(LOS ANGELES) -- Kurt Sutter, the outspoken creator of the FX drama Sons of Anarchy, knows when it's time to stop tweeting. He's shut down his Twitter account after he claimed on the site last week that Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner was responsible for the recent firing of The Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont. In reference to Weiner's lengthy talks with AMC earlier this year for a new Mad Men deal, Sutter tweeted, "why darabont got fired - weiner. he held AMC hostage, broke their bank, budgets were slashed." Darabont oversaw production of AMC's The Walking Dead.
On his website, Sutter explained his decision to quit Twitter, writing, "I'm a guy desperately in need of buffers. I have big feelings, big reactions, big emotions." Last month, he took to Twitter to complain that his show had not been nominated for an Emmy.
