When it was first announced that Paul Feig would be directing a reboot of Ghostbusters starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones, the internet responded with the grace and sophistication you’ve come to expect. Basically it was just a whole lot of “Ew! Girl parts!” and whatnot. Reboot fatigue is one thing, but the reaction to this movie took things in a very unpleasant direction. Shame on you, internet.

Last night, director Paul Feig decided he’d had enough. Or perhaps he had too much, given that he’s apparently on vacation and was a little buzzed. Either way, he took to Twitter to respond to some of the more vocal idiots and, well, it was awesome. Check it out below.

Ghostbusters stars Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, and Leslie Jones. Directed by Paul Feig, it’s set for release on July 15, 2016.
