Amidst the massive support of the Guardians of the Galaxy by its entire cast, there are a few MCU actors who are not really in favour of “rehiring” Gunn. As discovered by a Twitter user, both Chris Evans and Chris Hemsworth have silently unfollowed Gunn’s twitter account.
Over the years, twitter follows between big actors and directors of big franchises have become a sort of calling card to fans. These follows give fans film and casting rumours, even before they’re announced officially. So obviously, two big MCU stars unfollowing Gunn would have a negative effect on the audience and well, it doesn’t stop fans from jumping into conclusions but actually, WE have NO idea as to why they’ve actually unfollowed him.

Gunn has never directed a film starring Hemsworth or Evans, so we’re assuming that their relationship with Gunn would be more on a “friend of a friend” level, at least professionally speaking. This entire controversy surrounding Gunn’s offensive tweets from ten years ago about rape and pedophilia has made a large split between fans and celebrities where many are in support of him while a few aren’t. Whatever Hemsworth and Evans’ personal views on this might be, we’re hoping that they keep those views separate from their public personas as superhero icons.
This has followed with a lot of celebrities in the entertainment industry deleting their old twitter posts and well, you can’t blame them for this: no one wants to throw their career away over a tweet!
