Hate Speech Chases Joss Whedon Off Twitter

Joss Whedon, the guy who brought us Buffy the Vampire Slayer, wrote episodes of Roseanne, brought our favorite heroes to the big screen, not once but twice and did very well, has quit Twitter and deleted his account because of the hate spewed on the internet towards him.

Whedon’s final message: “Thank you to all the people who’ve been so kind and funny and inspiring up in here.”

The internet hate is over the Avengers: Age of Ultron plot thread of Scarlett Johansson’s character Black Widow and the depiction of Quicksliver.

Patton Oswalt has come to the defense of Whedon.

Can’t we direct all this Whedon anger towards Michael Bay?
