John Green Defends Himself Against Death Threats

After John Green received a barrage of hate, he clarifies, “I am not a casting director. Please stop threatening to kill me.”

Don't kill me!

John also reveals that he has zero idea who “Acacia” is.

No idea who!

He also claims that he has no power whatsoever over the casting.

Hundred people audition.

Some fans didn’t know what he was talking about, and accused him of subtweeting Cara Delevingne or Shailene Woodley – but he rejected that.

Not a subtweet.

He then reveals a bombshell – that the movie might not ever happen at all.

Hasn't happened yet.

He also backed a fan who wanted a woman of color to play the starring role.

Support that!
