Pegg wasn't cursing at fans who were mean to him or anyone associated with STD on Twitter. (Oh, woes! People are being mean on the Internet! ) He was saying "F--- you!" because of a poll taken at a Star Trek convention where only 100 fans attending a panel discussion debated where to rank the film. This wasn't some huge, earth-shattering dis from all fans of the original series. It was just a small group of people at a con having fun ranking movies as they saw fit. It's wrong to lump them in with people who trolled Lindelof or any other group he believes deserves to be cursed at because of their opinions of STD. Pegg reportedly works in the entertainment industry so he should have thicker skin than that, not to mention more professionalism.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
