    James Gunn was fired over tweets after calling for Roseanne to be fired ..... karma is a mean bitch...

    Michael Ian Black is about to get bounced too....the Trump Hater is about to meet Karma too...

    Nolte: Fired 'Guardians of the Galaxy' Director James Gunn Has Bigger Problems than 'Old Tweets'

    I believe in second chances, most especially for myself, and despise our current culture that allows social media mobs to dismantle lives and careers over bad words.

    But guess who disagrees with me?

    That would be James Gunn himself, who called for Roseanne Barr to be fired over a single terrible tweet.

    He has since deleted the tweet (Gee, I wonder why?), but on May 29, Gunn wrote, “I wish some of these so-called defenders of liberty would start to understand what freedom of speech is AND isn’t. Roseanne is allowed to say whatever she wants. It doesn’t mean @ABCNetwork needs to continue funding her TV show if her words are considered abhorrent.”

    And…

    On March 29, and only because she called someone a “whiner,” Gunn publicly called for the destruction of Laura Ingraham’s career via a boycott.

    “I hope @hulu stops advertising … on the Laura Ingraham show, so I can watch it. Online bullying & shaming of teenagers should not be supported by Hulu. Let them know,” he tweeted to his half-million followers.

    ----

    Gunn might have stopped joking about raping children, stopped joking about ass-raping his friends, about Mexicans, the Holocaust, AIDS, and how kiddie porn gives him an orgasm, but he only set aside those words in order to use the new words that built the petard he just hoisted himself on.

    Gunn built, energized, authorized, and whipped up the mob mentality that just dismantled what was, a mere 24 hours ago, one of the most promising careers in Hollywood.

    I don't condone Gunn's tweets, but Disney knew about them before they hired him to make the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

    He came clean about them and said he regretted them and had grown to be a better person. Yet now, after he made them a shit ton of money, they fire him for something they already knew about.

    /----/Gunn was right about Freedom of Speech. Rosanne has the right to say it but no one should be forced to pay for it or even listen to it. Roseanne made a bad joke and she apologize for it. There is no need to destroy her career.

    And Gunn has every right to criticize Ingraham for the same reason. It's his right to call for a boycott. It's my right to ignore him.

    As far as the rest of the things he said, I don't know anything about it but it sounds horrible.

    What karma? Disney already knew about his tweets BEFORE they hired him to make the first Guardians of the Galaxy movie. His tweets were on public record back then. The tweets were vile and a poor attempt at pushing the envelope humor that fell flat. Firing him NOW 4+ years after they already knew about it and hired him, isn't helping to save face for Disney.

    How do you know they knew about them? They went back to 2008 and some of them were replies. You'd have to go through a lot of tweets to get to them. Do you know for sure they knew about them or are you assuming they did?

    How do I know? I read... A LOT.

    There was an initial VERY public controversy about Gunn's tweets back in 2012, before Disney hired Gunn to direct Guardians of the Galaxy which was released in 2014.
