James Gunn Fired From “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3”

James Gunn Fired From “Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3”

James Gunn is done. The Guardians of the Galaxy director has been fired by Disney Studio‘s chairman Alan Horn for an offensive string of tweets made years ago in regards to pedophilia and rape. These tweets were resurfaced, according to Fox News, because Gunn is an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump – and the move was made in an effort to knock the director down a few pegs.

According to THR, the decade-old tweets were uncovered by conservative website The Daily Caller with conservative online personalities soon tweeting their followers to confront Gunn at San Diego Comic-Con during his Sony presentation on Friday. “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,” said Horn.

Gunn had previously been tapped to complete his Guardians trilogy, having already written a script and poised to begin shooting in Atlanta in the fall.
