Roseanne Barr is furious at the support 'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn has received after he was fired by Disney because of offensive Twitter posts he made many years ago.
Gunn helmed the two 'Guardians of the Galaxy' movies but he will not be returning to work on the third instalment in the franchise after a number of bad taste jokes he posted on the social media platform tweets between 2008 and 2012 were discovered in which he makes mocking comments about issues such as rape and paedophilia.
One of his tweets read: "I like when little boys touch me in my silly place."
Disney moved quickly to axed him from the Marvel Cinematic Universe but in the wake of his firing many of the films' stars, including Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana and Dave Bautista, came out in support of Gunn and an online petition calling for him to be reinstated has garnered over 250,000 signatures.
However, Roseanne is not defending Gunn and believes she received unfair treatment after being fired by ABC for a similarly offensive tweet and received little to no support.
