Kurt Russell Defends James Gunn After Disney Firing

You can read his quotes below.

Dave Bautista has made his feelings about director James Gunn's termination very clear.

Gunn was recently removed from the third Guardians film by Disney after historic offensive joke tweets were dredged up on his Twitter account.

Speaking to the club's official website, the Liverpool manager said: "I knew that he would get stitches because we saw it on the pitch".

Gunn directed both of the first two and was booked to helm the third, but was sacked last month after offensive jokes he posted on Twitter several years ago were resurfaced by hardline Conservative pundits, ostensibly wanting to settle a score following Disney's firing of Roseanne Barr. Cast members are vocally supporting the director now on social media, and an open letter sent to Disney on July 30th, and signed by the entire main cast, expressed support for Gunn and asked for his reinstatement.

He added, " Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists", referring to the conservative personalities that uncovered the old tweets that got Gunn fired.

Add Kurt Russell to the list of "Guardians of the Galaxy" cast members to come to the defence of director James Gunn, who was sacked from the franchise by Disney after the resurfacing of some offensive tweets he issued almost a decade ago. Many are taking Disney's silence on the matter as evidence that they could re-hired Gunn, but as the weeks following his firing stretch on, that seems more unlikely.

And today, ShortList brings word of yet another twist to the tale; in his first interview since the whole debacle, Dave Bautista has threatened to quit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 unless Marvel Studios sticks with the original spec script submitted by Gunn.

Update: Bautista has now gone a step further. "I'd be doing James a disservice if I didn't". "This is bullsh-t. James is one of the kindest, most decent people I've met".
