Famous British musician and the lead singer of The Specials, Terry Hall, recently passed away on December 18, 2022, and his fans are absolutely wrecked, with DC Studios’ head being one of them. Following the demise of the artist, James Gunn took to Twitter to express his grief with regard to the same as he paid a heartfelt tribute to the late singer.

The Guardians of the Galaxy filmmaker is already toppled with an endless heap of problems at DC -the uglier side of being a co-CEO – and now with the news of one of his idols passing away, he is all the more crestfallen. But it looks like DC fans couldn’t care less about his sorrow as they don’t cease to bash him even under such circumstances.

Terry Hall, the lead artist of the English 2 tone and ska revival band called The Specials, died at the age of 63 “following a brief illness,” as per the band’s official Facebook account. And the co-chief of DC Studios is devasted by this shocking loss. James Gunn shared the news of Hall’s unfortunate death via Twitter as he mentioned how The Specials had been “an important part” of his “youth.”

The Specials was formed in 1977 in Coventry, England, and became pretty successful during the late ’70s and ’80s. Hall wasn’t only the band’s lead singer but was also recognized as one of the most talented singers and songwriters.

But as Gunn mourns the loss of such an amazing and valuable artist, furious DC fans are busy bashing him in the comment section of his Twitter post about Hall’s tragic demise.

It looks like the Peacemaker director won’t be catching a break anytime soon.

Gunn, 56, recently received immense backlash following the decisions he and Peter Safran have been making with regard to DCU’s future, and fans have been rendered infuriated ever since. Something which is quite conspicuous from the way people are implacable in their rage towards the filmmaker.

When Gunn shared a tweet lamenting the death of Hall, enraged DC fans filled the comment section of the post with more merciless attacks toward the DC head as they called him out for removing Henry Cavill as Superman from the superhero franchise. While some are outright thrashing him in their comments, others seem to be demanding clear-cut answers from The Suicide Squad director. And then there are a few handfuls who are berating the former for being utterly disrespectful not only toward Gunn who is in mourning but also toward the deceased as well.

Many people in the comment section are also joining Gunn in paying homage to The Specials’ late singer. It’s good to see not everyone is blinded by their fury and can set apart their emotions during times like these.
