Are Ghostbusters purists upset about the upcoming new movie’s main role switch from men to women simply, as star Melissa McCarthy says, “trolls” looking for something to hate on the internet, or could there be something more sinister at work, even perhaps involving … Donald Trump?

Comedy filmmaker Judd Apatow thinks there’s a good chance of the latter. In an interview to Uproxx about his film Poster: Never Stop Popping, Apatow defends the reboot’s director, Paul Feig, with whom he has worked with in the past, and calls the critic “idiots” who won’t even give the movie a chance.

Then, of course, Apatow brought Trump and his supporters into the mix. Because, why not?

“I would assume there’s a very large crossover of people who are doubtful Ghostbusters will be great and people excited about the Donald Trump candidacy. I would assume they are the exact same people. That movie is made by the great Paul Feig and stars the funniest people on Earth, so I couldn’t be more excited. I think people have paid too much attention to just some angry trolls. And it will be judged on its own greatness. I don’t think anything really matters the way you think it does. The movie comes out, and it will be great, and people will just be happy to have it. It’s not like anybody really cares about a couple of idiots who hold onto the idea that things never evolve. I always think, you know, we have our past and if you can come up with a new, cool way to do something, then that’s exciting and hopefully it will make a lot of people happy.”
