James Gunn from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3.
In fact, in the wake of Gunn's dismissal, Bautista, who plays
Drax the Destroyer in the films, tweeted that he finds working
for the global media powerhouse "pretty nauseating".
He has been an outspoken advocate of Gunn's on Twitter and has a
pretty strict no-nonsense approach on the site, previously
calling the dismissal "bullshit". Though the firing won't see
Bautista quit the production ("I will do what Im legally
obligated to do", he says), he didn't mince words on Sunday,
calling out Disney for empowering "a smear campaign by fascists
I will do what Im legally obligated to do but @Guardians
without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o
@JamesGunn just isnt GOTG. Its also pretty nauseating to work
for someone whod empower a smear campaign by fascists
#cybernazis . Thats just how I feel
@DaveBautista Love your support for @JamesGunn. Do you have any
plans or response if Disney doesnt reinstate him for GotG3?

He wasn't the only one discussing Gunn's dismissal this weekend,
with Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 star Kurt Russell telling
Variety, "I do think we're getting a little too sensitive on
maybe some of the wrong people."
On July 20, Disney fired Gunn as director after tweets from 2008
were resurfaced by a far-right commentator Mike Cernovich. Since
then, fans and industry figures have come out in support of
Gunn. The cast of the film then signed an open letter to have
Gunn reinstated as director of the third film on July 30.
CNET reached out to Disney for comment, but did not immediately
receive a response.
Disney is a homosexual pedophile corporation.
