According to The Hollywood Reporter, Avengers director Joss Whedon surprised Comic-Con attendees at a discussion of Comedy Central’s show Another Period.
While talking about the show on July 9, Whedon praised the show saying,“It makes us laugh but it makes us think and it reminds us of the universal truth: that rich, white people are fucking insane.”
An interesting slam considering that Whedon is both rich and white. So rich, in fact, that he’s worth about $100 million (according to Celebrity Net Worth)? Whoops. Does that mean, he too, is ... insane?
Whedon almost immediately connected Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump to the remark and the show, Another Period, a satire about a family that only cares about fame. He said, “I suspect he may be a Bellacourt,” referencing the family from the show.
Going for a two-fer, he insulted cooking personality Paula Dean and Trump for “[acting] like it’s last century.”
