Other deleted tweets see Gunn poke fun at the overly-masculine attitude of films like The Expendables, and the womanizer persona of Oscar winner Jared Leto. The Expendables was so manly I f**ked the s**t out of the little p**sy boy next to me!, he wrote. The boys ARE back in town! Gunn commented on a tweet made by actor Dylan Sprouse, which read: Yo @jaredleto now that youve slid into the DMs of every female model aged 18-25, what would you say your success rate is? Gunns response: He starts at 18 on the internet? Check out screenshots of the original tweets above.
In an isolated tweet from 2009, Gunn tweeted @peteralton and wrote: I like it when little boys touch me in my silly place. Shhh! Many Twitter users and fans of the directors work have reacted negatively to these tweets. Listen, GOTG Vol. 2 helped me get through one of the hardest times in my life last year, when I was depressed, suicidal, and could hardly get out of bed in the morning, wrote one user. But even I will not defend what James Gunn said. Its not okay on any level. Other users were more blunt in their disdain for Gunns remarks, and felt that Marvel Studios, as well as Disney, who owns Marvel, should hold him accountable. So is everyone gonna boycott future Guardians movies because James Gunn making gross pedophilr [sic]/rape jokes things on Twitter?, asked one fan. And then boycott those actors who continue to act in movies with him? And all of Marvel for continuing to hire him? It was late announced that Gunn would not helm the third installment in his Guardians franchise. Gunn went on to apologize the offensive nature of these tweets, and stated that he has never engaged in any such behavior in his own life.
As I have discussed publicly many times, as Ive developed as a person, so has my work and my humor. Its not to say Im better, but I am very, very different than I was a few years ago; today I try to root my work in love and connection and less in anger, he continued. My days saying something just because its shocking and trying to get a reaction are over.
