Filmmaker Joss Whedon took things to a new level when he is on Twitter with a coarse, violent message of the House of representatives Paul Ryan.

“Violence does not solve anything. I want a rhino f–k @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn, because it’s FUNNY, not because he is a #GOPmurderbro,” Whedon, best known for creating “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and “Agents of S. H. I. E. L. D.” tweeted.

Whedon’s tweet elicited reactions from his followers, who found the filmmaker’s comment offensive.

.@joss People like you are the reason why I stopped being a Democrat. Get the help you need before someone gets it for you. @SpeakerRyan

@joss good job at making your side look even more unhinged and detached from reality. pic.twitter.com/S01WWYMe9f

@joss Talented writer and director. Epic films. A poor judgment. pic.twitter.com/j6Z7PUKg4a

@joss, “I am against violence, but I want to be a wild animal graphic murder someone who thinks differently than I do.”

@joss this is more than disappointing. You behave like a child. How is this at all appropriate to say?

@joss @SpeakerRyan I mean… is this where we are at? Really? Good grief, man.

@TiffyBrimple that death to people. Grow up. Democrats preach culture and tolerance. Have something to say, while the other is hypocrisy.

Whedon also went after actress Nicole Kidman, who last week encouraged people to accept the results of the election.
