It appears that And just like that… writers don’t really hate David Eigenberg.

Following the latest episode of the HBO Max series, the writer Roxane Gay asked on Twitter, “At And just like that, do they hate the actor who plays Steve? They didn’t give his character a good scene. He just walks around screaming saying absolute nonsense. It’s weird. He was so adorable.”

Gay wasn’t the only one to criticize the show’s treatment of the good-natured dad, played by David Eigenberg. Another Twitter user added: “And just like that made Steve so dirty GOOD LORD,” and that person said, “Not a fan of most decisions on And just like that…, but I really hate what happened to Steve.”

But show the writers Julie Rottenberg and Elisa Zuritsky to say vanity lounge that Steve’s sad story is not motivated by grudges. On the contrary, says Zuritsky, “Everyone on the show, every person, loves David Eigenberg as a human being.”

So why are they putting Steve (Eigenberg) in hell by making his perpetually grumpy wife, Miranda (Cynthia nixon), cheat on him with Che Diaz (Sara Ramírez) while he remains blissfully – or naively – unconscious, in addition to causing him to lose his hearing? Well, Rottenberg and Zuritsky say it’s not about him, it’s about Miranda.
