Fervent feminist Joss Whedon was exposed as a fervent hypocrite over the weekend when the filmmaker’s ex-wife, Kai Cole, revealed his promiscuous, calculated ways.
In a guest essay published by The Wrap, Cole wrote, ‘He used his relationship with me as a shield … so no one would question his relationships with other women or scrutinize his writing as anything other than feminist.’
Whedon, an unabashed advocate for feminism on social media, also allegedly cheated on Cole on numerous occasions.
‘Joss admitted that for the next decade and a half, he hid multiple affairs and a number of inappropriate emotional ones that he had with his actresses, co-workers, fans and friends, while he stayed married to me,’ Cole surmised.
Cole states Whedon sent a letter admitting the extramarital affairs occurred because he was ‘surrounded by beautiful, needy, aggressive young women’.
‘It felt like I had a disease, like something from a Greek myth. Suddenly I am a powerful producer and the world is laid out at my feet and I can’t touch it,’ Cole claims Whedon’s letter read, which is at the least slightly disturbing.
A spokesperson for Whedon responded to the claims as they told DailyMail.com: ‘While this account includes several inaccuracies and misrepresentations which can be harmful to their family, Joss will not be commenting, out of concern for his children and out of respect for his ex-wife.’
I, for one, am so surprised by the revelation that Joss Whedon is a hypocritical piece of shit. It’s not as if he judged the looks of cancer patients or he’s written material best described as sexist in the past.
This is the problem with being loud and forceful about your beliefs, Gossipers. You often get exposed as a hypocritical piece of garbage.
