James Gunn Explains Liking Alan Tudyk’s Tweet Defending Joss Whedon
Alan Tudyk’s tweet gets appreciated and entirely liked by James Gunn, in which he’s witnessed defending Joss Whedon.
At the request of actor Ray Fisher, James Gunn explains the motive behind his admiration for the Alan Tudyk tweet defending disgraced creator Joss Whedon for 2020.
The beloved director and creator behind shows like Buffy the Vampire Slayer and The Avengers, Joss Whedon’s fame has plummeted over the last few years due to allegations of abuse and racism.
The allegations go back to the year 2017, when his former wife Kai Cole published an essay that accused him of performative gender feminism while he was involved in numerous relationships.
But it wasn’t until 2020 when the debate about Joss Whedon’s lousy behaviour was brought to a larger audience.
Fisher was a character in the Justice League of the DCEU’s Justice League as Cyborg was the first to come forward this summer, claiming that Whedon was not professional and violent during the film’s shoot reshoots.
Many people defended him and shared the stories that they had written, such as Gal Gadot and Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Charisma Carpenter.
Some initially showed the support of Whedon and his character, including Firefly alumni Alan Tudyk. He tweeted that the actor “Wasn’t there, but I have known Joss for 17 years, I honestly can’t even imagine it and I have a pretty good imagination.”
Gunn was a fan of Alan Tudyk’s tweet that day, triggering some debate from those who thought Alan Tudyk was the Guardians of the Galaxy director supporting himself for Joss Whedon.
He didn’t address it in the past, but on the weekend, when he clarified another of his tweets that he liked, Fisher reached out to Gunn to ask for clarification.
“You got it,” Gunn wrote before noting the fact that Alan Tudyk apologized later for making comments about a matter which he wasn’t sure of.
The result was that James Gunn responded in the same manner, as Gunn said, “I read what Alan said & I thought, ‘Damn, he’s right.’
Since James Gunn posted his Tweet, Joss Whedon is again under the spotlight for an interview he conducted for NY Magazine.
The interview was released with the intent of providing Joss Whedon’s view with his view of the Justice League situation, but it appears to have prompted supporters to show their support for Fisher.
Joss Whedon said that Fisher was an actor who was not suitable as a bad actor in Justice League, which is what caused him to cut down Cyborg’s role.
Since Fisher has been the most prominent voice of opposition to Joss Whedon on social media and on social media, the criticism of his talents was another attack against Joss Whedon from a fan’s viewpoint.
The advent of technology has created a situation where it is difficult and more challenging to determine a person’s true motives because a single like could be interpreted to have multiple implications.
James Gunn’s case; he acted in a way that was instinctual that ultimately did not have any information about the circumstances.
It doesn’t mean that James Gunn is an unfit person or deserves to be punished for his erroneous actions.
Being fired briefly out of Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 because of tweets in the past, James Gunn probably knows better than most people how the internet can interpret things.
However, it’s pleasing to see that he’s willing to admit his mistakes respectfully.
