James Gunn Fired as Director of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3


Quote:
James Gunn is exiting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

The move comes after conservative personalities resurfaced old tweets Thursday in which the filmmaker joked about controversial topics such as pedophilia and rape. Gunn has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

"The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on Jamesí Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studioís values, and we have severed our business relationship with him," Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said in a statement Friday.

On Thursday, Gunn tweeted in response to the tweets being resurfaced, "Many people who have followed my career know, when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as Iíve developed as a person, so has my work and my humor."

He added: "Itís not to say Iím better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger. My days saying something just because itís shocking and trying to get a reaction are over."

The offensive tweets came to light after conservative website The Daily Caller dug up the social media posts, which were mostly posted in 2008 and 2009. Soon after, conservative personalities were tweeting to followers to confront Gunn at Comic-Con. Gunn had been expected to be at Sony's presentation on Friday. Insiders say Gunn is not expected to be part of the panel now.

Gunn issued a statement on Friday afternoon, saying that he "regretted" the tweets in question and stressed that "they don't reflect the person I am today."
The Hollywood Reporter

Turnabout is fair play. If Rosanne can be fired for retweeting one offensive meme, then Gunn certainly should be fired for posting pedophile videos on his personal website.

Mr. Gunn, after Roseanne was fired:



Progressives have unleashed mob rule. Now they're learning what it means to play by their own rules. It's ugly. It's destructive. It's unfair. (edit: Upon further investigation, OMG is it fair). It's social justice, progressive style.

No matter what you think of him, Mike Cernovich is a winner and he pretty much got this rolling full speed on his own.

If anyone would like to know just WHAT GUNN TWEETED, click that link.

What the hell does "turnabout" have to do with it?

Roseanne and Gunn both being pieces of shit are two things that are completely independent of each other. If Roseanne somehow miraculously wasn't a raging racist shitbag, Gunn would STILL be a galloping puff of taco bell diarrhea.

They do not require each other to be awful.

This is pretty ridiculous imo.

He made some bad jokes a decade ago. They weren't racist and he has no real victims. Unless there is some reason to think he is an actual pedophile or advocates pedophilia I don't really understand this.

In Avengers 2 Tony Stark makes a joke about reestablishing primae noctis.


If these tweets were more recent I would be more understanding of Disney's position, but cultural norms have changed with all the metoo stuff happening in Hollywood right now.

Like if that tweet from Roseanne was from 2009 I wouldn't agree that she should've been fired.

Even that tweet from Roseanne was really more about actual underlying political beliefs that she has though, and not just a poor attempt at humor.

???

Where does anyone talk about that?

That isn't a part of the story I have seen anywhere.

Yes, it is. Read the stories again. Gunn had a video posted on his website that he got from a convicted pedophile. (I'll let you look up the name, I'm not going to post it.) He quickly tried to take down the site and the video when the story broke, but big sites like Breitbart already got saved images of it. That's why he was fired, not because of the rape jokes, but because he got caught with kiddie porn.

They're so progressive that these are there only two fucking arguments ever, as if being a racist is WORSE than a pedophile. Or how about the idiocy that there is no victim here, except the fact that he told the world some very disgusting things about some very specific people (actors in videos for one). ABC fired this demon because his tweets were "indefensible", their words.


Yet here come the dumb as rocks (yet "intelligent") Liberal Alt-Left, the Antifa-supporting, Communist-rooted, Illegal Immigrants for Votes-rooting, supporters of pedophiles!



I've got news for those motherfuckers, YOU are NOT normalizing this shit. WE WILL FUCKING STOP YOU. WE WILL FIND YOU PREDATORS. WE WILL STOP THIS EVIL INSIDE YOU AND PROTECT the CHILDREN FROM YOUR MONSTROSITIES.


Don't ever touch me again!

I hope he is convicted and further investigations ramped-up to his personal contacts, twice-removed.

I don't like Roseanne by any means, but her tweets were pretty tame compared to this guys.

Glad his BS is outed and the same twitter SJdouche mob he uses cannibalizes him.

Ok, nevermind.

I thought this was just bad jokes, which is what all of the major stories are talking about, including the one you linked in this headline.

If he is an actual pedophile then this is a totally different thing.

Not sure if you spent any time researching pizzagate when it was all the rage. I did. Some of it was head spinning, some of it made me want to take off running down the street. Disturbing shit.

But thumbing through his Instagram, Twitter and his now shuttered website tells me all i need to know.

Same language, same strange pics, same winks and nods and many of the PG suspects, NAMBLA member.

Putin says America is run by satanic pedophiles. And before Trump, he was right.

I cannot tell you guys how much i support a Putin Trump coalition to take down these people. Im not super religious, but when it comes to this stuff, whatever it takes...I want to watch these people burn.. slowly. LETS GET THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD!!

Best. Comment. Ever.

The US is so broken right now it's somehow become NOT about two distasteful people being censured (NOTE: NOT censored). It's somehow become "Oh you made life difficult for a right wing distasteful person so now we're going to get revenge on a distasteful left wing person".

Sigh.

Well shit. Guardians was my favorite, but he fucked up and has to go. If he had possession of and posted child porn, even as a joke, I hope he gets prosecuted.
