Sm4wa2xhcm6x02jh8ap8 Twitter Wars: A New Nope

On two separate occasions, I was called a troll by screenwriter Max Landis, the son of legendary director John Landis (Animal House, The Blues Brothers). Before we get to the “why” of that, and why I’m just so incredibly proud that it happened, we have to (potentially legally) start with a caveat.
