‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ director James Gunn was done dirty by America’s politically charged court of public opinion … according to Chris Pratt, Vin Diesel, Zoe Saldana and the rest of the ‘GotG’ stars.
The cast posted an open letter in support of Gunn, who Disney fired from the franchise in response to old tweets where he made several highly inappropriate jokes.
In the letter they vouch for his character, accept his apology and hint Disney only canned him because it feared public backlash.
In the letter — also signed by Bradley Cooper, Dave Bautista and Michael Rooker — they don’t exactly demand Disney rehire Gunn.
It seems they’ve accepted Disney’s move, but insist he’s not done in Hollywood, and they’re looking forward to working with “our friend James again in the future.”
