It's so rude and I love it.

We all love Jessica Jones because she's a character that takes no sh!t and says exactly what we're all thinking. And the people running the show's official Twitter account are taking their cues from Jessica's bamf attitude.
*warning for grown-up (or maybe immature is a better word) language*
Someone's gonna need burn cream.
Just in case anyone was wondering: This show is not a male-centric sexual fantasy.
"Girl power bullshit".

I wonder what would happen if we all started calling the other 90% of superhero media "man power bullshit"?

So flattering. NOT.
Turns out women don't like it when you insult them. FASCINATING.
I can feel this Twitter account's judgement from here.
@ journalists: If the answer to your article can be summed up as either 'yes' or 'no', it's not worth writing.
Everyone's entitled to their opinion. What they're not entitled to is freedom from mockery if their opinion is unnecessary.

True that Jessica!

They even went in on the Deadpool movie! (Sidebar: remember how much crap Nicki Minaj got for talking about what makes HER happy in bed? Guess it's cool when a guy does it...)

For anyone wondering 'is this the real life' ^^^

Yup. This is the world we're living in and it feels good to be alive.

@kneelb4zod @ThePervySage true, and to be fair it wasn't really *for* guys. Which is not to say that guys can't/won't like it (obv y'all do haha) but it's sort of the same as like, Iron Man not really being *for* women. Lots of women love him and love the movies (hello!) but does that distinction make sense? Some of those complaints seem a little uncalled-for though, especially when there's 3 Iron Man movies and only 1 JJ (for now.......)

I blame Hollywood for not being able to represent women and minorities so when a show like Jessica Jones shows up, some of us are not used to that depiction of women and we go CRAZY

@kneelb4zod definitely. There are very few female execs, producers, casting directors, it trickles down to the writers, directors, and actors. Same goes for people who are nonwhite, all sorts of marginalized identities. It's changing slowly because those execs know there's money to be made with more diverse shows, but it's taking a long time because the people at the top haven't changed

I think it has more to do with they were expecting Daredevil, and they got Law and Order: SVU. Now as much as I liked Jessica Jones, it is flawed. It did get boring and it dragged at times. There were parts where it could have used better writing and pacing, and I think that would have pacified some of the critics. And some people aren't going to like it. My friend's husband is someone who you would think wouldn't like Girls. He loves the show. I can't stay it and I'm giddy that this is the last season. On the flip side, I loved me some Sex and the City and Orange is the New Black. And don't let me start talking about General Hospital, One Life to Live and All My Children. And believe me, a lot of men watched soap operas. Bur it's all about how you write it, and Jessica Jones didn't do enough to keep everyone engaged.
