The cinematographer lost his job because of tweets of a decade ago with jokes about pedophilia and rape.
Disney studio does not intend to re-hire the director of the Guards of the Galaxy James Gunn. The cinematographer was fired because he published a series of provocative tweets with jokes about rape and pedophilia. This is written by Variety.
It is known that the actions of the studio caused protests among the filmmakers’ colleagues. Many protested in his defense, signing an official letter asking him to return him to work.
“Both Disney and Marvel believe that dozens of so-called jokes about the pedophilia and rape that Gunn allowed himself are unacceptable in the era of fighting against harassment and do not coincide with the family image of Disney,” the newspaper quotes the insider’s words.
It is known that the reason for the scandal were posts that the director published in 2008-2009. The cinematographer also brought a public apology for his remarks.
Earlier it was reported that the creator of the Guardians of the Galaxy, James Gunn, uncovered the mystery of one of the characters.
