Dave Batista, who plays Drax in Guardians of the Galaxy, has stood up for director James Gunn, fired by Walt Disney. According to the actor's statement posted on his official Twiter page, he "is not satisfied with what happened."
"I have a lot to say, but right now I declare that James Gunn is one of the nicest, caring and nice people with whom I happened to meet. He is helpful and kind, both to people and to animals. Yes, he made mistakes. And who of us did not. I am VERY unhappy with what happened, "he wrote.
Recall that the management of Walt Disney suspended Gunn from work on the movie Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 due to his sarcastic comments, which were published in 2008 and 2009. They were discovered by the director's ill-wishers and reminded the public of them. This happened immediately after James Gunn criticized the current US President Donald Trump.
After his dismissal, Gunn himself admitted that he really allowed himself too sarcastic jokes on sensitive topics, but stressed that since then "he became a completely different person "and" no longer builds his career on the basis of provocations.
