Who has gone on to apologize for his reaction
Spend 4 years hearing the same entitlement mindset garbage from the vocal members of the fanbase, some of it bordering on abusive, a good portion the sort of stuff that would get a person kicked from a messageboard on most counts, and see what mood you're in at the end of the day. The overreaction to this just reeks of some of the fanbase being mad that the hired help back talked them.
Not saying he couldn't have worded better, but he had every right snap back at the people snapping at him. Hell, I applaud him for both standing up for his production and having the balls to apologize.
