Film blogger quote can also apply to poetry/literature communities.

Some context first: Lynne Ramsay, best known for directing the disturbing-in-a-necessary-way school-shooting film WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT KEVIN, was hired to direct a Western starring Natalie Portman called JANE GOT A GUN.  Ms. Ramsay didn't show up for the start of JANE's filming and the bird-wings of film/media online gossip sites have fluttered. 

Here's an intelligent quote from online film writer Devin Faraci, recently posted to Twitter:
"Lynne Ramsay thing reinforces how often people jump to support authority figures, corporations, money people over individuals and creatives."
