In 2017, alleged fake feminist Joss Whedon took over the reins of Warner Bros’ Justice League movie from director Zack Snyder, who had to leave the project due to a personal tragedy. Whedon promised to remain true to Snyder’s vision for the movie, but it quickly became clear that Whedon’s goal was to eliminate all of Snyder’s badass Superman scenes and replace them with scenes where Cyborg says “booyah,” effectively ruining the film. It was in this way that Whedon became the antagonist of all Snyderbronies, the colloquial term for hardcore fans of Zack Snyder and his DCEU.
But now, Whedon has set his sites on another group, targeting supporters of Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders. In a tweet Thursday, Whedon lashed out at Bernie Bros, Sanders’ own group of hardcore supporters, hoping to make them feel some of the pain he doled out to Snyderbronies a few years back.
I’m a BERNIE BRO(ke the party’s back in ‘16 cuz he couldn’t learn to lose)

Will Whedon succeed in destroying Bernie Sanders’ vision of a socialist America? Or will Bernie Bros and Snyderbronies find common ground and join together forming a new voting bloc, the Berniebronies, with a common platform of free healthcare for all and the release of The Snyder Cut, a version of Justice League which restores Zack Snyder’s Vision to its rightful place at the head of the DC Cinematic Universe? We’ll have to find out as the primaries heat up, but the Snyder Cut is sure to be an important issue in the upcoming election.
