Hollywood thinks jokes about rape, pedophilia, 9/11, and the Holocaust are hilarious.

After director James Gunn’s high-profile firing from the upcoming “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” predictably, actors and celebrities have taken to social media to defend his indefensible behavior.

After all, hate speech can really only be committed by people Hollywood hates. Since Hollywood loves Gunn, what he says, even if it’s hate-based, is just fine.

After Disney announced that Gunn had been booted from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” for tweets joking about rape, pedophilia, 9/11 and the Holocaust, Gunn’s friends went into action.

Selma Blair tweeted in defense of the heartless director this weekend, urging Disney to rehire him and sharing a Change.com petition directed at Marvel.

Dave Bautista, who stars in the “Guardians” series also took to Twitter in support of the director saying, “What happened here is so much bigger then G3, @JamesGunn, myself, @Disney, etc.”

Note to Ms. Blair, Mr. Bautista, and the rest of Hollywood: Rape, pedophilia, 9/11, and the Holocaust are not laughing matters.
