Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana Break Silence On James Gunn's Disney Firing

Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana Break Silence On James Gunn's Disney Firing”

More than that, there's the question of whether James Gunn would want to return, but this also sparks the conversation of what this could mean for those out there who work in the industry and what past comments or tweets could potentially come back to haunt them later.

The swift firing by Disney of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has prompted an equally swift response from both sides of the aisle, with those who felt that Disney was justified in severing its ties with Gunn, and those who felt that Disney went too far.

The actress took to Twitter in support of James Gunn after he was sacked old tweets touching on subjects like rape and pedophilia. Gunn apologized for the tweets, saying he's "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".

Leading star Chris Pratt, who plays Peter Quill aka Star-Lord, took to Twitter to publish a bible verse which read: "Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters".

Karen Gillan, who plays Nebula in the franchise, also appeared to lend her support to Gunn in a similarly worded tweet, writting: "Love to every single member of my GOTG family". You propped me up when I was in a scary place, and guided me towards the decent and right thing to do.

On Monday, he wrote, "What will you do when the #cybernazis attack you?" The Daily Caller reported that James Gunn tweeted about controversial and offensive topics. No sense in cutting loose a good man.

The petition garnered more than 160,000 signatures as of early Monday.

Now, his brother and frequent collaborator Sean Gunn has issued a statement of his own. "As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor".

"Really, it was two men who were the most comforting to me in saying, 'You'll be safe, you'll be OK, '" Blair told The Hollywood Reporter in February. He's gentle and kind and care deeply for people and animals.
