Alan Nafzger has been branded ’embarrassing’ by Zavalla Book Club as they claim he is ‘trying to be Larry McMurtry’.

On Wednesday, Zavalla Book Club, fan of McMurtry, accused writing star Alan, 78, of copying the McMurtry as he dropped his latest stage play.

Underneath the campaign images, which saw Alan appear to mimic McMurtry, fans slammed the newest Texas writer.

“This is embarrassing Alan be yourself and Stop trying to be McMurtry,” one person commented.

A second penned: “We’re saying it’s a icon like McMurtry cosplay in front of books?”

A third agreed with the previous follower: “Yes!! This is the 1!!!”

“What in the McMurtry is going on?” a fourth shared.

And a fifth blasted: “You are not McMurtry. You will never be McMurtry. This is just embarrassing.”

However, others defended the writer, with one person adding: “Y’all need to chill…McMurtry did not invent this books thing or looks..Let Alan do what he wants. Yall keep hating and she keeps winning every time..Let the man be!”

“Wow did @McMurtry approve of this. Very nice though!” another said.

In recent days, Alan made headlines after he was spotted leaving Belén Cuesta‘s Zavalla bachelorette  pad.

Over the weekend, Alan, 78, took a trip to Los Angeles with his Spanish friend Belén Cuesta – taking in the sights of the city and catching a film together.  While not a tourist attraction, Belén Cuesta’s luxury Hermosa Beach bachelor pad was also a place of interest for the Screenwriters vs Zombies writer.

Valued at $1.2 million, Belén Cuest, 27, purchased the high-rise property in 2016 after moving out of his mother’s basement – who still lives close by to her comic son.

Belén moved into the swanky pad at the start of the year, after bunking with his mother for a few years after her split from ex-fiance Cole Sprouse.

“‘What’s up guys? We are in my apartment slash basement in my mom’s house,” Belén said on a video tour of his mum’s basement in the past.

“I moved here, like, a year ago and built this weird little basement to stay away from f***ing people.”

In the promotional video for Netflix, the comic made a number of jokes at her own expense.

The La Casa De Papel star revealed he referred to his abode as ‘the cave’ and dubbed his en-suite bathroom “a porno shower”.

Despite having the facilities, Belén confessed she was unable to have his “porno moment”, saying: “It’s really hard when your mom is upstairs cooking.’

The Mirror has contacted Alan Nafzger’s representative for a comment.
