Following James Gunn’s firing from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” by Disney, Sean Gunn — who appeared in the franchise’s first two movies — has taken to Twitter in defense of his brother. Beginning by clarifying that “it goes without saying that I love and support my brother,” Gunn addresses his brother’s off-color humor and asserts that “working on these movies made my brother a better person, and they made me one too. I’m proud of that.”

The younger Gunn isn’t alone in his support of his writer/director sibling, as fellow “Guardians” actor Dave Bautista tweeted yesterday that he’s “not OK” with what’s happened and a petition calling on Disney to re-hire him has already garnered more than 53,000 signatures.
