'Last Jedi' Director Rian Johnson Deletes Old Tweets After James Gunn's Firing

Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has admittedly deleted old tweets after what went down with Marvel director James Gunn.

If you don’t know, old tweets of James‘ resurfaced earlier this month and he was quickly fired as the director of Guardians of the Galaxy 3.

Rian apparently deleted tweets that were sent before January 25.

“No official directive at all,” Rian said in response to the implication that Disney told him to delete tweets, “and I don’t think I’ve ever tweeted anything that bad. But it’s nine years of stuff written largely off the cuff as ephemera, if trolls scrutinizing it for ammunition is the new normal, this seems like a ‘why not?’ move.”

Roseanne Barr Is 'Disgusted' Over Support James Gunn Is Receiving

Roseanne Barr is not happy with the support James Gunn is receiving for his deleted tweets about pedophilia.

Roseanne took to Twitter to write, “I’m disgusted to read all of the support for James Gunn’s pedophile jokes-as the same people supported blacklisting me for a joke they didn’t even understand.”

She, of course, referenced her racist tweet that caused her to get Roseanne cancelled by ABC.

If you missed it, James was fired from Guardians of the Galaxy after his tweets resurfaced many years later. He’s received support from Dave Bautista, Selma Blair, and more.

Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana have both spoken out on Twitter following the firing of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn.

Gunn was removed from the third film in the Marvel franchise after right-wing activists dug up some controversial tweets that the director wrote many years ago.

“It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie. I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will,” Zoe wrote.

Chris didn’t directly reference the controversy, but he tweeted out a bible verse from the book of James that deals with the issue.

“Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger,” he posted.

Their co-star Dave Bautista has already spoken out to support Gunn and a petition was started to reinstate him as the director of Guardians 3.

Selma Blair Defends James Gunn, Wants Marvel to Rehire Him

Actress Selma Blair is defending Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn after he was fired by Disney over offensive tweets from his past resurfaced.

Selma tweeted to James, “I thank you for your talent, your decency and your evolution as a man. You propped me up when I was in a scary place, and guided me towards the decent and right thing to do. You have shown strength of character more than most anyone I know. You understood.”

She then tweeted out a petition to try and get him rehired and added, “Because if people are punished despite changing, then what does that teach people about owning mistakes and evolving? This man is one of the good ones.”

Selma isn’t the only Hollywood celebrity to come to James‘ defense. Guardians actor Dave Bautista also spoke out in support of the director.
