James Gunn fired from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.

Bunch of old tweets surfaced after some conservative activist outed some of his tweets from 2009-2012 making gross pedophilia jokes. Gunn hates President Trump's guts, so he was targeted by the group.

Somebody else here can post the tweets, as I'm on my phone, but mostly it reads like mindless stupidity, but yeah -- they were totally made in public on Twitter and Gunn works (worked) for Disney now, so.

I've got mixed feelings, but it's hard to argue that Gunn didn't deserve the ax, even though it's going to hurt the quality of one of the best movie properties out there.

I support Disney's decision here, not that they remotely give a shit.

We live in an era of online abuse and trolling, and any young kid who is bored to death and thinks it'll be largely consequence-less if he wants to spend his youth being an asshole on the internet needs to be aware that this behavior is not and is never acceptable.

Something is fishy about this whole thing.
this is the problem when you allow all these companies to merge into just a few big conglomerates. The first hint of bad publicity, they get rid of you.

I get what you're saying, but is context not a thing any longer? Was Gunn attacking with those tweets, or just trying too hard to make a joke (the tweet about Vegas, Rita Rudner, and Ed Hardy shirts was hilarious, though)? Fully agree that online bullying is a bigger problem than most people want to admit, but again, context. People need to realize that there is literally no way to prevent every single body from getting their feelings hurt from other people shooting off their mouths, unless you want to adapt controlled speech outlined by some governing body, and you can see for yourself how well that's working out for England. Disney can hire and fire whomever they want, but we're sliding up against constitutional issues here.

The Progressive Left has sowed the wind and now are reaping the whirlwind. They stupidly thought that the rabid dog they were unleashing wouldn't come around and bite them too.

all true but this guy is the one who pushed the Hillary is running a sex ring out of a pizza places basement. That didn’t even have a basement.

He should have no credibility to question anyone’s tweets. Shouldn’t even be allowed on social media. He incited violence. A guy actually pulled a gun in the pizza place and demanded the kids in the sex ring be let go.

No one needs credibility to assert demonstrable facts.

If Charlie Manson said that George Washington was America's first president, that wouldn't invalidate the information.

That's related to the corollary of the irrelevance of the bias of media publications if they're doing the same.

ie, 'on [date], [person] said [quote] about [other person or issue]'

- Can't believe you are citing MSNFOXHuffBreitPo for this!!!

Precisely. It’s even worse for them. They have to play by those rules they invented or see their movement die. So they end up eating their own again and again. Those outside of the prog circle aren’t as constrained.
