Neil Gaiman takes a proper view of the Rodriguez scandal

In the past, when I took a look at Gaiman's Twitter feed, I'd found several examples of his leftist influences that were most unfortunate, even though there were a few better examples he set at times. But, here's something where he agrees that artist Robbi Rodriguez was way out of line posting pictures of what was presumably his hairy bottom on social media before crippling his account page as a result:

Okay, this is a positive development for a change regarding Gaiman, whose work on Sandman, IMHO, I thought was overrated, if only because, again, I don't think he used Lyta Hall in a good way in his stories. And now that I recall, there was one time he said there's an important need to defend even icky free speech following the horrific jihad attack at the Bataclan in France, and on that matter, Gaiman is certainly correct too. He also once noted he was concerned about Turkey's Islamofascist regime.

That said, I'd still be a lot happier if he'd avoid any future associations with Brad Meltzer, as I recall he once had, because if he has no issues with a "novelist" who made light of serious issues, then he's only perpetuating embarrassments. And, it'll be most appreciated if Gaiman avoids speaking negatively about Comicsgate, as I may have once spotted him doing. Ethan Van Sciver for one was certainly pleased with Gaiman's reply on this subject.

You know, maybe you should team up with this guy: http://shawnsjames.blogspot.com/.

You both seem to have the same tastes and views on everything, you guys would probably get along like a house on fire.

Rodriguez' message was crude, stupid and offensive. At the same time, you have to admire his complete lack of concern about political correctness, and the sheer, well, bad-ass quality of it. All in all, it was a very Trump-like thing to do, and it draws the same mixture of disgust and admiration as Trump's outbursts of twittering.
