He also said that the elements he added in the Star Wars: Aftermath series weren't received well by a lot of fans and the LGBT substance that he included through his writings got backfired and exploded in Internet beginning a hate campaign on him.

Here's the content of the full thread of Wendig's tweets tonight.

Just one week after Marvel announced the upcoming Shadow of Vader Star Wars comic at NYCC 2018, writer Chuck Wendig has been removed from the project. Since the book's release, the harassment levied at Wendig has only intensified.

IGN reached out to Marvel, who had no comment on Wendig's statements, but confirmed the company has parted ways with him.

No new writer for Star Wars: Shadow of Vader has been named.

This also comes hot off the heels of Marvel's other high profile instance of caving to people who voted for someone now detaining children for being immigrants, in which they fired Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn over offensive tweets made over a decade ago, a decision that has been widely regarded as unfair and stupid as best, pissing off Dave Bautista to such a degree that he may actually reveal himself to be the real life Hulk at any moment.

A number of people even began mocking Making Star Wars. And privately, I was told by folks inside LFL that there was no worry here, that they valued that I spoke out both speaking up for myself and for STAR WARS, which has always honestly been a progressive brand and company.

EW.com actually reports Chuck Wendig wasn't fired for his political views, but for his use of profanity and vulgarity. Do you think they will stop covering Star Wars comics as well?

"This is really quite chilling", Wendig concluded on Twitter. I am very sad, and anxious for the country I live in, and the world, and for creative people all around. I have a dire fear this is going to get a whole lot worse before it gets better.P.S. Vote in November like your life depends on it.
