Earlier today, Paul Ryan shared this photo of a meeting he had with childhood cancer survivors:

Director Joss Whedon didn’t see a sweet, inspirational moment so much as an opportunity to show what a flaming jackass he is:

You proud of yourself, jerk? Sexualizing young women isn’t enough for you? Your hatred for Paul Ryan runs so deep that you have to mock cancer survivors, too?

That person being scum probably plays a significant role.

Sadly they probably won’t hear an apology from Whedon.

Update:

Believe it or not, there’s a whole other layer of awful here:

Hollywood sure can pick ’em.

Update: Whedon eventually deleted the tweet after realizing it had “inadvertently” offended the wrong people. Is this the weakest “I’m sorry” ever to appear on social media?
