I really, really hate to post anything from the parasites of TMZ.com, but I figured it was worth to inform you that James Cameron is not at all grateful to his fans for Avatar‘s success or… anything, really. The above video captures a fan asking Cameron to sign his Avatar poster, to which Cameron says: ? “I don’t owe you a fucking signature.” ? “Just get out of my fucking personal space.” The fan, rather astutely I feel, replies: ? “I’m an asshole because I ask someone I admire for their autograph that
makes me an asshole? I make $15-an-hour at work to go see your film and
I’m an asshole?” And then director James Cameron just walks away. Awesome. Maybe Cameron can use some of Avatar’s $600 million to buy a fucking Miss Manners book. Thanks to Carla for the tip.
Robert Bricken is one of the original co-founders of the site formerly known as Topless Robot, and its first editor-in-chief, serving from 2008-12. He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
