The Daily Mail published a story late Friday about the SXSW panel for the upcoming Amazon Prime miniseries 'Good Omens', based on Neil Gaiman's book of the same name.
Gaiman acted as showrunner for the one-off series, in which David Tennant and Michael Sheen star as a demon and an angel out to sabotage the coming End of Times. Gaiman, Tennant and Sheen were all present at the panel, along with Jon Hamm, who plays God.
Gaiman took to his twitter account (on which he is very active) to blast the Mail's typically stellar journalism. The anonymous Mail writer focused almost exclusively on the outfits worn by the four men in an article which was full of grammatical errors and mistakenly identified the panel as a premiere.
Completely bizarre Daily Mail article, possibly written by something not human, like an elk. My favourite line is, "Good Omens is based on a fictional book of the same name."https://t.co/ofwJX6Pgzr— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) March 16, 2019
"Men of the hour: Joining the Mad Men actor was co-stars Michael Sheen, 50 and David Tennant, 47"— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) March 16, 2019

Also, it's "poke fun at". You can't "poke fun of". I was a journalist, long ago. We had standards. https://t.co/2RU6MAJNtW— Neil Gaiman (@neilhimself) March 16, 2019
