After one too many sexist Twitter trolls got in his face about his forthcoming all-female “Ghostbusters” remake, a vacationing Paul Feig —who we like to imagine floating languidly on an inflatable swan, pants and suit sleeves generously rolled up to avoid splashback — decided to give his critics a bit of a talking to.

Later that night, sipping his ecto-cooler daquiri on a veranda lush with tropical bougainvillea, the esteemed director dug in for a few more 140-character smackdowns.

Enjoy your vacation, Feig — you’ve earned it.
