Reading up on it, it seems that Gunn got hit because he joined a Twitter mob himself against Mark Duplass (whose crime is literally trying to bridge the partisan divide) who said nice things about Ben Shapiro and then took them back. So Disney heard an earful front the rightwing Twitter mob that jumped up after the leftwing Twitter mob took its scalp.
Disney knew about this years ago, they're just doing what all corporations do these days and buckling instantly when things get a bit hot. Some of it is warranted. Some of it is a person being a jerk a decade ago and there seriously needs to be a statute of limitations on how long you have to answer for something stupid you said.
I totally agree. I keep flipping back and forth.
If somebody took every off-color post I made in the Lando System between 1999 and 2005 and presented them en masse, I'd look like a psychopath.
