Ghostbusters reboot director Paul Feig is back at it -- cussing at the internet fans.

Feig previously told Ghostbusters reboot "trolls" to go f' themselves, and now offers more.

"Geek culture is home to some of the biggest a-holes I've ever met in my life," Feig told the Daily News. "Especially after being attacked by them for months because of this 'Ghostbusters' project."

Feig is probably also upset by the fact that the Ghostbusters reboot trailer is the most disliked movie trailer on the internet ever. Even Melissa McCarthy wasn't a fan.

I'll also add, in defense of the "trolls," that a lot of fans are simply upset by fact that the original Ghostbusters movie is getting remade and their beloved characters replaced, not just because the reboot features females.

It will be interesting to see how well or not the movie performs at the box office this Summer, something which Feig can thank the internet fans for, eh?

"Ghostbusters" has a July 15 2016 release directed by Paul Feig also starring Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, Charles Dance and Michael Kenneth Williams.

Synopsis:

Ghostbusters makes its long-awaited return, rebooted with a cast of hilarious new characters. Thirty years after the beloved original franchise took the world by storm, director Paul Feig brings his fresh take to the supernatural comedy, joined by some of the funniest actors working today – Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Chris Hemsworth. This summer, they’re here to save the world!
