James Gunn has been fired from Guardians of the Galaxy after a series of offensive social media posts from his past resurfaced online.
“The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’s Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,” said Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn in a statement Friday.
The shocking tweets, published between 2009 and 2012, and since deleted (albeit not permanently, as shown below), were unearthed by conservative pundits Jack Posobiec and Mike Cernovich and involve a series of NSFW homophobic, transphobic, and rape- and pedophilia-related jokes.
