Social Media Shocker: Joss Whedon Quits Twitter

He was probably hurt by all the people making fun of Age of Ultron only scoring the SECOND highest opening weekend box office of all time.

Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss Whedon has apparently quit Twitter, according to multiple reports around the web and the fact that his Twitter account page leads to a "does not exist" message on Twitter's website. Whedon's final tweet was captured by Screencrush, which apparently monitors and constantly screencaps the twitter accounts of celebrities for just such a contingency. In the event that Screencrush follows suit and quits Twitter as well, we have have screenshotted their tweet below. We recommend you screenshot our articles containing their tweet, you know, just in case. These things tend to have a snowball effect, and we can already feel the butthurt building.

In the wake of this news, the industry and community have been left shocked and confused. What offended Whedon so much that he felt the need to cut off contact with the social media world? Will other popular creative types follow suit? What will Whedon do with all his free time now that he has quit both directing Marvel movies and tweeting intelligent thoughts about important cultural issues in 140 characters or less? How will we know whether or not a guy who used some of the most common and outdated female tropes in fiction for Black Widow's story arc in Age of Ultron thinks Jurassic World is too sexist?! What did Whedon have for lunch today? WHAT DID HE HAVE, GODDAMN IT?!

Unfortunately, for now, these questions must remain unanswered. This could go one of two ways, folks. Either past celebrity Twitter sabbaticals are a good indicator that Whedon will probably be back online by the end of the week, or it will be a seminal moment in our cultural history, and thirty years from now, we'll all be asking each other, "Do you remember what you were doing when you first heard that Joss Whedon quit Twitter?"

"I was reading a dumb ass article on that dumb ass website TheOuthousers," you'll reply.
