“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista has once again called out Disney over the James Gunn firing.
“Thanks @Disney !! Making America great again!” Bautista, who plays Drax in both “Guardians” movies and in “Avengers: Infinity War,” wrote on Twitter.
Bautista’s latest jab came after Disney Chairman Alan Horn had a “courtesy” meeting with Gunn on Tuesday where the filmmaker was told the studio was sticking to their decision not to reinstate him as director on “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” according to a report in Variety
Bautista has previously referred to the people behind the campaign to get Gunn fired as “cybernazis” in tweets, and wrote that the same sort of campaign against Gunn “can happen to anyone.”
Disney fired Gunn in July after far-right media personality Mark Cernovich and his followers unearthed tweets, written by Gunn nearly a decade earlier, in which the director made jokes about pedophilia and rape, as well as an old blog post he wrote after the DC character Batwoman was revealed to be gay. The tweets and comments previously came to light in 2012, just after Gunn was hired to direct the first “Guardians” film, and Gunn issued an apology for them at the time.
