Friends and fans of James Gunn are urging Disney to rehire “Guardians of the Galaxy” director

Guardians of Galaxy Director James Gunn firing: Friends and fans of “Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn are urging Disney to rehire the filmmaker, a rare moment in an era when bad behavior has gotten some of the biggest names in Hollywood summarily fired.

Actors including Zoe Saldana, Chris Pratt and Selma Blair have tweeted in support of Gunn, who wrote and directed both “Guardians” pictures and was working on a third. Some 228,000 people have signed a Change.org petition asking Disney to bring him back amid concerns that he was targeted by conservatives. It appears that Disney fell into a trap from alt-right activists because of Gunn anti-Trump comments.

A petition launched last Saturday asking Disney asking Disney to bring back the "Guardians" director amid concerns that he was targeted by conservatives already has 252.700 signatures and you can sign it HERE.
