Except it's not that way at all. It's perfectly ok for left wingers to tweet about abusing Trump's kids or wishing harm on Trump and conservatives in general with zero repercussions. The second a conservative strikes back and gives these mentally ill idiots like Eats a taste of their own medicine, those on the left can't wait to scream racist/homophobe/etc etc etc.

The amazing double standard that progressive marxists shitbags employ is simply amazing to watch.

Hey shit for brains, I am not saying that this double standard doesn't exist, but for you to bring it up when this fuckhead (gunn) is facing consequences for his bullshit, seems to be deliberately embracing your own brand of chip on the shoulder idiotic ideology in the face of reality.

He didn't deserve to be fired. The only thing he's guilty of is trying to imitate Jim Norton and failing.

If it was just a bunch of old, completely tasteless jokes, I'd absolutely agree. I mean, we're talking about the guy who kicked off his film career by writing the script for Tromeo and Juliet. His directorial debut was Slither and he followed that up shortly after with a web series called James Gunn's PG Porn, a porn parody series. With the exception of the two live-action Scooby-Doo scripts, the groundwork for Gunn's career was built with crass jokes and generally being completely "off color". In other words, Disney knew what they were getting when they brought Gunn on board.

If the child porn shit Breitbart is talking about is actually correct, however...it would change things. I'm not putting a whole lot of stock in it, simply because they're currently the only ones really talking about that particular angle. And no, I'm not immediately writing Breitbart's article off purely because it's from Breitbart; at this point, they'd essentially be a single source and I don't place much stock in single sources. If we see some further corroboration that doesn't ultimately lead back to the same article, then we can talk.

Looking at it from a purely artistic/entertainment standpoint, it really sucks to see him get fired. I liked what he brought to the MCU and his absence will definitely be noticed.

Because itís Hollywood and because there would need to be some kind of criminal evidence for them to get a warrant to search his computer. I donít know if a bunch of old tweets would be enough for a judge to grant the warrant. I certainly hope his local PD is looking into it.

The Chan has a few posts on there, which if credible, look criminal enough to me.

Again, member of NAMBLA!

Why isn't that organization brought down yet?

Wait wait wait, so there is evidence? Or there isn't evidence?

I'm not talking about "Oh this guy said some stuff" or "Maybe this is a red flag". They haven't got the pre-crime division up and running yet.

If a crime has been committed of this magnitude and there's apparent evidence how is he not locked up? Serious question.

Hollywood wasn't powerful enough to protect Harvey Weinstein from being charged over some allegations, so I have a seriously hard time believing that they are suddenly so powerful and all-reaching as to sweep something which I think we all agree is infinity more serious under the rug.

If there's no evidence or crime then what the hell are we talking about and who gives a shit?

Harvey Weinstein got away with it for years, decades even. It was so well known in Hollywood, that it was a running joke. Yet no one did anything until now. If the person is making money, and has the right politics, they can get away with just about anything.

Don't move the goalposts.

There doesn't have to be a crime committed (or evidence thereof) in today's #MeToo world for a disgusting piece of filth to get fired.

The only one moving goalposts here is you. I don't give a shit that he is fired, Disney can hire and fire whoever the fuck they want to.

I want to know why, if there is a crime and evidence, he is not in jail?

Music says you can get away with it for years "because Hollywood", but it sounds like it's already been years so where the hell is the criminal prosecution? Or is this crime somehow different because it's worse and thus less worthy of prosecution?

Holy shit, dude. Only someone with their head tucked far up their colon could possibly try to submit that the right and left do not whine like babies in equal degree. They had a race to the bottom and everyone lost.

If you think the right and left are equal in whining, I suggest you hop on Twitter or Facebook and post something offensive toward progressives and something offensive toward conservatives. If you think the response will be the same, your head is so far up your ass it made its way back out again.

Oh please Terran, how fucking naive you are, or maybe you actually forgot all the butt-hurt conservatives when Milo Yiannopoulos was called out of his pedo comments and left Breitbart. All the cries of "We need more context!", "It's taken out of context" and the crowd favorite "it wasn't recent, he's not like that anymore". Or how offended conservatives got about such important matters such as:

NFL players kneeling during the national anthem
Unisex restrooms
Starbucks cups not being festive enough
Starbucks employees not saying Merry Christmas
Starbucks featuring a pair of holding hands that are "obviously" lesbian hands
A lady with a Fuck Trump sticker on her truck (they were foaming at the mouth and calling for her arrest over that one).
Kathy Griffin and her rather tasteless Trump photo shoot, but hey your pal Ted Nugent practically made direct death threats against Obama and Donny Trump invited him over to the White House. That taught him a lesson.

Then of course how quick they are to toss n****r and fa***t into the conversation when they get triggered, but it's not their fault right, the guy with pride flag avatar was being really mean to them.

There's plenty of butthurt everybody out there, lol, but there's only one gigantic, metastasizing flash mob out to destroy you and your livelihood on a regular basis, and that's leftist progressives.

If you think the Little Sisters of the Poor or the Tea Party are a threat to your free speech rights, you're nutburgers, lol.

Bill Cosby got away with it since the 80s, Harvey Weinstein Got away with it since the 90s, Jerry Sandusky got away with it, at the very least, for 15 years. There were rumors it went back to the 70s. When you're rich, famous, and powerful people look the other way.

James Gunn (and Michael Ian Black) didn't do anything illegal or wrong as far as their tweets are concerned. Listen to 5 minutes of Jim Norton's "Uncle Paul" character and it's essentially the same thing. The problem is written jokes are so much easier to take out of context. I don't see any serious accusations about James Gunn having child porn. The FBI would be raiding his home as we speak.
