A letter supporting the recently shamed, (and fired) director James Gunn has been circulating and is signed by the entire cast of “Guardians of the Galaxy” calling for Marvel Studios and Disney to reinstate Gunn as the director of the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy 3” movie.
Disney released a statement last week that Gunn will not be returning to work on the upcoming movie “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3”, after thousands of pedophilia-laced tweets resurfaced from his personal Twitter account.
Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn released the following statement:
“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him.”
As Big League Reported, “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn has made headlines this week after numerous offensive tweets were uncovered on his Twitter page, with topics including rape and pedophilia. The tweets that have resurfaced from Gunn’s account give a glimpse into the mind of this demented and deranged filmmaker. Gunn has made a feeble attempt to explain his tweets away as jokes, but his tweets are anything but funny.
Sick tweets from Gunn including one that read, “The best thing about being raped is when you’re done being raped it’s like ‘Whew, this feels great, not being raped!’”
Other tweets authored by Gunn that he has since deleted also mentioned sexual acts with children, people who have AIDS, and a few that mentioned urinating on children.
After several supporters and defenders of James Gunn spoke out on Twitter and other social media platforms, we now have a signed letter that DEMANDS he’s hired back on for the third installment of “Guardians of the Galaxy” by Disney and Marvel Studios.
Actor Chris Pratt took the lead in the demands that Gunn be reinstated, but the entire cast of the series including, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana and Pom Klementieff, who also tweeted the letter out on her Twitter page, have banded together to show their support for the shamed director. Chris Pratt posted the same letter, signed by the cast on his Instagram page with the same caption as Pom’s. Either they have the exact same thoughts, or they have the exact same instructions to tweet/post the same captions on all their social media posts. I’m guessing it’s the latter. Really makes one wonder who’s calling the shots with their PR firm.
With the two posts being identical, both cast members state that they do not “support” Gunn’s tweets, and that he is a “good man” who simply made “inappropriate jokes” years ago.
Again, I go back to the idea that one time is chance, twice is coincidence, three times is a pattern, and thousands of pedophilia-laced tweets, well…you decide.
