Guardians of the Galaxy Star Dave Bautista on James Gunn: Whatcha Gonna Do When #Cybernazis Come for You?

By Bud
Dave Bautista

Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista has followed-up on his promise to defend former Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who was fired by Disney Thursday for tweets made close to a decade earlier which were surfaced as part of a campaign to get him fired from Disney. Gunn was targeted because of his vocal, some would say incessant criticism of President Donald Trump.


“The Animal” tweeted Friday:



I will have more to say but for right now all I will say is this..@JamesGunn is one of the most loving,caring,good natured people I have ever met. He's gentle and kind and cares deeply for people and animals. He's made mistakes. We all have. Im NOT ok with what's happening to him

And an Instagram post from Sean Gunn's about his brother's personal growth since the tweets that got him fired, which were made before Gunn was hired by Disney to make Guardians of the Galaxy in 2012.

It goes without saying that I love and support my brother James and I'm quite proud of how kind, generous, and compassionate he is with all the people in his life. Since he was a kid, it was clear he had a desire (maybe destiny) to be an artist, tell stories, find his voice through comics, films, his band. The struggle to find that voice was sometimes clunky, misguided, or downright stupid, and sometimes wonderful, moving, and hilarious. Since devoting his entire life to the Guardians movies and MCU six years ago, I've seen him channel that voice into his work and seen him transform from the guy who made up things to shock people. I saw firsthand as he went from worrying about “softening his edge” for a larger audience to realizing that this “edge” wasn't as useful of a tool as he thought it was. That his gift for storytelling was something better. I saw that he was more open-hearted than the guy who thought he needed to get a rise out of people by making nasty or offensive jokes (or whatever you choose to call them—I don't think his bluer material was ever his funniest and neither does Mom). And the best part is, this change in my brother was reflected in the change that the Guardians go through. I've heard my brother say many times that when Quill rallies the team with “this is our chance to give a shit”—to care—that it's the pep talk he himself needed to hear. It's part of what made working on the Guardians movies such a rewarding experience for the cast. We managed to find ourselves involved in a big-budget superhero movie that was, at its core, deeply personal. That's a gift. And that's why it's good. This isn't new information, by the way. It's all stuff that James has explained many times in interviews, in more detail and more eloquently. It's not some new spin. It's always been part of this story. So I guess my hope is that fans continue to watch and appreciate the Guardians movies, not despite the fact that the filmmaker used to be kind of a jackass, but because of it. They are, after all, movies about discovering your best self. Working on those movies made my brother a better person, and they made me one too. I'll always be proud of that. Peace.

Then it was time to cut a promo against the people who campaigned for Gunn's firing, calling them “cybernazis.”



What will you do when the #cybernazis attack you? Who will stand by you? Who will cowardly distance themselves from you? Who will punish you for horrible JOKES in the past instead of defending you for INSPIRING millions? MILLIONS!!! #Redemption #injustice @JamesGunn

Asked if he would consider boycotting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Bautista tweeted:



What happened here is so much bigger then G3, @JamesGunn ,myself,@Disney etc. This was a #cybernazi attack that succeeded. Unless we start to unite together against this crap, whether people are offended are not! …it's going to get much worse. And it can happen to anyone https://t.co/AMZEd0tfqb

https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js


And when one person accused the 5-time World Champion of something in a now-deleted tweet, Bautista responded:



If that's an accusation get a lawyer buddy! Because you're about to have your ass sued. Prepare to be penniless for the rest of your life https://t.co/1yPyQzcbZn


— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) July 22, 2018



https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js


Bautista also responded to a question about Gunn's friendship with writer and director Huston Huddleston, who pled guilty to child pornography charges last month.



No I can't. But I can say that Jared Fogle came and did an episode of Raw once. We all met him. We all shook his hand. And not one of us knew that he was the scummy piece of shit that he is. Or do you think we all knew?!! https://t.co/t4grIufyMq


— Dave Bautista (@DaveBautista) July 22, 2018



https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js


A decade-old tweet between Gunn and Huddleston was amongst those surfaced on social media as part of the organized campaign to get Gunn fired. Gunn apologized for the tweets, saying:



1. Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor.


— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 20, 2018

3. In the past, I have apologized for humor of mine that hurt people. I truly felt sorry and meant every word of my apologies.


— James Gunn (@JamesGunn) July 20, 2018



https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js



5. Anyway, that's the completely honest truth: I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don't anymore. I don't blame my past self for this, but I like myself more and feel like a more full human being and creator today. Love you to you all.

Meanwhile, a petition started Saturday asking Disney to rehire Gunn has garnered over 110,000 signatures as of the time of this writing. In addition to the tweet by Blair above, it has also been retweeted by director Joe Carnahan.

It goes without saying that I love and support my brother James and I'm quite proud of how kind, generous, and compassionate he is with all the people in his life. Since he was a kid, it was clear he had a desire (maybe destiny) to be an artist, tell stories, find his voice through comics, films, his band. The struggle to find that voice was sometimes clunky, misguided, or downright stupid, and sometimes wonderful, moving, and hilarious. Since devoting his entire life to the Guardians movies and MCU six years ago, I've seen him channel that voice into his work and seen him transform from the guy who made up things to shock people. I saw firsthand as he went from worrying about “softening his edge” for a larger audience to realizing that this “edge” wasn't as useful of a tool as he thought it was. That his gift for storytelling was something better. I saw that he was more open-hearted than the guy who thought he needed to get a rise out of people by making nasty or offensive jokes (or whatever you choose to call them—I don't think his bluer material was ever his funniest and neither does Mom). And the best part is, this change in my brother was reflected in the change that the Guardians go through. I've heard my brother say many times that when Quill rallies the team with “this is our chance to give a shit”—to care—that it's the pep talk he himself needed to hear. It's part of what made working on the Guardians movies such a rewarding experience for the cast. We managed to find ourselves involved in a big-budget superhero movie that was, at its core, deeply personal. That's a gift. And that's why it's good. This isn't new information, by the way. It's all stuff that James has explained many times in interviews, in more detail and more eloquently. It's not some new spin. It's always been part of this story. So I guess my hope is that fans continue to watch and appreciate the Guardians movies, not despite the fact that the filmmaker used to be kind of a jackass, but because of it. They are, after all, movies about discovering your best self. Working on those movies made my brother a better person, and they made me one too. I'll always be proud of that. Peace.

Then it was time to cut a promo against the people who campaigned for Gunn's firing, calling them “cybernazis.”



What will you do when the #cybernazis attack you? Who will stand by you? Who will cowardly distance themselves from you? Who will punish you for horrible JOKES in the past instead of defending you for INSPIRING millions? MILLIONS!!! #Redemption #injustice @JamesGunn

Asked if he would consider boycotting Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, Bautista tweeted:



What happened here is so much bigger then G3, @JamesGunn ,myself,@Disney etc. This was a #cybernazi attack that succeeded. Unless we start to unite together against this crap, whether people are offended are not! …it's going to get much worse. And it can happen to anyone https://t.co/AMZEd0tfqb

Bautista also responded to a question about Gunn's friendship with writer and director Huston Huddleston, who pled guilty to child pornography charges last month.



No I can't. But I can say that Jared Fogle came and did an episode of Raw once. We all met him. We all shook his hand. And not one of us knew that he was the scummy piece of shit that he is. Or do you think we all knew?!! https://t.co/t4grIufyMq

A decade-old tweet between Gunn and Huddleston was amongst those surfaced on social media as part of the organized campaign to get Gunn fired. Gunn apologized for the tweets, saying:



1. Many people who have followed my career know when I started, I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo. As I have discussed publicly many times, as I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor.

3. In the past, I have apologized for humor of mine that hurt people. I truly felt sorry and meant every word of my apologies.

5. Anyway, that's the completely honest truth: I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don't anymore. I don't blame my past self for this, but I like myself more and feel like a more full human being and creator today. Love you to you all.

Guardians of the Galaxy Star Dave Bautista on James Gunn: Whatcha Gonna Do When #Cybernazis Come for You?

Guardians of the Galaxy star Dave Bautista has followed-up on his promise to defend former Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, who was fired by Disney Thursday for tweets made close to a decade earlier which were surfaced as part of a campaign to get him fired from Disney. Gunn was targeted because of his vocal, some would say incessant criticism of President Donald Trump.
