Guardians of the Galaxy Cast Writes Letter in Support of James Gunn

Guardians of the Galaxy Cast Writes Letter in Support of James Gunn
The cast of Guardians of the Galaxy has issued a letter in which they are showing support for fired director James Gunn. The cast includes Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Vin Diesel, Dave Bautista, Karen Gillan, Bradley Cooper, Sean Gunn, Michael Rooker and Pom Klementieff. Gunn was fired after old tweets of his had resurfaced in which the director jokes about pedophilia and rape. 

Pratt, who shared the letter via his Instagram account said, "Although I don't support James Gunn's inappropriate jokes from years ago, he is a good man. I'd personally love to see him reinstated as director of Volume 3. If you please, read the following statement - signed by our entire cast."

There is also a petition on Change.org that demands his re-hiring. The petition is calling for 500,000 signatures and as of this posting, the number is just over 340,000.00.  Below is the letter in full.
