Dr. Strange Director: ‘American Christians’ Are ‘Racist,’ ‘Greedy’

Director Scott Derrickson has a funny way of ringing in a national holiday.

Derrickson’s resume includes a number of respected films including The Exorcism of Emily Rose (2005) and Sinister (2012). That changed when he co-wrote and directed the 2016 smash Doctor Strange. The MCU entry shook up the superhero formula just enough to score big with critics and fans alike.

That catapulted him into the big leagues, and deservedly so. He might have lost some admirers over the holidays all the same.

Derrickson fired off the following Tweet on Thanksgiving Day.



One Christian defended his faith with facts, saying American Christians give more to charities than their secular peers. Derrickson’s response doubled down in dubious fashion.



Other Twitter responders fired back, too. Here’s just one example:
