In a recent study (https://www.nature.com/articles/s41467-018-05433-9) an important flaw in Emergent Gravity/Entropic Gravity has been spotted because it has been discovered that holographic screens cannot behave according to thermodynamics.

But then, doesn't this also invalidate holographic principle? Since in holographic principle, entropy (information) from a bulk would be encoded on its boundary, and according to this study holographic screens would not behave according to thermodynamics, wouldn't holographic principle models also be affected by these results? Does this study completely invalidate holographic screens?

And the most important question: is this study correct? Is it there any "reply" to this study showing that it is wrong? Has Erik Verlinde, the author of "Entropic Gravity" said anything?
