'Guardians of the Galaxy' star Dave Bautista has described Disney as "nauseating" in a social media post addressing the recent firing of the franchise's director and writer James Gunn.
The 49-year-old actor has slammed the company for its treatment of the 'Guardians of the Galaxy' filmmaker, who was axed while working on the third instalment of the franchise due to offensive social media posts he made in the past.
Responding to a fan asking if he would be back for the third film, Bautista - who plays Drax in the Marvel Cinematic Universe - tweeted: "I will do what I'm legally obligated to do but @Guardians without @JamesGunn is not what I signed up for. GOTG w/o @JamesGunn just isn't GOTG.
"It's also pretty nauseating to work for someone who'd empower a smear campaign by fascists #cybernazis . That's just how I feel (sic)"
Outspoken white nationalist and conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich had pushed a campaign to get Gunn fired after promising to target his "enemies" by unearthing "fireable tweets".
