    I guess Hollywood is determined to punish James Gunn:

    Gunn in talks to take on Suicide Squad 2

    That's not punishment. That's him telling disney "f you," because as long as they give him freedom, they are going allow him free lisence to kick ass and take names.

    Suicide squad changed their angle of publicity to mimic GotG.

    Nobody gets free license with franchise characters.

    So you're saying that James Gunn didn't get free lisence with Guardians of the Galaxy ?

    Dave Bautista is already angling to get in on SS2:

    Odd how one guy on Twitter with a grudge could almost completely derail a film that would likely have grossed hundreds of millions of dollars. The times we live in.

    I only open Facebook every couple of weeks, and I don't post anymore.
    I don't have an active Twitter or Instagram, don't have snapchat or any other social media.

    Why did this Twitter troll feel the need to go through ten years of tweets for this one person? Or is this just the highest profile person that has been thusly affected?

    This only underscores the "social media will bone you" possibilities.

    There's been more than a few people targeted. Here's a British article from The Guardian on it:

    https://www.theguardian.com/media/20...mon-james-gunn

    TL;DR: conservatives are angry about liberals getting conservatives fired over old events, want to turn the tables, made it an organized thing.

    The lesson I take from all of this is that if one ever is about to hit the big time, Purge your twitter. Because the next time you voice an opinion if it offends someone they will go find that joke you told all the way back when twitter was new.

    Now admittedly this does not stop an alt-right or alt-left group from using the Internet Wayback Machine.

    Of course not. Everything he did still had to be approved by higher-ups -- if Gunn wanted to turn Guardians of the Galaxy into a porn film, he wouldn't have been allowed to do it.
