movement “assholes.”

He would take it a step further and call them “creepy racist misogynist uncles showing up at reunions and pissing in the punchbowl.” He would continue with insults calling Comicsgate supporters “awful ambassadors,” “brownshirts,” and “goddamned ugly dicks.” He would end his post saying, ” you won’t be missed one damned bit.”

Sienkiewicz’s post would inspire what appears to be a coordinated media attack on Comicsgate and its members. There would be articles from CBR, Paste, Vulture, Polygon, Daily Dot, Inverse, and more.

Ethan Van Sciver took the chance to educate Sienkiewicz as well as the public at large on Comicsgate:

We have documented a number of points that Ethan points.

Take a look:
