[Movies] Guardians of the Galaxy Director Apologizes For Gay Slur-Riddled Blog Post
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 11.30.2012



James Gun has apologized for a blog post he wrote a couple of years ago titled "The 50 Superheroes You Most Want to Have Sex With." Gunn, who is directing Guardians of the Galaxy, wrote the (now-deleted) post on his blog after he had readers vote on which superheroes, male and female, that they would like to sleep with. His commentary on them included referring to Gambit as a "fruit," noting in the Flash's entry that if he was having sex with a man that "I too would want it to be by someone who would get it over with quick," hoping that someone can "turn" Batwoman from being a lesbian to being straight and more. You can see the blog entry thanks to Google (warning: NSFW language) here.

Gunn posted the following apology to his Facebook page:

A couple of years ago I wrote a blog that was meant to be satirical and funny. In rereading it over the past day I don't think it's funny. The attempted humor in the blog does not represent my actual feelings. However, I can see where statements were poorly worded and offensive to many. I'm sorry and regret making them at all.

People who are familiar with me as evidenced by my Facebook page and other mediums know that I'm an outspoken proponent for the rights of the gay and lesbian community, women and anyone who feels disenfranchised, and it kills me that some other outsider like myself, despite his or her gender or sexuality, might feel hurt or attacked by something I said. We're all in the same camp, and I want to do my best to make this world a better place for all of us. I'm learning all the time. I promise to be more careful with my words in the future. And I will do my best to be funnier as well. Much love to all - James


There is no indication at this time that his job directing Guardians of the Galaxy is in jeopardy.
