Slecht nieuws voor de fans van The Guardians of the Galaxy films, want de regisseur James Gunn is ontslagen door ongepaste tweets die hij in het verleden heeft gedaan. Daar maakte hij grappen over AIDS en pedofilie. Dingen die vrij ernstig zijn, maar James Gunn heeft een geschiedenis van het maken van botte en niet politiek correcte grappen en dat kan in een tijd van jankerige mensen online niet meer


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.?

James Gunn

??My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative. I have regretted them for many years since ?? not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, 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.?

??Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today. Even these many years later, I take full responsibility for the way I conducted myself then. All I can do now, beyond offering my sincere and heartfelt regret, is to be the best human being I can be: accepting, understanding, committed to equality, and far more thoughtful about my public statements and my obligations to our public discourse. To everyone inside my industry and beyond, I again offer my deepest apologies. Love to all.?
