Fanboy Rampage No More? Gail Simone and Rob Schneider Broker Historic Peace

In a shining example that the rest of the world can hopefully follow suit, Gail Simone and Rob Schneider have ended their blood feud over whether or not Tim Hortons is the Rob Schneider of donut shops. It was Schneider who made the first move, tweeting a public apology to Simone.

And Simone accepted the apology, calling for a cessation of hostilities on the part of her forces, who had been retaliating against Schneider for siccing his own fans on Simone.

And already, the spirit of peace is spreading throughout the realm.

The calm marks the first time tensions have been so low since Simone tweeted that Canadian donut chain Tim Hortons was the Rob Schneider of donut shops on Saturday, prompting Schneider to post a screenshot of Simone's tweet and direct his followers to attack Simone.

As tempers flared, Twitter was on the brink of war, but it seems that cooler heads have prevailed, with the two parties setting aside their differences and agreeing to peacefully coexist, with Simone downplaying the hostilities as "no biggie."

At press time, however, Tim Hortons was reportedly looking toward strengthening ties with its heavily-armed allies as a precaution against the conflict flaring up once again and dragging the donut chain down with it.

Fanboy Rampage was a blog by Graeme "Graham" McMillan dedicated to the funniest, most ludicrous and most inappropriate comic book back-and-forths online. McMillan has moved on now, becoming a proper journalist for the likes of The Hollywood Reporter and Wired but he gave permission to Bleeding Cool, the Rob Schneider of comic book websites, to revive his great creation.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
