HBO host Bill Maher continues to be rhetorically pulverized by comic book fans everywhere on the Internet after he trashed the beloved medium in the aftermath of comics icon Stan Lee’s death.
Insensitivity to the dead, coupled with disrespect for what many diehard fans consider to be an American art form on the level of jazz music or Ken Burns documentaries on American art forms.
Here is Marvel’s respectful bio of Stan Lee: “In 1939, a teenage Stan Lee began his career in comics and 75 years later, he is celebrated as the creative tour de force behind Marvel’s Silver Age – the co-creator of beloved characters like Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, Hulk, Thor and the X-Men. Take part in Stan ‘The Man’ Lee’s historic legacy!”
Bill Maher messing with comic book fans might actually be the most cataclysmic mistake of his career — and this is a man who said the 9/11 hijackers were not cowardly, right after 9/11. (READ: Exclusive Excerpts From Bill Maher’s Sexist Unpublished Book ‘What I’ve Learned About Women’)
TooFab.com reports: “But clearly, Twitter wasn’t ready to move on, lighting up the comments section to Maher’s tweets with more trolling about his comments regarding Stan Lee. In a blog post on Saturday, the “Real Time” host trashed adult fans of comic books and blamed Stan Lee for Trump’s ascension to power. Maher’s most direct criticism is one that has plagued the comic book medium for decades. “They pretended comic books were actually sophisticated literature,” Maher wrote in the post he titled “Adulting,” continuing the narrative that comic books are inherently for children…” TooFab.com passage ends
TooFab.com shows the incredible thread of people obliterating Bill Maher for his insensitivity, even after he tries to pivot to other topics. How long will this go on?

Left-Wing “Sleeping Giants” Deplatforming Activist Apologizes for “Diminishing” Minority Co-Founder
Matt Rivitz “gaslighted” the co-founder out of Sleeping Giants.
Matt Rivitz, the nominal founder of far-left deplatforming organization Sleeping Giants, issued a detailed public apology to a woman who has recently identified herself as a co-founder of the group. Nandini Jammi went public with her claims of being sidelined as a key figure within Sleeping Giants last week, claiming that Rivitz, a San Francisco ad executive, had “gaslighted” her out of public acknowledgment for her role in the organization.
Rivitz’s public apology, released Monday, appeared to largely vindicate her claims, acknowledging that Jammi was a co-founder of the group who had never received the due credit she claimed to have deserved.

Sleeping Giants is a leftist deplatforming organization that seeks to defund conservative websites by haranguing advertisers over their ad placements on platforms such as Breitbart. Rivitz’s acknowledgment of sidelining the group’s female co-founder- coming only after Jammi published a Medium article that accused Rivitz of erasing her contributions to the group.
“I want to show you how a woman of color almost disappeared from the movement she built, and what you can achieve when you refuse to follow the rules your white male “leader” sets for you,” said Jammi of Rivitz’ selfish desire for self promotion. Jammi also published a series of arrogant remarks she attributes to Rivitz, in which the leftist anti-free speech activist curtly told his younger co-founder to know her place.
Curiously, Sleeping Giants is registered as an LLC in California, making it likely that the deplatforming group is a for-profit entity. Rivitz, who went to great lengths to hide his identity as the figure behind the group, was only exposed as Sleeping Giants’ operator after a Breitbart News investigation. It’s still totally unclear who is funding the organization.
