Andrew Goldman Sparks Twitter Controversy in Response to Jennifer Weiner

Over the weekend, novelist Jennifer Weiner wrote on Twitter: “Saturday am. Iced coffee. NYT mag. See which actress Andrew Goldman has accused of sleeping her way to the top. #traditionsicoulddowithout,” criticizing writer Andrew Goldman‘s work in the “Talk” interview column at The New York Times Magazine.

Goldman responded directly to the novelist with this tweet: “sensing pattern. Little Freud in me thinks you would have liked at least to have had opportunity to sleep way to top.” Goldman later characterized his tweet as “absurd,” saying that it was written in the style of comedian Andrew Dice Clay.

UPDATE: Goldman’s account is no longer listed on Twitter. However, he wrote an apology on Twitter later in the day. Weiner accepted his apology and shared it with her readers. The remark generated responses from Gimme Shelter author Mary Beth Williams and New Yorker TV critic Emily Nussbaum. We’ve embedded the complete exchange in a Storify post below (CONTAINS NSFW LANGUAGE)–what do you think?
