Kurt Sutter Calls Out Matthew Weiner, AMC

by at . Comments

Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter is never one to withhold his opinion. Remember what he Tweeted about his show's Emmy snubs? Hilarious stuff.

Now, the former Shield scribe and the actor behind Otto on SoA is at it again.

In response to the ongoing issues at AMC - Matthew Weiner's contract negotiations extended for so long that season five of Mad Men was delayed until 2012, while Frank Darabont was surprisingly let go from The Walking Dead and there are rumors that Breaking Bad may jump to a new network - Sutter wrote last night:

Will Weiner respond? It's no small accusation to blame one series creator for getting another fired. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: Sutter has added: i don't know MW, got no beef with him. just hate that darabont is being demonized. no one has the balls to tell the truth. MM gutted AMC.

Wasn't it the other day that Sutter had a beef with Frank Darabont and now he's calling out Matt Weiner. Somebody needs to tell Sutter to pick his battles b/c while it's nice to be able to say what you want, i have a feeling that someone will bite back and that's when the real fun starts.

@Concerned: I'm sure teenagers have said and heard far worse words at school. WHATEVER! Anyway, It's not hard to see why AMC gave into Wiener, seeing as how Mad Men is pretty much AMC's meal-ticket for the most part. I mean they do get the most awards buzz every season, even if I think Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead are ten times better. Don't get me wrong though, I do still like Mad Men, but it's not the best show on television contrary to popular belief of all the old timers doing the voting.

That's what you're complaining about? Have you seen the ads that silenty echo the "sex sells" idea? I think it's a bit much myself, and I don't visit here from work internet as often but it's not up to me.

@Concerned: I understand your concern, but this is a Tweet that has already gone out to thousands and thousands of people. It's also posted under the Sons of Anarchy section, and if any teenager is coming here for info on that series, there's a good chance he or she is already familiar with curse words.

Really?! Could you not block out crude words TVFANATIC? Teenagers do come on this site...

Sons of Anarchy Quotes

Something happens at around 92 miles an hour - thunder-headers drown out all sound, engine vibrations travels at a heart's rate, field of vision funnels into the immediate and suddenly you're not on the road, you're in it. A part of it. Traffic, scenery, cops - just cardboard cutouts blowing over as you past. Sometimes I forget the rush of that. That's why I love these long runs. All your problems, all the noise, gone. Nothing else to worry about except what's right in front of you. Maybe that's the lesson for me today, to hold on to these simple moments. Appreciate them a little more - there's not many of them left. I don't ever want that for you. Finding things that make you happy shouldn't be so hard. I know you'll face pain, suffering, hard choices, but you can't let the weight of it choke the joy out of your life. No matter what, you have to find the things that love you. Run to them. There's an old saying, 'That what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger' I don't believe that. I think the things that try to kill you make you angry and sad. Strength comes from the good things - your family, your friends, the satisfaction of hard work. Those are the things that'll keep you whole. Those are the things to hold on to when you're broken.

We don't know who we are until we're connected to someone else. We're just better human beings when with the person we're supposed to be with. I wasn't supposed to leave...I belong here.
