Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson called President Donald Trump a murderer.

Derrickson’s description of the President came in response to a recent tweet from the President that reads, “WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF. AT THE END OF THE 15 DAY PERIOD, WE WILL MAKE A DECISION AS TO WHICH WAY WE WANT TO GO!”

Derrickson then used a video of The Lord of the Rings’ Gollum to call the President a “murderer.”

Derrickson would continue to rail against the President over the next few days. On March 24, Derrickson wrote, “Sacrificing money to save lives is the cost of a pandemic.”

He added, “Sacrificing lives to save money is the cost of an evil criminal enterprise.”

He then concluded by comparing President Donald Trump to Communist leaders Josef Stalin and Mao Zedong , “Trump intends to kill his own people to his own ends, just like Stalin and Mao. This is a serious as it gets.”

Later that day, Derrickson doubled down writing, “Well, that’s one way for this idiot to kill off his own base.”

Derrickson would also describe Trump as “evil” and “crazy.”

On March 25th, Derrickson would continue to rail on the President accusing him of committing “mass murder.”

He wrote, “Because of you Donald Trump, The United States will soon have the highest Covid-19 death toll in the world — many if not most of the dead being your own “real people”.”

He then added, “Let’s see how popular you remain after your deranged mass murder.”

Derrickson recently dropped out of directing the Doctor Strange sequel, Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness with initial reports indicating the reason was “creative differences.”

Derrickson would also state the reason was due to “creative differences.” However, he also indicated he would still be attached to the film as an Executive Producer.

However, rumors from 4Chan indicated Derrickson was canned because he “refused to meet deadlines and was constantly coming up with excuses.” The same rumor also detailed that he “frequently blamed Disney even though they were very accommodating to him.”

This rumor also indicated there were creative differences with Derrickson wanting to use Nightmare as the main villain whereas Kevin Feige wanted Scarlet Witch to be the primary antagonist.

Derrickson will be hosting a “Quarantine Watch Party” with ComicBook.com on March 26th at 9 PM ET. The idea is to watch Doctor Strange in your home and use #QuarantineWatchParty to discuss the film on Twitter and Instagram.
