‘Guardians 3’ Star Says Working for Disney Is “Pretty Nauseating” After James Gunn Firing

Dave Bautista on Sunday said he would appear in the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, but he is not happy about it.  A Twitter user asked the Drax actor if he would return to the Disney franchise after writer-director James Gunn was released from contract weeks ago after old, offensive tweets were resurfaced by Trump supporters.


Bautista — who, along with the rest of the cast, wrote an open letter asking Gunn be reinstated immediately — said he would play Drax once more, but simply because it is a contract obligation.


“I will do what I’m legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for,” the actor wrote on twitter. “GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn’t GOTG.”

In the same post, he took a jab at Disney.


“It’s also pretty nauseating to work for someone who’d empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis,” Bautista wrote. “That’s just how I feel.”


While all the main cast has commented on the situation, Bautista has been the most vocal about his disgust, sharing numerous tweets on the matter.
