Chris Pratt Reacts to “Guardians of the Galaxy” Director James Gunn’s Firing With Bible Verse


Living in the spotlight of stardom can be somewhat challenging, especially when a scandal erupts. That’s exactly what is happening as of late to actor Chris Pratt. Following the firing of James Gunn as the director of Pratt’s film “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” the star ended up using a bible verse to express his feelings about the entire situation.

 “’Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters. Let every person be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger,’” Pratt tweeted out on Sunday (July 22,) referring to the Bible verse JAMES 1:19. The tweet was then followed by both the heart and prayer hands emoji.

Of course, Pratt wasn’t the only star from the “Guardians of the Galaxy” franchise to take an indirect stand via their socials about the firing that occurred on Friday (July 20) after news surfaced that he had made concerning comments about rape and pedophilia in some old social media posts. Pratt’s co-star Zoe Saldana also made her feelings known.

 “It’s been a challenging weekend I’m not gonna lie,” she wrote in a tweet on Sunday (July 22.) “I’m pausing myself to take everything in before I speak out of term. I just want everyone to know I love ALL members of my GOTG family. Always will.”
