Guardians of the Galaxy Director James Gunn Doesn’t Care if He Loses Fans for Bashing Trump

James Gunn isn’t just the acclaimed writer/director of films such as Guardians of the Galaxy, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, and the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Gunn is also a socially conscious political pundit who uses his social media platform to promote political causes. Most of the time, the cause in question is President Donald Trump, as was the case when Gunn took to Twitter this week to write:

The writer of Scooby Doo and Scooby Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed went on to ask:

And this prompted a common response from fans experiencing views they disagree with on Twitter:

But for Gunn, that doesn’t matter:

Perhaps Gunn has good reason to brush off the complaint. Gunn has never kept his political views a secret, and the entertainment media has no qualms about turning anything he tweets into a clickbait “news” article, but that hasn’t yet seemed to have a negative effect on the Marvel Cinematic Universe box office yet. Are Gunn’s movies simply so good that even those offended by his politics can’t help but pay to see them?

That’s a question outside the scope of a clickbait “news” article about some tweets, but you’re welcome to share your thoughts in the comments.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
