Guardians of the Galaxy's Michael Rooker Quits Twitter Amid James Gunn Firing

Michael Rooker, known for his work portraying Yondu Udonta in the first two Guardians of the Galaxy films, has quit Twitter amid the drama surrounding the firing of the movie’s director/writer James Gunn.

“This account will be inactive after today. We’re very tired & upset over the ongoing BULLSH*T… neither I nor my rep will use Twitter again. Twitter sucks and I want nothing to do with it. Thank you to all who gave kind words & support,” Michael posted.

While he didn’t expressly address James‘ controversy that got him fired, fans believe it to be the reason for his abrupt decision.

    James Gunn wrote jokes about r*pe, ped0philia, and people want him to get REHIRED??????? are you friggin kidding me???? have those people even looked at the tweets? NO ONE, NOWHERE, should be hired, if they have written trash like that.

    maybe Gunn should play nice so they dont reopen the investigation into him…that ended two months ago…whoops…I said it! BOOM:

    Twitter did not write the sh*t that James did so why blame twitter?? Delusional actors!

    I wonder if things are about to be reopened again and they doing this to stop shit hitting the fan. There is a line and he crossed so far over it and those who are wanting him rehired should have their heads read if they think he did nothing wrong and I get the feeling they are all gonna be fucked if this is true and it comes out. Let’s see them defending him then.
