David Bautista & Other Celebrities Weigh in on James Gunn's Firing!

The Guardians co-star and other celebrities have made their opinion known on the sudden removal of director James Gunn from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

In the days since director James Gunn was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, many new things have come to light. Namely #1 being that the man who unearthed all the tweets Gunn made, Mike Cernovich, is a conservative nutcase who has his own share of tweets that are equally appalling but are so not him joking, which Gunn at least was. Just a reminder that these tweets were found out several years ago, and Gunn himself apologized for them. Cernovich? Not so much...

The other is that many celebrities have come to denounce his firings. The biggest name is Dave Bautista, who co-starred in Gunn's Guardian of the Galaxy films. Here's what he had to say via Twitter (of course):


Then there's Gunn's old employer, Lloyd Kaufman from Troma Pictures who made this video on the matter: 



Another Guardian's co-star, and Gunn's own brother, Sean, even talked at length on the matter as well on Twitter:












Surprisingly the other most vocal celebrity is Selma Blair, who's taken up a few tweets on the issue. She was the first to respond to Batista's comments and then has followed up on them quite a bit.







The petition to which Blair is talking about in the last tweet is one from Change.Org, that as of this moment has over 106,000 people signed for Gunn to be rehired by Disney. Will it happen? Probably not. Still, if anything else on this front develops, or more news develops we'll keep you up to date on it.
