Alt-right asshole Mike Cernovich dug up a lot of offensive tweets (now deleted) from early in James Gunn’s career with jokes about rape and pedophilia (recall, Gunn was a Troma guy, and he directed Slither), and as a result, Disney has decided to fire him from the Guardians franchise, so reports Deadline.

James Gunn has apologized for the tweets.

The firing was confirmed in a statement released by Disney.

I don’t know what else to tell you.
