Alt-right conspiracy theorists digging up old tweets and creating a faux media outrage to get someone fired?! So unlike them.
The tweets were in poor taste, but not only had Gunn already apologized and deleted the tweets, Disney hired him AFTER the apology.
Really, the story is that the alt-right/gaters has learned that PR can get panicky easily, and has worked to exploit that by targeting the most outspoken and the most vulnerable of their critics.
Mike Cernovich (who frequently posts far worse) and all the either garbage people don't care about Gunn's decade old tweets; they just want him to shut up.
Seems like they are using what has worked so well for the Left, now.
And he didn't delete them til recently. Must have not upset him too much.
Yeah, it just all of a sudden became a problem for Disney because someone (Mike Cernovich) began resurfacing James Gunn's old tweets. I know the tweets are very old but at the same time they really are bad (as you say) and tasteless. I actually fully understand why Disney won't risk to become associated with the tweets.
Yea, really bad. The guy was obsessed with rape and pedophilia. He even linked a vid of underage girls "touching themselves." There was no joke included, just the link. He talked about walking around with a chub in front of a young girl to seem impressive.
Don't get me wrong, I have a dark sense of humor and enjoy off-color jokes, but this definitely crosses the line. Now, if he crossed the line every now and then, okay, but this obsession just sends warning bells off in my head.
This is what he wanted.....ge advocated for people to get fired for things they say *shrug*
Exactly. Live by the Twitter sword, die by the Twitter sword.
He also decided to jump into the SW defending, for some unknown reason. Stating that people who complain about the new SW films need therapy. I think someone who read his tweets at the time would say the same about him.
