The actor stood up for the filmmaker on Twitter.
“James Gunn is one of the most caring and kind people I have ever met. He is polite, kind and cares about people and animals. He’s made mistakes. We all did them. I don’t agree with what was happening to him now,” wrote Battista.
In the comments to the post of artist users ‘ opinions were divided. Some members agreed with Batista and said that the joke about pedophilia is not the same as pedophilia. Others felt that the jokes about pedophilia legitimizing it in the eyes of society and therefore inadmissible.
