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 don't tweet or Facebook. I realized the way the world was going years ago so I backed the **** out of that bull. So as long as nobody ever looks at this place, where I've said some pretty ****ed up disgusting shit, I'm gonna be ok.

It's like that South Park episode where there's a huge threat to reveal everyone's internet search history and it sends South Park into a mass panic.

my former employer knew about this place and that I was BigRedChief. I'm not ashamed of anything posted on here so they were good.

The right is now weaponizing political correctness against celebrities.

Dan Harmon also deleted his twitter after an old video of him mock raping a baby doll was found. So who knows about rick and morty now.

I like GotG and it was good BECAUSE of Gunn... but I can't feel too sorry for him. He's one of many who has supported this climate of calling people out for bad jokes and getting them fired. Hell, I think gunn even agreed with his own firing.

Society is going to get really boring in this snitchy call out culture.

This has nothing to do with trolling or harassment.

This is about a family friendly company firing someone because he made awful pedophile jokes before they had even hired him.

I personally find pedo jokes offensive, but that doesn't mean they're inherently offensive. The fact that he was engaging with someone convicted of child pornography doesn't help his case in the slightest.

Look, if you're unhappy about political correctness and call out culture I'm with you.

If you're selectively opposed to it when your ox is gored, you're part of the problem.

Bottom line is Trump isn't employed by Disney. I'm sure they would have fired him.

Something is fishy about this whole thing.
It doesn't matter how old it was because most people didn't know.

Now that a hate mob has made it viral, it is what it is.

It's hard to take a position of "Race jokes are bad, but jokes about ****ing kids are acceptable."

That's a hard line to sell anyone with a functioning brain. This call out PC culture is toxic as ****.

"What if this power was given to the worst possible person?" is something everyone should consider.

Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules. It's as if we've seen that suggested and implemented before.
