Dave Bautista Calls Out Disney With Video of Troll That Targeted James Gunn.

Actor Dave Bautista calls on both Disney and the professional troll who is responsible for firing James Gunn at Guardians of the Galaxy 3, by sharing a video in which the troll confesses that he orchestrates false slander campaigns. While all Guardians of the Galaxy main actors have expressed their support for Gunn in recent weeks, Bautista has become the director’s most vocal lawyer online, repeatedly hitting both Disney and the ‘Cybernazis’ that led the movement to see Gunn fire.

The controversy began at the height of Comic-Con 2018, when several conservative bloggers wrote about a series of tasteless jokes Gunn made about pedophilia and rape on his personal social media more than a decade earlier. Gunn formally apologized and said that while he used shock humor in his comedy, he had turned a new sheet and deeply regretted his earlier remarks. Disney still sacked Gunn immediately, despite exactly the same kind of jokes raising the controversy between liberal and feminist groups – and Gunn formally apologized for them – when he was originally hired by the company in 2012. Since then, many have come to believe that Gunn was targeted because of his open disapproval of President Donald Trump and that Disney reacted excessively because of the fear of being unbalanced after firing the conservative comedian Roseanne Barr about a racist comment on her Twitter account.

This is certainly the belief of Bautista, who once again criticized Disney in a recent tweet, which can be viewed below. Bautista has shared a video in which Michael Cernovich – one of the bloggers behind the focused legal efforts that Gunn has unmasked – is proud of his skills in making hithits. Sensitive viewers should be alerted that this video contains graphic language.

The original video was posted by Officer Vic Berger IV – a Twitter user who describes the crimes of Cernovich against various purposes. “Nobody does a hit like I can,” says Cernovich, before describing how he deliberately makes fake stories about people and does not matter what kind of damage he causes. Cernovich then invites a certain user to prosecute him for slander and says that the truth does not matter once public opinion turns against them.

Cernovich is a well-known conservative conspiracy theorist and antifeminist, most famous for serving as a guest host at the Alex Jones Show. He is also known for his authorship of Gorilla Mindset – a self-help book for men based on the idea that all women really want to be run by a man. Since he was after Gunn, many of Cernovich’s writings have come back to haunt him. Comedians such as Patton Oswalt have shared several recent tweets from Cernovich – many of which contain homophobic, racist and sexist slogans that are far worse than what Gunn once said as a joke.

Although Bautista’s defense of his friend and willingness to call for bullying is admirable, it is unlikely that he will change the attitude of Disney, let alone Gunn is re-appointed as Guardians of the Galaxy 3 director. For good or bad Disney seems to have made their choice.
