‘Avengers’ Director Tweets Trump Death Wish: ‘Just Die Quietly’

Virginia Kruta Associate Editor

“Avengers” director Joss Whedon tweeted Wednesday that he wants President Donald Trump to die. He also claimed that the president was “killing this country” and “emboldening monsters.”

Whedon, who also wrote and directed the cult classic “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” has attacked President Trump many times before. Last month, Whedon suggested that Trump was an illegitimate occupant of the White House.

Whedon has also viciously attacked House Speaker Paul Ryan, suggesting that his gruesome death would be funny.

Most recently, Whedon has been criticized for his treatment of the women in his personal life while he built television shows around strong female characters and proclaimed himself a feminist.

Just 24 hours prior to wishing death on the president, Whedon commented about the amount of hate he receives on Twitter.

It’s a safe bet he’s getting more of it now.
