Hollywood hypocrisy has struck again after entertainment giant Disney reversed itself and re-hired director James Gunn who had previously been fired over a series of tweets that some would say showed that he had a bizarre fascination with pedophilia.
The director of the Marvel Comics franchise “Guardians Of The Galaxy” franchise’s “old” tweets came to light last year, driving him to go on a deleting spree as well as to issue an apology for how he used the now ubiquitous microblogging platform prior to Trump’s election.
Here’s a sample:
Despite their constant virtue signaling, celebs howled in despair after Gunn was sacked with many of them demanding that he be rehired, a predictable double standard when compared to how Roseanne Barr was treated.
So what did Disney do?
Let it all die down and then bring him back just in time to direct the latest installment of the Marvel Comics franchise.

It appears that Disney has forgiven director James Gunn for his having previously joked about little boys touching him in his “silly place” and has hired him back to direct the third installment of “Guardians of the Galaxy,” reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Despite outspoken support for Gunn from fans and the “Guardians of the Galaxy” cast, Disney ultimately reaffirmed its decision to fire Gunn. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has now reversed the decision they previously affirmed reportedly because the studio had trouble finding a replacement director to the point of the project being put on hold.
“Marvel Studios put ‘Guardians 3’ on hold, though Marvel head Kevin Feige and others involved have maintained they intended to make the film happen,” reports The Hollywood Reporter. “In the weeks after firing Gunn, Disney began putting feelers out for new directors. But by mid-fall, the search seemed to have petered out, with many thinking that the project was on the back burner. What almost no one knew was that Marvel/Disney had gone back to Gunn and made a deal … in secret, according to insiders.”

Once again, it’s “do as we say” not “do as we do” when it comes to the political left.
