Chris Pratt, Bradley Cooper, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, and five other key Guardians of the Galaxy cast members have penned an open letter in support of James Gunn, the writer/director who brought the franchise to the screen and returned for the sequel.
Disney terminated Gunn over a week ago, after he faced backlash for a series of unearthed problematic tweets making remarks about pedophilia and rape.
“We fully support James Gunn. We were all shocked by his abrupt firing last week and have intentionally waited these ten days to respond in order to think, prey, listen, and discuss,” the letter begins, also hand-signed by Vin Diesel, Karen Gillan, Michael Rooker, Pom Klementieff, and Sean Gunn (James’ brother as well as a GoTG actor). “In that time we’ve been encouraged by the outpouring of support from fans and members of the media who wish to see James reinstated as director of Volume 3 as well as discouraged by those so easily duped into believing the many outlandish conspiracy theories surrounding him.”
