Fan Drives 'Star Trek Into Darkness' Writer Bob Orci To Swearing

Here’s the crux of this story: it’s funny when people who shouldn’t really be swearing, swear. Bob Orci – the writer behind the Star Trek sequel, Into Darkess, told a fan to “F*ck off” on a comment section for an article entitled: Star Trek Is Broken: Here Are Ideas On How to Fix It.

This begs the question: why oh why did he even bother clicking on it? “I think the article above is akin to a child acting out against his parents. Makes it tough for some to listen, but since I am a loving parent, I read these comments without anger or resentment, no matter how misguided,” began Orci, clearly peeved that some fans might not like his work.

“Having said that, two biggest Star Treks in a row hard for me to listen to what might otherwise be decent notions to pursue in the future. As I love to say, there is a reason why I get to write the movies, and you don’t. Respect all opinions, always, nonetheless.”

Okay, now we’re getting to something juicy. And here it is:

“Shi**y Dodge. STID has infinitely more social commentary than Raiders in every Universe, and I say that with Harrison Ford being a friend. You lose credibility big time when you don’t honestly engage with the F***ING WRITER OF THE MOVIE ASKING YOU AN HONEST QUESTION. You prove the cliche of shitty fans. And rude in the process. So, as Simon Pegg would say: F*CK OFF!"

So there you have it: Star Trek writer tells keyboard bashing geek to “f*ck off
