Bautista sides with his "Guardians of the Galaxy" director in the wake of his firing.
The former pro wrestler surprised many with portrayal of an affable giant in Disney's Guardian of the Galaxy franchise, so much so that he appears to have one the public's approval for a full-time switch. The latest news regarding the firing of James Gunn has put the future of the franchise in doubt. Bautista is one person who disapproves of the decision. He made his feelings known via Twitter last night.
Baustista went ahead with his character defense letter, painting his former director as "one of the most loving,caring,good natured people" he has ever met. Bautista elaborate upon his statement by forgiving his past "offences" in a matter of speaking: "He’s gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. He’s made mistakes. We all have."
The ex-WWE peformer ended hit letter with strong consternation directed at his employers Walt Disney Studios. In short he added, "Im NOT ok with what’s happening to him," an opinion that will certainly make things stickier on the job.
Disney unceremoniously fired James Gunn yesterday after discovering "offensive" Tweets he'd published between 2008-2009, the contents of which are grouped together at the bottom of the page. Gunn was in the writing phase of the script for Guardian of the Galaxy 3.
As of this moment, it's unclear how Disney wishes to proceed or fill the vacancy opened up by his dismissal.
