The Mayor of Austin Personally Shut Down a Sexist Troll Upset About Those Women-Only 'Wonder Woman' Screenings

This email 😂😂😂

When the iconic Alamo Drafthouse theater in Austin, TX, announced plans for a women-only screening of Wonder Woman, some men on the internet were not happy. The theater responded to the "controversy" perfectly—by adding a second women-only screening of the film to its schedule. 

One particularly outraged man of the internet, Richard A. Ameduri, wrote to the Mayor of Austin, Steve Adler, to express just how upset he was:

Adler replied, expertly, and posted both the original letter and his response on [link href='' target='_blank' 0='data-tracking-id="recirc-text-link"' link_updater_label='external']his website


The letters have gone viral, naturally.

Mayor Adler handled the situation perfectly and, so far, there's no word on a reply from Ameduri.
