If there is one actor who never shies away from saying what he feels, irrespective of the consequences, it is Ryan Reynolds. In the past, the Deadpool actor has also made statements that raised some eyebrows, but that did not stop Reynolds. From pranking his co-actors to trolling his wife online, Ryan has done it all. Despite making various comments and statements that might be a little controversial, Ryan has never taken his words back until now.
Recently, an American businessman Michael Eisner praised the docuseries based on the Welsh football team, Wrexham Association Football Club, featuring both the owners of the club, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney. Instead of thanking him, Ryan decided to tweet a witty reply but soon after decided not to. But why did he stop midway?
Ryan Reynolds gives a witty reply to a business owner, only to regret it later
In recent times, Ryan Reynolds has become a target for all media houses due to his rising popularity. Apart from his films and series, Merc with a mouth is also in the news for his investments. After he purchased Wrexham A.F.C., the Free Guy actor gathered enough attention for the docuseries about his football team.
Michael Eisner, the former chairman and CEO of The Walt Disney Company, too, lauded Welcome to Wrexham on Twitter. The American business tycoon praised the series for perfectly capturing the emotions and angst felt by the fans. Furthermore, he appreciated both the co-owners, Rob McElhenney and Ryan Reynolds. However, instead of thanking him, the Deadpool actor decided to get back at Michael, only to rue it later.
What the hell does this guy know about emotional storytelling?

Initially, Reynolds wanted to troll Michael on Twitter, questioning Michael’s knowledge about emotional storytelling, but stopped as soon as he realized it was billionaire Michael Eisner. Previously, Eisner was the president of Paramount Pictures and worked at various television networks like NBC, CBS, and ABC.
Ryan’s tweet received mixed reactions from the fans. While some found the tweet hilarious, others sarcastically asked Reynolds what he knew about football. However, most of the tweets were from fans appreciating the show.
What do you know about soccer? @VancityReynolds

Honestly watching this tv show has become the highlight of my week. Ryan and Rob are great, but the real highlight is the absolute love and dedication for the club that the staff and fans have. Its beautiful to see.

Understandable if you weren't following Hollywood Business in the late 20th century, but he was CEO of Disney for around 20 years.
Then he was replaced by Bob Iger who helped Disney buy Marvel, Star Wars, and Fox.
Then Iger was replaced by Bob Chapek who's now milking the parks

I watch and rewatch every episode. I'm about to queue up another one now to decompress from work. Never was a fan of football but I'm learning, check the Wrexham standings every week, and listen to podcasts. W2Wx is engaging and uplifting. #WrexhamAFC 🏴⚽️❤️💚

Man oh man that was a great new episode. It’s so strange to feel the crushing weight that you & Rob must’ve felt during that week of visits in that episode. You’re exquisite humanity was really clear. You had a huge weight on you to support everyone in the process of meeting all!

Where is the tweet where he “attacks” Michael Eisner?
The tweet in the article is not an attack. It’s a sarcastic tweet, which Ryan is very well known for. How is this even an article? I love how the author thinks that Ryan can’t edit tweets in the middle of writing them. He assumes that once he started the tweet as an attack, he then stopped to actually check the name, and then regretted it. And instead of deleting the tweet (which is what any rational person would do if this weren’t a sarcastic tweet) he continued with “Oh”.
Ryan knows who the fuck Michael Eisner is, and was using sarcasm to emphasize that Eisner knows about emotional storytelling. Fuck.
