Actor Chris Pratt quoted scripture in defense of filmmaker James Gunn after Disney Studios fired the “Guardians of the Galaxy” director over offensive tweets.
Many of the film’s stars, including lead actor Pratt, took to Twitter after the firing to share their support for Gunn.
“‘Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger.’ JAMES 1:19,” Pratt wrote with prayer hands, heart emojis and the name James all in caps, which led fans to believe that he was reacting to Disney’s decision.
Pratt plays Peter Quill, also known as Star Lord, and also appeared in the recent “Avengers: Infinity War.”
His co-star, Zoe Saldana, shared a bit more overtly on Twitter, writing, “It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie. I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term [sic]. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will.”
Marvel selected Gunn to direct “Guardians of the Galaxy” from its inception and the film became a major hit. Both part one and its sequel, which he also wrote and directed, have grossed more than $1.6 billion worldwide.
