It's the typical Weinstein nerd syndrome. Guys who were obviously the geeks in high school and got picked on, suddenly find themselves in positions of power and turn out to be just like the people who picked on them.
I have found and truly believe that there is nothing so bad it cannot be made better with a story.
On Friday, Jose Molina, who is credited with two episodes of Whedon's TV show Firefly, claimed that Whedon would "boast" about making women cry.
"'Casually cruel' is a perfect way of describing Joss," Molina wrote in a tweet. "He thought being mean was funny. Making female writers cry during a notes session was especially hysterical. He actually liked to boast about the time he made one writer cry twice in one meeting."
