His lack of sleep over stupid bullshit can't be good for his heart. Good for us though, because the sooner this fat pile of shit drops dead, the better
He's a fat fuck with a shit diet who likes to reee about shit. Nothing he does is good for his heart.

My dear Watson, this could have been my hardest case to this day! Thankfully my powers of deduction were on point so I could find the truth!
Who could have predicted that would be the reason?!

Also, enjoy paying for this garbage, American taxpayer, you earned it.

Yes but add 'not sleeping' to all that shit you mentioned and he'll be lucky to live another five years

Pretty sure this just means that Warner Bros don't have to pay tax on what they spent to make the movie, not that the taxpayer pays for it instead

It's owed tax they get to scam off their books into not paying, which ultimately means the average taxpayer has to pay for it instead.

But that's tax money they wouldn't have paid anyway, so it doesn't make a damn bit of difference. The tax rate in Commiefornia is still going to be absurdly high whether or not Warner Bros actually pays its share

If the wouldn't pay, it would become a tax debt and the government could seize assets and jail people for it. As a tax write-off, they don't owe anything, but the government still want that money from somewhere - aka, fleecing the middle class, which is the only branch of society that actually both pays taxes and can't write anything off most of the time .

So Twitter tards are trying to find proof that the CEO David Zaslav is a transphobic, racist, Nazi. Because that's surely the ONLY reason why he cancelled this movie.

There's a Variety article that reports that he "told friends" that he wanted to hire the best people for jobs at WB and not focus on diversity. Also, he's apparently a Trump supporter, according to this quote that's come out of nowhere and being spread around now.

You're not understanding. My point is that they do shit like this - write stuff off - all the time. The fact that they've written this one particular project off makes absolutely no difference to the tax deficit because these large corporations are often free with their creative accounting and almost never pay what they're supposed to anyway. Star Wars, the original Star Wars, has never made a profit and, if Warner Bros are to be believed, the last Harry Potter movie actually lost them money

Oh, sure, Hollywood Accounting is a thing, after all. I get that. My point is that, since the government won't get the money from these poor, unprofitable, almost charitable corporations, they compensate by tax hiking the middle class, who is defenseless due to the inability to make these sort of legal accounting shenanigans. Little difference from First State taxing the poor while paying almost nothing themselves in pre-Revolution France, to be honest.
