Marvel/Disney Director James Gunn in Twitter Flap

Here's Mike Cernovich on the tweets, which have now been mass deleted.

Here's the Business Insider recap.

"An Open Secret" is really pushing the tweets.

The tweets make a lot of taboo jokes, about the Holocaust and, especially, pedophilia.

I honestly do not have a problem with any of the jokes. They're edgy -- yes. But... so what?

What gives this more juice than it would otherwise have is the exchange at the end of Cernovich's post. There, a post to him says "You might enjoy this video," and links to a video calling itself "100 pre-pubescent girls touch themselves." Gunn responds, "Enjoy it? I came all over my face!"

But that's clearly a joke. As to the video itself, though no one dares click on it (as that would technically make you a sex criminal, assuming it was a pedo video), people are telling Ethan Van Sciver that 4chan people say they've clicked on it, or know what it is, and it's a misleadingly titled video that's supposed to be a joke. The claims is that it's a video of 100 schoolgirls singing the DiVinyl's "I Touch Myself" or something (which itself is kind of questionable, but... not pedophilia).


I'm not clicking on anything titled that either, so I can't say what the truth is.

What complicates this, of course, is that Disney fired Roseanne Barr for making a joke that the left claimed was racist, but will not, I assume, fire James Gunn for making pedophilia jokes.

Incidentally, I believe both Roseanne Bar and James Gunn. I think Roseanne Barr did not know Valerie Jarrett was black for a simple reason: Because I didn't know that myself.

She says she assumed Jarrett was Iranian; I believe that, because I assumed that too. I always heard of Valerie Jarrett's family's close relations to Iran; I assumed that meant they were Iranian.

I also think James Gunn was just making a lot of edgy jokes.

But Disney did fire Barr -- so should Gunn be spared the Social Justice whip?

Although one might say two wrongs don't make a right, let me explain the wrong I care about avoiding: the wrong in which liberals are permitted to say whatever they like without consequence, but where I will be fired and hounded out of civil society for saying the same sort of thing.

I will not put up with that, and yeah, I think I'll demand a bullshit firing of James Gunn, because I will insist on the #SameRules applying to both liberals and myself.

So yeah, fire this pedo-normalizing monster.
