    Whedon was a cunt back when Buffy was a thing. So sad these people go on to have such success.

    The entertainment industry rewards two skills - The ability to make money and a very distant second, the ability to please audiences. Do both and all the underage sex parties and anti-Semitic rants in the world will barely slow you down.

    As a fan of Buffy/Angel/Firefly this is so disappointing to hear about Whedon. But fuck em, glad it's called out.

    Let's not forget he wrote the first bad Alien movie too.

    Whedon was called out about it a few years ago, then his ex-wife really went to town on him and he vanished for a few years hoping it would all be forgot about. Looks like he is finished now though

    Doubt it, I'm sure he'll be back on the redemption tour before you know it.

    I didn't realize Cyborg was written out of the Flash movie because of the Ray Fisher's comments about Whedon. Says it all really, punish the victims, support the scum bags.

    It was bloody brilliant just a shame hardly anyone saw it. Itís not Armandoís best work but it was always going to be hard following up a masterpiece like Death of Stalin.

    How Privileged are you?

    31 out of 100, not very it seems. My wife got 80 so combined we're super privileged lol.

    That buzzfeed thing is very American centric - take it with a pinch of salt.

    I also scored 69 on a privilege scale. That was in no way planned.

    Also America sounds shite with some of those questions - I can afford a therapist and I have frequent flier miles. Wtf? I don't even understand.

    someone said 'no' to him on Twitter one time. It was a dark time for us all but he never recovered.

    I like to think he had a single bad hot take, got challenged and double downed on it and refused to back down and it got out of hand.

    Doesn't strike me as the type of person who can ever say "yep I was wrong"

    I wonder how heís viewed in the industry now.

    I think his most recent credit is as one of three or four co-writers on series 1 of Motherland but on series 2 his name had been replaced by his wifeís

    At this stage it legit seems like mental issues rather than just stubbornness. Invading and policing lesbian dating apps seems a step farther than just shouting into the void on social media.

    60. Question 1 was problematic for me which immediately made me think the whole thing was flawed.

    My dim memory of it is that someone pointed out how transphobic that episode of the IT Crowd was and he just lost his fucking mind, so it seems like both. Itís a really long road for him to prove thereís nothing wrong with it.

    Heís also refused to have anything to do with C4 until they put that episode back into rotation. Actually, is it on Netflix?

    37. Apparently I am not privileged. Thatís not really true though, itís mostly because the questions all specify ďeverĒ. Iím a white, bisexual male who has in the past been in deep poverty, and have had lifelong mental health issues. But Iím now financially comfortable and am married to a woman, so my outward appearance is basically a middle class straight white man.

    Hmm... I struggle to answer many of those question. I've had plenty of violence / abuse over the years because of being the child of a (European) immigrant, but that doesn't make me a different race, obviously.

    I didn't count the racism from when I lived in Asia, and pretended I was living in the US for some of them. I was like 80 also.
