You just can’t make this shit up. Real life is almost always more bizarre and madcap than fiction. Take Joss Whedon today, for example. He decided to ring in Mother’s Day the best way he knew how…by saying he’s glad his mom is dead.
Today I gratefully give my mother the gift of having been dead for 25 years and not having to see what a tub of fuckery our country's become

This is one of the most insane and hateful things I’ve read in a long while. Whedon seems to have gone completely over the edge since Trump inauguration, but this is a new level even for him. Well, I don’t know. Maybe making fun of underage cancer patients so you can try to score points against Trump is even worse, but this is his own mom, so I’m going to give it the slight lead. How fucked in the head do you have to be to say you are glad your mother is no longer with us over politics? Dude, get a grip. I realize your team lost, but c’mon. Using your dead mother as a prop for retweets? That is beyond the pale.
People from left and right were left aghast at his comment…

Between the rhino rape comment, the glad his mother's dead tweet, the cancer survivor teens not a 10 tweet…who is the bad person here?

I’m about to write a post on my mother right after this one. I literally could no imagine thinking this way, no matter who the hell was in power politically. There are people, such as Joss Whedon, who let the political completely consume their lives. It’s pretty sad.
