James Gunn, director of fine movies such as Slither, Guardians of the Galaxy, and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 used to be a Twitter edgelord. The problem is when he stopped being a Twitter edgelord and decided to be a respectable movie director, he failed to go on Twitter and delete is edgy tweets.
Here are some of the tweets Gunn had infesting his Twitter feed up until yesterday:
He posted a lot more offensive crap, but this is a good representation of the spicy tweets James Gunn posted.
Did James Gun not have a social media person?
What I don’t understand other than why he would post any of this stuff to begin with, is why he didn’t hire a social media person to manage his online content. He’s now a famous movie director connected to Marvel Studios which is owned by The Walt Disney Company. Why he didn’t have someone scrub this stuff a long time ago makes me think he had a weird mental quirk that made him want to be caught.
He should have deleted all his old tweets as soon as he signed on to write and direct Guardians of the Galaxy. That’s what a normal human would have done. Then again, a normal human wouldn’t have posted any of this to begin with.
It’s San Diego Comic-Con time!
It couldn’t have come at a worse time for James Gunn. The San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) is taking place and he was scheduled to appear. I’m sure that’s not going to happen now. The SDCC is like the Daytona 500 for nerds. The Daytona 500 is NASCAR’s Super Bowl. The Super Bowl is the NFL’s FIFA World Cup. So obviously, right now is a terrible time for something like this to emerge.
It will be interesting to see if Marvel Studios fires him from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. As terrible and unoriginal as his edgelord tweets were, his movies are very good.
I wonder if James Gunn plays Magic: The Gathering. If he does, Wizards of the Coast will certainly ban him for life from organized play and Magic Online. It’s what they do now.
I was watching Ethan Van Sciver’s YouTube channel ComicArtistPro Secrets and someone in the live chat mentioned how ABC fired Rosanne Barr for a single tweet. Disney owns ABC and they also own Marvel Studios. Will they do the same thing to James Gunn?
Update Vol. 2
Disney has indeed fired James Gunn.
