Director Joss Whedon has been rendered so mental unstable by the election of Donald Trump that he never tires of making a spectacle of himself in public. Yesterday, however, he crossed many lines and even his liberal fans and supporters were forced to call him out for his ugliness.

The occasion for Whedon’s attempt at humor was a meeting between Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and a group of children who had survived pediatric cancer. The kids had made the trip to D.C. to raise awareness for the fight against this dreaded disease.

How do you make a joke out of a politician meeting with an advocacy group of children who are trying to help other kids suffering with cancer. You don’t, as Whedon discovered after posting this incredibly tasteless and offensive tweet:

Whedon deleted the tweet soon after but not before screenshots were recorded, along with reactions:


Whedon later provided what he evidently thought was an apology and promised to shut up, though something tells me we haven’t heard the last from this cretin.
