The “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast continues to voice its support for James Gunn, who was recently fired by Disney after 10-year-old tweets surfaced in which he made jokes about rape and pedophilia.
“It’s sad. But it’s a part of our fabric now, and I get it,” Kurt Russell said to Variety at Netflix’s “Wild, Wild Country” Emmy celebration on Saturday night. “But I do think we’re getting a little too sensitive on maybe some of the wrong people.”
Last month, Disney severed its business relationship with Gunn after tweets that read, “I like when little boys touch me in my silly place” and “The best thing about being raped is when you’re done being raped and it’s like ‘whew this feels great, not being raped!’” were unearthed.
