Eh... that's a stretch to reach for an insult. Fact of the matter is the vast majority of people aren't going to read a book these days when they can stare at a computer or tv screen. It's just the way it is.
Not really. It's basically saying "I'll never read your stuff cause it doesn't matter, it's not important." It's the dismissive attitude towards the works and by extension the authors that's offensive; treating it's somehow lesser quality cause it doesn't fit into some (largely already contradictory) canonical structure.
Again, I'll say you're reaching to be insulted by that as that's not what he said. All he said is he was he doesn't read the books since they're not canon. Everything else, are conclusions you're drawing.
There's a difference between: "I only watch the show (movie) I don't read the books" and "I don't read the books cause they're not worth the effort cause their not canon".

The former is simply a statement of preference, the latter is a judgement that since they're not canon they don't matter anyway so they are worthless to the franchise.

You call it reaching, I call it an insult. We'r not going to agree on it.
