As a fan of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “Firefly” and “Angel,” it is hard for me to watch those shows’ creator come apart at the seams.
But there’s no doubt about it. Joss Whedon is suffering a very public emotional breakdown.
The other day Whedon took to Twitter to share his deepest, darkest angst.
Wow. He’s “Jossy the Hyperbole Spewer.”
Yes, Joss. Your hate and sadness are exhausting… for us.
Twitter isn’t your therapist.
But clearly you need one.
Should I alert Joss’s mom, his psychiatrist, or the Secret Service? https://t.co/4z4lJYdY6W

To quote Willow Rosenberg – one of your more vibrant character creations – “You have gross emotional problems.”
But Twitter isn’t the proper venue for Joss to reveal these deeply disturbing thoughts.
Instead, these should be things kept between him and a qualified therapist – preferably a psychiatrist who can prescribe the appropriate medications to help allay these psychopathic tendencies.
Twitter shouldn’t be anybody’s therapist.
I can’t believe I have to say that!
But alas, celebrities don’t seem to grasp that simple reality.
Joss isn’t alone, however. Sharing space in this Twitter Rubber Room are Rob Reiner, Barbra Streisand, Rosie O’Donnell, Jim Carrey and a handful of other unhinged, deeply troubled Hollywood loonies.
But it isn’t just Twitter that celebrities mistake for a qualified therapist.
They treat every venue and platform like it’s therapy.
Who can forget Madonna and Ashley Judd turning the Women’s March into a very public group therapy session?
It wasn’t a march.
It was just a chance for girls who share the same emotional issues to get together and try to work their way through the five stages of grief.
Ashley Judd read a poem she apparently wrote herself.
Good for you, Ashley! Journaling is a great form of therapy, you know. And I think you made great progress today.
Madonna felt comfortable enough to share her homicidal fantasies with everyone.
I mean, it’s group therapy, right?
You should feel safe to share your homicidal fantasies with your fellow patients.
And since there were no mental health professionals on hand, Madonna doesn’t have to worry about one of them reporting her homicidal fantasies to the Secret Service.
Though, since it was broadcast live on CNN, there’s a slim chance the Secret Service already knows.
All in all it was a healing day.
The girls were able to get out some of that anger and grief they’ve been bottling up since November 8.
And that’s super important!
I mean, if you can’t find a way to process all that emotional baggage, you’ll end up bitter and alone – with only cats to keep you company.
[Then again, after seeing the crowd, I think it’s fair to say that ship has already sailed for most of them.]
All of this angst should be kept between you and a qualified mental health professional – not broadcast to your millions of followers on Twitter or shrieked into a microphone to thousands of pussy-hat-wearing cat lovers.
Get help – professional help in the form of an actual qualified therapist.
The ResistanceLOL is untreated Liberalism.
And just like syphilis – if left untreated Liberalism causes insanity.
Which, come to think of it, is why they think nothing of actually planning an event called “Scream Helplessly at the Sky.”
As I said before that Primal Scream session:
You would think if these people wanted to be taken seriously, they would be uncomfortable with the idea of wearing their psychopathy on their sleeves this way.
“We’re crazy and unstable! Join us!”
Never go full-on crazy.
Well, Joss Whedon has gone full-on crazy.
But rather than seek professional help, he takes to Twitter and shares his deranged, neurotic lunacy with the world.
And as a fan of his shows, this really does make me tremendously sad.
So out of respect for the work you’ve done, permit me to give you some unsolicited advise, Joss.
Get off Twitter and pick up an anger bat. Instead of using your phone to tweet, use it to call a qualified doctor. Show him on a doll where Donald Trump hurt you.
And move on.
