Find this sad and enfuriating, that the some Pokémon fans can be so toxic.
If you are out of the loop, a small but vocal minority has been harassing Masuda and other Game Freak staffers for half a year now because the Pokémon selection in SWSH. And now Masuda was just replying to a fan that wished him a happy birthday, but then another one tells him something about "removing old Pokémon to sell them as DLC", to which Masuda replies asks to please let him relax.
What specially strikes me about this is that it's the first time that he has replied to anybody about the topic. The man really just wants to enjoy his birthday, but Pokémon fans seem to be against even that.
