*The Los Angeles red carpet premiere of “Black Panther” reportedly took place without the woman who wrote the comic book series upon which the Marvel film is based.

“My feelings are real hurt that I didn’t get an invite. I mean goddamn Marvel. Goddamn,” Roxane Gay, co-writer of the comic book series “Black Panther: World of Wakanda” tweeted.

Gay and Yona Harvey in 2016 became the first black women to serve as lead writers for Marvel.

She added, “I mean. It’s fine. I’M not fancy. Just admitting that my lil feelings were hurt.”

Despite the snub, Gay still encouraged people to see the film starring Chadwick Boseman in the title role.

“I hope you all support the movie enthusiastically. By all early accounts, [it] is incredible. And a lot of black work and creativity went into its making,” she tweeted.
