Ever since the show was unceremoniously cancelled, John Bickerstaff has been all over social media making lots of noise about how unfair it is. First, he tried to make out that Willow wasn’t really cancelled. When Disney announced that Willow was to be pulled off the Disney+ streaming service after just six months, the noise reached a fever pitch, with the industry being decried as cruel.
Demonstrating further inability to take it on the chin, or indeed to take any kind of criticism, another outburst has followed a negative headline in Forbes that reminded readers:
“It’s Your Last Chance To See How Bad The New Disney+ ‘Willow’ Show Is Before It’s Gone For Good”
Bickerstaff was forthright in his response.

Such is life. At least the responses are worth their weight in comedy gold:
