James Gunn Fired From GOTG Vol 3
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn was let go by Marvel on July 20th due to offensive tweets about pedophilia and rape he made as soon as 2012. The firing happened just a day after these tweets resurfaced after alt-right figures brought them up. They gained more traction when Pizzagate conspiracy theorist and overall awful human being Mike Cernovich got a hold of the story.
Gunn's pension for disturbing remarks has been brought to Marvel's attention in the past however nothing was done. Yet when an alt-right conspiracy theorist threatens their marketability, THEN it matters.
Several of the leads of Gunn's Guardians films have responded to the firing, and are against the decision.
Now Gunn's tweets are disgusting and should not be defended, whatever arguments there are on his firing are understandable, but should not attempt to defend his actions. However this cannot be looked at as an isolated incident, and the nature of how and when Marvel chose to deal with this is suspect and itself disturbing.
