Bobcat Goldthwait Wants His Voice Removed From a New Disneyland Attraction in Protest of James Gunn Being Fired

Comedian Bobcat Goldthwait isn't happy with Disney firing his friend James Gunn from directing Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. So, he's protesting their decision by asking the studio to remove his voice from an upcoming attraction at Disneyland. That attraction is World of Color - Villainous where he reprised his role as Pain from Hercules. He said on Instagram:

"I love James Gunn. He’s a loyal friend, super talented, passionate and kind. I wanted to say something, here it is: Dear Disney, I would hate for you to come off as hypocritical, so I’m suggesting that you remove my voice from an attraction that’s coming to your park. It’s called WORLD OF COLOR – VILLAINOUS, and I reprise the tole of Pain, a role I played in Hercules."

He went on to say:

"You see here’s the deal. Years ago I made a lot of sarcastically shocking and offensive jokes. Many that I’m embarrassed about now, and I’d hate to make you guys look bad seeing that I’m openly critical of the president and his administration, and you seem to be taking your lead from some of his radical fringe supporters."

It's true if you're familiar with Goldthwait's comedy, you know his stuff is completely filthy! Funny, but filthy. There are a lot more people who have been involved and associated with Disney that have done far worse than what Gunn has. Hell, Robert Downey Jr. had one hell of a crazy dark past, but they don't have any problem working with him! 

Disney probably should have thought their decision through a little more before they pulled the trigger.
