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

Honestly, if that Yondu B-story hadn't been there the movie would have fallen flat. I've never seen a story where the heroes were pretty much narratively passive the entire time.

I deleted twitter last week and somehow, I am amazingly free of alt right BS in my life.

Pretty sure Gunn joked about rape, essentially, he defended himself by saying he is constantly working on not being an angry angry survivor of sexual abuse himself. But then the thing which was the straw for Disney was a photo at a Halloween Party where he was dressed as a priest and on each arm was stereotypical schoolgirl outfitted ladies. The person that dug that photo up (who turned out to be an uber right-wing whack job, which isnt saying there arent those types on the left too) equated the photo to the rape joke scandal, saying Gunn was attending parties which glorified and themed on pedo behavior. Disney reacted fairly swiftly and canned Gunn before the truth about the photo just being a moment where people amazingly showed up to a legit Halloween party in get this... Halloween costumes... and then thought what a funny photo these particular three people would make.

 

Afterthought: I deleted my twitter months ago, after I lost my cool and told Trump to **** off. lol Oh my, so sordid and beyond the pale, I know. But still, for me... Anyway, Ive thought about social media a lot since, Ive concluded it appears to be best used for literal family and friends. Mass rando interaction is like drinking from a toilet.

 

Afterthought, part two: Not that Ive drank from a toilet before.

 

Afterthought, the special edition: Maybe not all family either, pretty sure we have that family member that we are all yeah, no about.
