Disney removed the director after his tweets made several years ago were unearthed.

James Gunn, the director of both Guardians of the Galaxy movies, has been removed as director for the third installment following outrage over offensive tweets he made several years ago.

"The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James' Twitter feed are indefensible," Walt Disney Studios said in a statement.

"[They are] inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him."

The decision was made despite Gunn removing the tweets in question and apologizing for them, according to a BBC report.

The director reacted to the news in a series of new tweets, in which he once again apologized and insisted the he is now a "very, very different man than [he] was a few years ago."

"I viewed myself as a provocateur, making movies and telling jokes that were outrageous and taboo," the tweets read. "I am very, very different than I was a few years ago."
