“Today I got the call,” Wendig told his audience. “I’m fired.”
“Because of the negativity and vulgarity that my tweets bring. Seriously, that’s what Mark, the editor said. It was too much politics, too much vulgarity, too much negativity on my part.”
“Basically, because I was not civil,” he noted ironically.
In one fiery tweet posted in June, Wendig tossed 8 f-bombs at Republicans over the reporting about child separations at the border. He specifically wrote, “F**k civility.”
“F**k’ em,” Wendig tweeted. “F**k Trump. F**k the GOP. F**k ICE. F**k the whole lot of’em. F**k’em up the flagpole and down the road, in and out of every restaurant, twice on Sundays and thrice on Tuesdays.”
