Just weeks after Batista came to the support of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn, following the unearthing of controversial tweets several years ago, the ‘Animal’ has once again taken to Twitter to voice his displeasure with Disney for firing the filmmaker.
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 isn’t GOTG. Its also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis . That’s just how I feel https://t.co/Ym4FwruVDu

This continues a very heated debate of whether the firing was justified, with many using the argument that they were just bad jokes that he has apologized for and people shouldn’t be punished for things they said in the past.
The former World Heavyweight Champion has been very critical of President Donald Trump and very politically outspoken recently on social media, leaving many wondering what is next for the ‘Animal’ after he wraps on Guardians of the Galaxy 3.
