Bill Maher takes a dig at Stan Lee and the Comic Industry

On his blog late Friday evening, late night comedy personality Bill Maher for some unimaginable reason decided to insult Stan Lee and the comic industry as a whole-

The two pieces of his blog that really stick out to me are:

“America is in mourning. Deep, deep mourning for a man who inspired millions to, I don’t know, watch a movie, I guess.”


“The problem is, we’re using our smarts on stupid stuff. I don’t think it’s a huge stretch to suggest that Donald Trump could only get elected in a country that thinks comic books are important.”

Oh Bill…    you sweet sweet ignorant man.

While much of the comic community is up in arms at his comments, (much of my social media feed this morning is variations of, “Fuck Bill Maher”), I’m taking a slightly different approach to my reaction here and I believe it’s simply a matter of Mr. Maher being stuck with a very conservative out dated mindset, and he needs some education-

As I say in my video response, “It is an incredible parallel to, lets say, someone who thinks that you need a photo I.D. to buy cereal. It’s simply not being aware of reality and what’s going on because you are stuck in your own little box.”
