Yep Johnny Depp is still getting jobs with them despite his domestic abuse so Disney comes off rather disingenuous here. Either they didn't do their due diligence when they hired Gunn or more likely they did but didn't give a fuck about his comments and now are throwing him under the bus to save face.

A shitton of people are getting vocal about it now, largely centered on the main cast who works with him:

- https://twitter.com/karengillan/stat...24853062418432
• Dave Bautista's been VERY vocal about it: https://twitter.com/DaveBautista
• Selma Blair linked an excellent article: https://twitter.com/SelmaBlair/statu...07902479740928
• Sean Gunn made a whole thread: https://twitter.com/seangunn/status/1020786565344382978

I'm glad that this whole thing isn't being forgotten about after a day, like so many other twitter based rages.

Fingers crossed that now that the Fox acquisition merger thing is done that they'll address this, since the quick action and silence makes sense since they cared a LOT about getting across that finish line.

And there we go. Now that the deal's done, the ENTIRE CAST just signed an open letter asking for him to be reinstated as the director of the third film: https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/he...rector-1130696

Glad to see they released a statement. Wonder if Disney will respond at all though.

It's gonna be DAMN hard for them not to address something like that by the main cast of the film, especially since everyone who follows any of the actors on their individual social media accounts are gonna see it, not to mention all the articles showing up.

There's no way that the press isn't gonna ask about it if they try and silently dodge the question, so they're almost CERTAINLY gonna have to have a formal response of some kind. I wouldn't expect it immediately, but I'm DEFINITELY expecting one.

Also, this comment is the best summary on matters that I've yet seen: https://io9.gizmodo.com/1827972960

The Editor-In-Chief of the Disney Insider tweeted that it looks like Disney are taking their time, but look to be sitting down with James Gunn to discuss things and reinstating him seems to be a possibility: https://twitter.com/Skylerhxc/status...16613548548096

Another really great article talking about the fact that it's kind of hyporcritical to build an enormous amount of wealth on an entire movie franchise showing that people can change to be better, but then refusing to believe that's true in the real world: http://observer.com/2018/08/disney-j...heros-journey/

Dave Bautista continues to be the incredibly vocal center of the cast about this issue, and isn't mincing words even a little bit about the situation.

didn't disney confirm they're not hiring him even after the outrage? at this point i don't even care if he's hired or not, what's great is that he's getting all of this support.

also, great article, but i must pry on the tidbit when the author blamed henry for "confusing" casual flirting with rape. what he said was as clear as day and yet people still insist on twisting his words. what he simply meant was that the "chase" of a woman could be seen as rape or harassment in today's society, not that it was. imagine if he was interested in cameron diaz, and she said no to him. this time he's not giving up, and visits her house a week later with honest intentions. imagine the stories online. "Harry insists on invading Diaz' privacy even after she told him no" or something like that. that's why he said no thanks, he doesn't want that.
