With over 1.7 million followers on Instagram, Adam Ellis, aka Adamtots, is one of the most widely-recognized webcomic artists out there. Recently, the artist got into a feud with filmmakers Andrew Butler and James Wilson, who shamelessly ripped of the idea of one of his comics and turned it into a movie without even giving him proper credit. Adam decided not to remain silent and took this whole ordeal to social media, where he quickly gained support from thousands of fans.

In one of his recent Tweets, Adam explained how the filmmakers plagiarized his comic shot-for-shot for their movie Keratin, and even gave some examples that really drive the point home. Turns out that the filmmakers had contacted him in the past and asked him to promote the film. Adam, of course, did not approve of the idea but that didn’t seem to stop the filmmakers – they simply decided to ghost him and released the movie anyway. Both Butler and Wilson have now shut down their social media accounts, making it impossible to reach them.

See how the whole situation unfolded below!
