The Criticism is quite warranted.

He was rather polite in what he said, he wasn't diplomatic however. Most of his critics haven't been either. He deserves some credit for his thick skin at the least.

I don't think he comes across as flippant, but he knows that not everyone will be pleased depending on their perspective. But he's made the film, so he's being honest.

So, in other words, fans are basically mad that JJ isn't bothered by their criticism...

I saw nothing wrong in what he said or how he said it...and all I can say is "Kudos, Mr. Abrams, for your restraint and honesty."

Where did you guys come up with "flipping off purists?"
The thread title says he "blows" off purists.
Big difference there.
Blowing someone off simply means you're not letting them bother you.
If anyone's insulted by that it's their own problem.

He indicated that he has already heard from some who were particularly critical of the fact that he did not find a slot for William Shatner, the original Capt. Kirk, in the movie. "For them I say, 'Don't see the movie. You'll just get angry. It is not Shatner playing Kirk, so I do apologize." And actor Chris Pine, who plays Kirk in the new film, indicated that he went out of his way to avoid watching Shatner movie and TV appearances. "I know how I work and by watching a lot of Mr Shatner's performances as Captain Kirk I knew by osmosis I would get on set and try and impersonate Mr Shatner," he said. "It was not my job. I didn't want people to start paying attention to whether I was doing a perfect William Shatner."
And I agree with JJ and Pine 100%!!

This reminds me of when Michael Keaton told the fans to stay home if they didn't like him as Batman. But he wasn't kind or pampering at all when he said it.
