THE BEST OF JAMES GUNN'S NOW-DELETED(!) TWEETS
WIKI: James Francis Gunn Jr. (born August 5, 1966) is an American filmmaker, actor, novelist, and musician. He started his career as a screenwriter in the mid-1990s, writing the scripts for Tromeo and Juliet (1996), The Specials (2000), Scooby-Doo (2002) and its sequel, Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed (2004), and the 2004 version of Dawn of the Dead. He then started working as a director, starting with the horror-comedy film Slither (2006). He subsequently wrote and directed the web series James Gunn's PG Porn (2008–09), the superhero film Super (2010), and the Marvel Cinematic Universe film Guardians of the Galaxy (2014) and its sequel, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017).Nearly two dozen tweets were unearthed in Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn's Twitter feed in July. Screen grabs of the tweets, which have since been deleted, are shown BELOW:
Firing from Disney and reinstatement
In July 2018, alt-right conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich drew attention to tweets that Gunn wrote between 2008 and 2012, joking about topics like rape, child abuse, and pedophilia. Amid criticism of the tweets, Disney severed ties with Gunn. He was fired as director of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 film; he was also dismissed from a role to help lead Marvel's planned "Cosmic Universe". Bobcat Goldthwait, who worked as a voice actor on the 1997 Disney film Hercules, responded to the incident by asking Disney to remove his voice from an upcoming park attraction based on the film.

Annegret Kramp-Karrenbauer. The woman with the excellent sence of humor!
"Wer war denn von euch vor Kurzem mal in Berlin? Da seht ihr doch die Latte-Macchiato-Fraktion, die die Toiletten für das dritte Geschlecht einführen", sagte Kramp-Karrenbauer bei ihrem satirischen Auftritt am Donnerstag im baden-württembergischen Stockach am Bodensee. "Das ist für die Männer, die noch nicht wissen, ob sie noch stehen dürfen beim Pinkeln oder noch sitzen müssen. Dafür, dazwischen, ist diese Toilette."
Frau Kramp-Karrenbauer said in her satirical performance in Stockach on Bodensee:
"Who was in Berlin recently? You see the Latte-Macchiato fraction introducing toilets for the third sex. This is for the men who do not know yet, whether they may still stand while peeing or have to sit. Therefor, in between, is this toilet."
