James Gunn Fans Want Him Back on Guardians of the Galaxy 3
Previously, James Gunn was fired from Disney after a series of old tweets about pedophilia and rape resurfaced. Back then, the decision was met with great criticism from fellow celebrities and public. Common opinion had it that James Gunn was now a much better and grown person. But even then, Disney remained firm on this announcement. However, his fans are now going to all possible heights to get Disney to rehire him for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. And considering the steps they are taking, it seems like the company will soon have to give in!
Will Disney Rehire James Gunn?
A lot many fans are protesting to ensure that they make Disney rehire James Gunn for the upcoming franchise. A group of fans initiated a GoFundMe page. And that’s responsible for setting up a billboard four miles from the Disney World. Interestingly, the billboard reads,
Save the Galaxy: James Gunn for Vol. 3.
This campaign was started by the same group of fans that began the now dysfunctional RehireJamesGunn.com which generated almost $5000 dollars. It also managed to generate money to pay almost $4,000 to run the digital billboard until Nov. 25. After this stunt, the fans now hoped that they would buy a more expensive sign which will be even closer to the Disney world. The local residents are able to see the billboard at 13541 Newhope Street in Orlando. And the billboard is clearly visible from the 22 eastbound freeway.
Numerous campaigns and petitions have made their way up. But nobody is still quite sure if Disney will rehire James Gunn for Guardians of the Galaxy 3. Although that won’t be a very poor choice. The man clearly is extraordinarily talented. And has also apologized for his previous remarks admitting that they were failed and unfortunate efforts at humor. So holding him against it might not seem very appealing. Plus, his fans will surely get a way to make the network rehire their hero!
