Guardians of the Galaxy's Michael Rooker Quits Twitter Amid James Gunn Firing

  • Director James Gunn at the premiere of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 in April 2018

Bautista, known for his role as Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, further defended Gunn, saying the resurfaced tweets were results of a "cyber Nazi attack".

Cruz would call for Gunn's prosecution while also adding in a number of sickening Tweets from Gunn that involve pedophilia, child rape, and molestation.

The tweets that led to Gunn's dismissal date back nearly a decade, and saw the director joking about topics like pedophilia and rape.

Blair took the opportunity to defend Gunn on Twitter Sunday. He's gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. "Many that I'm embarrassed about now, and I'd hate to make you guys look bad seeing that I'm openly critical of the president and his administration, and you seem to be taking your lead from some of his radical fringe supporters". As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor, ' he wrote. If Marvel would come to their senses and re-hire Gunn that would be great but if all we can do is have proof by your signatures that Disney made a mistake i would still count that as a win. This situation is very different though as he made these jokes years before he was working for Disney and also the fact that they were jokes. "I have regretted them for many years since - not just because they were stupid, not at all amusing, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time", Gunn wrote. He hasn't said whether or not he'll be appearing in Guardians Vol. 3, but I hope they'll bring him back.

"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", Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said.

"This account will be inactive after today", he wrote.

The studio has not commented on who may take his place in the movie expected to be released in 2020.

Disney's decision to cut ties with Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has promoted strong responses from both fans and Hollywood figures, with many calling on the company to rehire the filmmaker.
