    The director of the successful “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, James Gunn, has been fired from the franchise’s third installment over offensive tweets about pedophilia and rape. >> Read more trending news  The shocking tweets, which had been taken down, aren’t new and Gunn had apologized for them in the past, but conservative media personalities resurfaced the posts from 2008 - 2011 this week, causing a backlash against Gunn, who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump. 'The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him,' Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said in a statement Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Gunn also issued a statement Friday, saying he’s a “very, very different” person than he was a few years ago and that he’s “developed as a person” since he posted the offensive tweets. 'My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative,' he said. 'I have regretted them for many years since — not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time.' “I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don’t anymore,” he said. >> Related: Disney: ′Star Wars Clone Wars′ will be back, announcement made at San Diego Comic Con Gunn was fired before a scheduled appearance Friday at Comic-Con International: San Diego.
