Bill Maher may have met Kevin Smith – and to a greater extent – comic fans everywhere – during his recent chatter about the deaths of Stan Lee and the answer, but Kevin Smith takes to the streets.
Last night on Real Time with Bill Maher about HBO, Maher doubled his controversial setting of comic books and Stan Lee's death. In November, Maher wrote in a blog commenting on how comic books were intended for children, something that he once again gave in, and compares the enjoyment of comic books and related media ̵
He chose filmmaker Kevin Smith, who is not just a comic superfan, but has written several comic books. The attack on Smith focused particularly on Smith's signature style of special jersey, but Smith? In a response to Twitter on Saturday, he's the taller man, even with a sly twist.
Yes, @billmaher met me during his show last night in the middle of London His latest saying about @TheRealStanLee and adults who like comic books. No, I'm not mad at all. Bill likes to talk tough, but he's a stoner like me and a real pussycat when confronted: //t.co/LRNdNeI2vr pic.twitter.com/VEf3fYi3b4

"Yes, @billmaher shot me during his show last night while listening to his recent shouts about @TheRealStanLee and adults who like comic books," Smith wrote. Bill likes to talk hard, but he's a stoner like me and a real pussy cat when confronted. "
Smith's Tweet contained a link to a clip from an episode of Maher's Show Smith a few years ago, but the video itself was about smashing Smith Maher with a specific and intimate body part for crap which Maher had given him years ago about his "flying and fat" issue.
Why did Maher take certain pictures? Smith's last night, this refers to Smith's reaction to Maher's original editorial. After Maher wrote his controversial essay, Smith talked about it in his Hollywood Babble-On podcast .
"Only one shot if no shots are needed," Smith said. "And like that guy, he did so much for this world, he put so many smiles on people's faces, he has ideas, he made kids feel part of something, he made adults do it He was all in all he was good, he was cute, he was nice, all you ever heard was negative, frankly, it was f-ckin's horseshoes, He was a great man, I & # 39; ll miss him all my days. "
It will be interesting to see if Maher has any further comments on the situation after Smith has responded. After all, Maher is no stranger in the center of the controversy. His comments on the September 11 terrorist attacks meant that ABC did not want to renew his show at the time, calling himself a "peddler" in his HBO show last year. As for Stan Lee's situation, Maher had previously attempted to control Larry King Now damage control, although he ultimately adhered to his criticism.
"But talk about what I want to say to myself: Yeah, I do not know much about Stan Lee and it certainly was not a big hit with Stan Lee, yeah, well, I do not care about Stan Lee," Maher said "I do not read comic books. I do not have any. I even read it as a child. What I said is a culture that thinks that comic books and comic books are deep meditations on human condition, is a stupid F-Cking culture, and that people just turn sour proves my point.
