Someone should tell this asshole to stop repeating that shit like a braindead parrot. It's annoying, and borderline disrespectful.
It sounds like JJ Abrams is trying to be respectful, by keeping Star Trek alive for everybody, including fans. He made one very entertaining ST movie, and we'll see in a few months what his crew came up with next.
He didn't come out and say anything like: "Someone should tell fans...(fill in the blank about any stonewalling fan sentiment and discourse)", and he was respectful in the sense that he didn't call the fans a bunch of assholes, which is pretty would be pretty extreme talk when throwing around the word "respect".
