I’m throwing in the towel. One hundred percent done defending James Gunn. I still don’t believe that he’s a pedophile, but he has so much strange shit swept under the rug that eventually, by the rule of odds, something under there will be on the deep end of heinously illegal, immoral, or both. Bad jokes, we’ve all told them. Weird parties, we’ve all been to one. Stuffing Asian midgets in small spaces for amusement and arousal just seems like the tip of the iceberg to a flawed human being.
I’m in no way being Mr. I Didn’t Get The Joke. I too enjoy questing after weird experiences from the Asian women I date. Have you ever had a lady love you long time with a mouth full of Pop Rocks hard candy? All I’m saying is that what appears to be James Gunn uncut is only the beginning of the rabbit hole. And people like Bautista refuse to bail on defending him. He’s about to lose his acting gig over a guy who couldn’t fit any more skeletons, or reluctant little people, in his closet if he wanted to.
Dave Bautista has cast doubt over his future in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
“It’s a bitter-sweet conversation because I’m not really happy with what they’ve done with James Gunn,” he said on the Jonathan Ross Show. “They’re putting the movie off. It’s on hold indefinitely. To be honest with you I don’t know if I want to work for Disney.”
Bautista was amongst the Guardians cast who signed an open letter supporting his re-hiring; he’s also made several comments on the matter, previously describing the prospect of working on the sequel without Gunn as “nauseating”.
I understand loyalty to your comrades is important. But falling on a sword for someone like James is a mistake. It’s tacit knowledge to never trust an adult with a live-action anime fetish and haircut that belongs on the lead singer of a 2000s era alternative band.
