Simpsons Writer Leaves Show In Twitter Huff

Simpsons writer/producer Marc Wilmore announced his departure from the show in a strange series of tweets.

Previously a writer/performer on In Loving Color and The PJs, Wilmore joined The Simpsons in 2000. He was the sole black writer to have been part of the show's writing staff (Michael Carrington, who co-wrote "Homer's Triple Bypass" and voiced Sideshow Raheem, wasn't technically part of the staff).

On Thursday and Friday, he tweeted self-deprecating jokes about his newfound unemployment and suggestions the parting was less than amicable. It's most certainly all part of a comedy bit, but... what if it wasn't...?!?

Judge for yourself...
