Dave Bautista is coming to James Gunn’s defense.
On Friday evening, the actor tweeted that he's “not ok” with the writer-director’s firing from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, which Disney announced earlier in the day.
“I will have more to say but for right now all I will say is this..@JamesGunn is one of the most loving, caring, good natured people I have ever met,” tweeted Bautista. “He’s gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. He’s made mistakes. We all have. I’m NOT ok with what’s happening to him.”
Gunn's firing came after conservative personalities resurfaced old tweets Thursday in which the filmmaker joked about controversial topics such as pedophilia and rape. Disney announced Friday that the studio was severing ties with the director, for his “offensive attitudes and statements.
