Outspoken Showrunner Bails Out on Twitter

Aug 15, 2011  •  Post A Comment

Kurt Sutter, the creator of FX’s hit "Sons of Anarchy," has decided to quit Twitter, claiming, "I’m a guy desperately in need of buffers," according to his blog, sutterink.blogspot.com.

An outspoken and sometimes controversial artist, Sutter asserted that he has no regrets over anything he has tweeted in the past.

"No one chased me away except me,” Sutter said of his decision to bail out on Twitter. “Yes, the lazy blogosphere has given up on journalism and now trolls Twitter for their on-the-record in-depth articles. Yes, the hate outweighs the love. But my deactivation was pretty much self-preservation. Eventually, I would have said something that got me or someone else buried in a suffocating pile of irrevocable toxic man shit."

Ending with a gag, Sutter suggested, "Maybe I should get a radio show. NPR, Sirius, what d’ya think? Kurt Sutter’s Happy Hour?"

Sutter recently tweeted his observations about why Frank Darabont was fired by AMC as showrunner of “The Walking Dead,” as reported previously. Sutter’s tweets blamed the financial demands of “Mad Men” creator Matthew Weiner for hurting other good shows such as “Walking Dead” and “Breaking Bad.”
