In an interview with CBM, Kurt Russell came to the defense of director James Gunn, who was fired by Disney from Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 after tweets joking about pedophilia and rape resurfaced last month.

He said: “It’s sad. But it’s a part of our fabric now and I get it. But I do think we’re getting a little too sensitive on maybe some of the wrong people. You have to realize that when you are in that world as a comedian, a writer, whatever you’re always stretching the boundaries and trying to find something which lead him to something that the world loves, which is Guardians of the Galaxy. He has a wonderful heart and a wonderful mind. I hope he is forgiven.
