GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY VOL. 2 Star Kurt Russell Comes To The Defence Of Fired Director James Gunn

The main cast members from the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise have already spoken out in defence of fired director James Gunn and now Kurt Russell is the latest to say he hopes he finds forgiveness.

While it doesn't appear as if Disney is planning on rehiring James Gunn to take the helm of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, actors involved with the Marvel Studios franchise continue speaking out to support the filmmaker. The latest is Vol. 2 star Kurt Russell, an actor who joined the franchise to take on the role of Ego the Living Planet. So, what are his thoughts on the entire situation involving Gunn?

"It’s sad. But it’s a part of our fabric now and I get it," Russell said in regards to recently resurfaced Tweets from the director featuring jokes about rape and paedophilia. "But I do think we’re getting a little too sensitive on maybe some of the wrong people." While Russell won't be returning to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he's now one of many actors to express a message of forgiveness.
 
"You have to realize that when you are in that world as a comedian, a writer, whatever you’re always stretching the boundaries and trying to find something which lead him to something that the world loves, which is Guardians of the Galaxy. He has a wonderful heart and a wonderful mind. I hope he is forgiven." Whether or not be will be remains to be seen and people seem to be divided right now.

There are those who believe it's ridiculous that Gunn is being punished for Tweets sent out years ago before he was hired to direct Guardians of the Galaxy, while others simply can't see past how awful the things he said were. What do you guys think? As always, share your thoughts in the comments section.
