Making Star Wars has called for a boycott of Star Wars comics following novelist and comic book writer Chuck Wendig being fired by the company due to his behavior on social media.
Wendig called a number of Star Wars fans “grotesque monsters, you racists and rapists and wretched abusers, you vengeful petty horrors.” He would also describe them as white supremacists.
Despite this sickening behavior, Making Star Wars called for a boycott against Star Wars comics to protest Marvel’s firing of Wendig.
Don’t buy Star Wars comics anymore. Just don’t do it. https://t.co/FaVPhCUem1

Making Star Wars wouldn’t be the only one to call for a boycott.
If you want to boycott, a good way to do so would be to specialize your Boycott and focus it in a way that will communicate the message you want.
Say? Only drop #StarWars titles. If they see a drop specifically on the Star Wars line, that’ll be more focused on the actual problem

I would really really like to keep on reading and buying @Marvel #StarWars but what they did to @ChuckWendig is so wrong on so many levels that yea, I could really join the quickly spreading boycott. They should correct their mistake, like, right now.

Most people seemed to be against the idea of a boycott.
Chuck has said a lot of things that are kinda controversial. I think he was fired for a variety of reasons.

The Wendig situation is bullshit and I totally feel Marvel made a TERRIBLE decision.
But boycotting all other SW comics is only going to hurt every other comic book maker. I really don’t think that’s the way to go.

Im gonna take my advice from Nike and Just Do it… I like the comics and the other great writers still deserve appreciation for the hard work they do…

This keeps getting better the more I think about it. A person that runs a Star Wars site is calling for a Star Wars boycott. This is GREAT!
You can’t make this shit up lol. https://t.co/QXZOQOdjNx

What do you think about Making Star Wars’ call for a boycott against Star Wars? Do you think they will stop covering Star Wars comics as well?
