“It has come to my attention that some folks are getting harassed by some fans for not liking Aquaman. Please don’t do that. Not the kind of support I want. Be respectful,” Wan tweeted.
On the flip side, Wan also reminded fans who didn’t likethat he isn’t interested in being attacked as a result.
“Vice versa, it’s OK to not like my film, but there’s no need to attack me personally, or tag me on hates,” Wan added.
