He beat his sister, threatened to cut open his pregnant sister at swordpoint and told her he'd happily let every Dothraki and all their horses rape her to get himself the crown. That's pretty sadistic.
The difference between Joffrey and Viserys is that Viserys was an exile who had no power and had to beg people for help and Joffrey has a bunch of Lannister lapdogs going along with whatever sadistic whim he feels like. If Viserys had Joffrey's resources he'd be just as bad, if not worse. Contrastly, if Joffrey got thrown onto another continent with nothing, he'd be picked off in a matter of time.
Jaime is an asshole, The Hound is an asshole, Robert is an asshole. Viserys is fucked up in the head.
I don't wanna wait another year for more GoT
