Actor Dave Bautista, who plays Drax from the Guardians of the Galaxy, has again criticized Disney’s dismissal of James Gunn and said it was a personal matter.
“I’m not happy with what they did with James Gunn. I don’t want to delve into it, I don’t want to have a political conversation. They’re putting the film on permanent pause, indefinitely. I have a problem with that, I have a moral problem and political with what they did “.
“I have been very clear about how I feel and I am not afraid to admit how I feel. That’s how I feel”.
The actor concluded by stating that it is a personal matter “I struggled, I went hungry for three years, I could barely get a job. Few people believed me on this path, but it was James who really changed the course of my life. I love James. It changed my life, so this is personal too “.
Understand the case:
The director had made old tweets with jokes that talked about rape, pedophilia and other controversial topics.
Gunn spoke up apologizing and claiming that he changed: “Many people who have followed my career from the beginning know that I saw myself as a provocative person, making films and telling jokes about outrageous topics and taboos. As I have spoken openly before, I developed as a person, as well as in my work and in my mood! I am a very different person. Anyway, this is the truth: I used to make offensive jokes. I don’t do it anymore. “.
In Gunn’s resignation statement, Disney stated: “The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’s Twitter are unjustifiable and inconsistent with the studio’s values, so we ended our professional relationship with him.”
