Criticism Forces Joss Whedon to Delete Twitter Account

Joss Whedon is one of the most popular sci-fi television and film directors. Joss became famous for his television shows “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly.” Both series have diehard fans and a cult following. In 2012, he wrote and directed “The Avengers,” which had the biggest opening weekend in America and has grossed 1.5 billion dollars worldwide. It is currently the third highest grossing film.

However, some people aren’t happy with the sequel “Avengers: Age of Ultron.” Joss was recently subjected to a steady stream of vicious criticism and complaints through his now closed Twitter account. It appears that many people are offended over his supposed sexist portrayal of the Black Widow character, who is played by Scarlett Johansson.  On their website, Anastasia Date defends Whedon, stating that  this is surprising because Joss created the immortal Buffy, who is one of the strongest female characters in television.

In the end, Joss Whedon closed his Twitter account because of the barrage of criticism. Joss has also announced that he will not be working on a third Avenger film due to production and studio difficulties.
