Indiana Jones 5 director James Mangold recently lied about his June temper tantrum and his attack on fans.
If you recall Mangold responded to Twitter user and YouTuber Matthew Kadish who posted his concerns about Indiana Jones 5 to Twitter.
Kadish wrote, “To anyone thinking Indiana Jones 5 might be good, just let me point out… 1. Steven Spielberg is not directing. 2. Kathleen Kennedy is producing. 3. Harrison Ford is 78 years old. 4. It’s written by Jonathan Kasdan, who wrote SOLO.”
Mangold directly responded to Kadish writing, “Thanks, Matt! 1) Keep making the world a better place crapping on things in the 1st week of production from your basement. 2) Never seen a script by Jon. Nothing against him. Just reality. Butterworths & I started from a blank page. 3) 1-3 r hugely talented & all at my side.”
Mangold would also describe Kadish as a “click baiter” and “night crawler.”
He wrote, “Thanks, Ax. I don’t mind people griping & prognosticating. But, on my watch, false info, agism & snark from so-called ‘journalists’ is gonna be confronted directly & forcefully.”
“IMO, these click baiters like to dish it out, but like night crawlers, can’t stand the light,” he added.
Now, Mangold is denying that he claimed Kadish lived in a basement in response to Twitter user Vebent’s own misgivings about Indiana Jones 5 from June.
Vebent wrote, “Except James Mangold comment on people criticizing him living in basements, I’m holding judgement on this Indy movie.”
He added, “The last one was a disappointment. Solo was a disappointment, but for all we know this may be a turn around for the franchise and the director.”
Mangold responded just a couple of days ago by denying he said his critics lived in basements.
He wrote, “Um. I never said “people who criticize me live in basements”. People criticize me all the time and don’t get such comments.”
Mangold added, “I think you know what caused me to reply to the specific click baiters the way I did. And I have said I am sorry if, in my anger, I spoke too broadly.”
Mangold also never really apologized, although he did seem conciliatory back in June when he wrote, “Someone replied u to my address. U should be able to vent, Matt. I thought you were a pro blogger. To me there’s a difference between fans &people with ‘shows’. Next time I will try to hear you out and just correct the facts.”
Kadish reacted to Mangold’s spin on Twitter.
He wrote, “First thing Mangold said to me was that I was a basement dweller.”
YouTuber Ryan Kinel also reacted to Mangold’s lies saying, “James Mangold, no. You did not apologize for what you said. You are lying about that. And you are also trying to spin this. No, nobody said that you called all of your critics basement dwellers.”
“What happened was someone criticized you, and your first response was, ‘Wow! Enjoy commenting on this from your basement. Lolololol.”
What do you make of Mangold lying about his comments back in June?
