Comedian Patton Oswalt took a break from nasty, gay-baiting tweets to have Blume’s back.

Hey, @delta airlines? You do NOT close your doors on @judyblume. You just incurred the wrath of her Awkward Former Teen Army. #deltafail

WHAT THE FACK DELTA you can’t just close the doors on @judyblume. A very small demographic of twitter users are real real angry right now

— Emma G. (@ManetOlympia) October 15, 2012

And they are not going to take it anymore! You won’t like SuperFudge when he’s angry! Even “Chewbacca” gets into the mix.
