Following last week’s Twitter brouhaha, Andrew Goldman will not be writing for the Times Magazine for the next month.
“In light of his recent comments on Twitter, Andrew will not be contributing the Talk column to the Magazine for four weeks, beginning Oct. 28. He’ll be back with the column after that,” said Hugo Lindgren, editor of The New York Times Magazine through a spokesperson.
Anyone who has been paying attention to Bret Easton Ellis’ Twitter account this summer knows the American Psycho author has had his sights set on writing an adaptation of the world’s most popular book, EL James’ 50 Shades of Grey. He was already dream-casting the project to include Lindsay Lohan, or possibly Lena Dunham!
But after the news that TV scribe Kelly Marcel (Terra Nova) would be doing the 50 Shades of Grey script, Mr. Ellis went on a wee rampage against the upcoming film.
