Filmmaker Joss Whedon brought things to a new level when he took to Twitter with a profane, violent message about House Speaker Paul Ryan.
“Violence solves nothing. I want a rhino to f--k @SpeakerRyan to death with its horn because it's FUNNY, not because he's 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 responses from his followers who found the filmmaker's remark offensive.
@joss "I'm against violence, but I want a wild animal to graphically murder someone who thinks differently than me."— Razor (@hale_razor) January 14, 2017
@joss this is beyond disappointing. You're behaving like a child. How is this at all appropriate to say?— Sarah Quinlan (@sarahmquinlan) January 14, 2017
@TiffyBrimple wishing death on people. Grow up. Democrats preach culture and tolerance. Saying something while doing the other is hypocrisy.— Craven Rove (@PwrGmr) January 14, 2017
Whedon also went after actress Nicole Kidman, who last week encouraged people to accept the results of the election.
A rep for Whedon did not return FOX411's request for comment.
