James Gunn explodes against fans after asking to fire Chris Pratt

Despite criticism from some fans, Chris Pratt will not cease to be star lord. He has so declared James Gunndirector of the Guardians of the Galaxy saga, who has come out again in defense of the actor after the hate campaign that persecutes him in social media several years.

Although the filming of Guardians of the Galaxy 3 is about to end, some users of Twitter They still demand that another interpreter be found for the role of Star-Lord. One tweet in particular suggested that, given his apparent resemblance, the fellow Jurassic World star should be replaced by patrick wilsonactor who has appeared in sagas such as The Warren File or Aquaman.

A complaint that went viral and reached Gunn himself, who has replied with a forceful defense of the figure of Pratt. From his personal Twitter account, the director assures that the negative image that the marvel fans have of Pratt is nothing more than the result of “unfounded and completely false beliefs” that someone has invented to delegitimize the actor. Additionally, Gunn hints that if Pratt were to be replaced in the franchise, “the whole team would go with him.”

In response to another user in the same message thread, the principal also denies that Pratt attends a homophobic church. And it is that, her presumed belonging to a church with anti-LGBTQ practices and his also alleged links with white supremacist movements have been the most used arguments in his smear campaign.

“I know the church you currently attend. Do you?” (The answer is no, but you heard it from someone who heard it from someone who heard it from someone who went to that church, so you decided ‘Come on, okay, I’ll believe this terrible thing I’ve read online about this celebrity!)'” Gunn replies to the criticism.
