Following the disappointing news over Disney firing James Gunn for offensive tweets he made a decade ago (and apologized for before working for the company), a petition has been open created on change.org to re-hire the director.
‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ fan Chandler Edwards created this petition four days ago.
”I agree on the point that if people say a bunch of stupid shit while working for a studio, the studio has full right to fire him over the possible controversy. This situation is very different though as he made these jokes years before he was working for Disney and also the fact that they were jokes. I agree with most, including Gunn himself that the jokes were shitty and un-funny but they were still jokes, it wasn’t an opinion or a statement, it was just a bad attempt at being funny.”
Edwards also states in the petition description that if Disney is going to react this way towards Gunn, that they must do it with all the other directors who most likely made a poor joke sometime in their life.
