Stephen King IT Movie Pennywise

A Lot Of People Are Pretty Pissed Off At Stephen King

In today’s political climate, it should come as no surprise that many people are always on the verge of an argument with one another. The latest example of this? A recent set of tweets out by horror icon, Stephen King.

People didn’t take too kindly to the first remark:

King then tweeted:

Followed by an apology:

Followed by more backlash:

King’s interesting week on Twitter wasn’t yet complete, however, as yet another tweet has caused backlash:

The backlash:

But some came to King’s defense:

King then tweeted an apology – which caused more backlash:

Though some defended him:

It’s worth pointing out that this isn’t the first time King has been outspoken on political topics. He famously banned current president Donald Trump from seeing the IT movie that came out last September:

He also said he was unfit for office:

And also had a pretty long rant about it:

“I saw a poll the other day that said, Hillary Clinton is only leading him by three points. If that’s true, you have to go back to that time when he rode that escalator down and announced the presidency, and everyone thought that it was a joke. The press thought it was a joke. Rolling Stone thought he was a joke. Jon Stewart said, “Oh please, let him continue to run; he’s the best joke material that we’ve had.” Well, nobody is laughing anymore.

Of all the candidates who ran this year, the only one who is remotely qualified to do the job is Hillary Clinton. There’s a lot of prejudice against her, just because she’s a woman. Having been raised by a woman and lived in a family where my wife has, like, six sisters, I hate that.”

And expressed disappointment in America:

“I am very disappointed in the country. I think that he’s sort of the last stand of a sort of American male who feels like women have gotten out of their place and they’re letting in all these people that have the wrong skin colors. He speaks to those people. Trump is extremely popular because people would like to have a world where you just didn’t question that the white American was at the top of the pecking order.”

It’s uncertain what King will say next to piss people off, but if it’s as interesting as these tweets, we’ll be sure to bring them to you. In the meantime, King should focus on the fact that Google thinks he’s been dead since 2006. Maybe he is tweeting from the grave? Who knows at this point.
