Well, it was inevitable. Now that the Breaking Bad finale has aired couch critics are taking to Twitter to voice their opinions. Did Vince Gilligan create the greatest television series of all-time? Did the Breaking Bad finale top The Sopranos? Lost?
I’m not here to make those judgments. I’m here to laugh at Damen Lindelof.
The creator of Lost has been receiving hundreds of messages from people who are still upset about how the show ended.
@DamonLindelof how do worthless fuckheads like you get hired when there are people with actual talent like Vince Gilligan around?

Under normal circumstances, I’d have to scour the internet to find all of the “I Hate Damen Lindelof” tweets but the Lost writer has done most of the work for me. In fact, if you’re looking for a celebrity retweet today, you might want to send some sort of insult in Lindelof’s direction.
I really like @DamonLindelof but dude, i’d be crushed after that final scene in breaking bad, they practically laughed at your face. — Divad (@ldavs) September 30, 2013
The Breaking Bad finale wasn’t universally loved but most people thought that the final episode was a satisfying conclusion. Most of the story lines were completed and Walter White met his fate. That really can’t be said for Lost and Lindelof knows that. His Twitter bio reads: “Yeah, I’m one of the idiots behind LOST. And no, I don’t understand it either.”
Hey @DamonLindelof THATS how you do a series finale. Not whatever the hell that crap was you did with #Lost. #GoodbyeBreakingBad — Pat Egan (@Pat_Egan) September 30, 2013
Hey @DamonLindelof, that’s how you answer all the questions and close all the loose ends. #asshole #GoodbyeBreakingBad — Danilo Americano (@DaniloEddy) September 30, 2013
Lindelof may be the butt of the joke today but he has to be a little flattered. I mean, it’s been three years since Lost ended and people are still furious about the ending. That’s a pretty impressive feat.
@DamonLindelof got this text from my buddy just minutes after the #BreakingBadFinale, thought you’d appreciate it. pic.twitter.com/gkBhhFIBEu
