Marvel Comics writer Gerry Duggan recently got on Twitter to blast a comic fan and tell him to “eat a bag of pre-f***ed dicks.”
Duggan, a high profile comic writer, who is known for writing Cable, Savage Avengers and more, decided to respond to a comic book fan who posted a gif reaction in response to a recent Newsarama article about the upcoming X-Men event comic X of Swords. In response to the article, Twitter user PixelArtist95 posted a rather common gif of Stanely from The Office doing an eye roll.
Duggan, who was tagged in the original post by Newsarama, would respond writing, “Nate, wishing you success on your continuing journey outside comics.”
Another user would respond to Duggan saying, “No wonder this industry is tumbling. So professional.”

Duggan responded in turn by calling them a “dingdong.”
He wrote, “You dingdongs don’t get to show up in my mentions and keep your civilian status – you can say whatever the hell you want anywhere you want except in the mentions of someone else.”

One fan then called Duggan an *******.
He responded by telling him to “eat a bag of pre-f***ed dicks.
Duggan would later double down on his stance on this by saying people would not be treated well if they show up in his mentions…
Good lord man, I’m talking about dicks that show up in my mentions – want to be that guy – go ahead – meantime the adults have larger more pressing concerns— Gerry Duggan (@GerryDuggan) March 25, 2020
Sounds like either Gerry Duggan was just having a really bad day and on edge, that day…which happens..or…he just simply doesn’t know how Twitter works.
Either way, let us know what you think about how Duggan reacted. I know we are in a very stressful time and everyone is on edge about something. And I also know the comic book industry is going through it’s toughest stretch in its history.
But not sure all that can still justify such a reaction. But let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
The youtube channel HeelvsBabyface posted a really good video on all this. Check it out below.
