TV Writer Kevin Williamson Called A TV Critic An "Idiot" And A "Loser" On Twitter, And It Was Strange

Dawson Leery's daddy lost it on Twitter on Friday!

This is Kevin Williamson. He created Dawson's Creek and The Following, wrote the Scream movies, and is an executive producer of The Vampire Diaries.

This fall, his new show Stalker will premiere on CBS. He and its stars appeared on Thursday at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills. Some TV critics have already said they feel Stalker is exploitative.

But this was the end of that exchange.

Williamson's real foe was Todd VanDerWerff, late of AV Club, newly of Vox. Todd tweeted his criticisms throughout the Stalker panel — and Williamson decided to respond belatedly to each tweet.

Rapprochement?

Has waging a Twitter war ever left anyone feeling good? Probably not.

I can't even wage a twitter war. I'm a loser.

You do end up thinking about what you love in your life.

Especially because it happened in front of everyone.
