James Gunn 'Guardians' Director Fired ... Over Offensive Tweets

7/20/2018 12:58 PM PDT

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" series needs a new director ... Disney just fired James Gunn over a bunch of horrifically offensive tweets from years ago.

Gunn made comments about 911, AIDS, the Holocaust and rape. In one of the since-deleted tweets he said, "The best thing about being raped is when you're done being raped and it's like 'whew this feels great, not being raped!'"

In another he said, "I like when little boys touch me in my silly place." The Daily Caller first published the tweets.

Disney Chairman Alan Horn said Gunn's tweets "are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio's values, and we have severed our business relationship with him."

Gunn had already directed 2 'Guardians' films and was in the middle of prepping to start shooting the third in a few months.

For his part, Gunn said when he started out in the biz he saw himself as a "provocateur" who said outrageous things. He added, "My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over."

Cal Poly don't play when it comes to hate speech -- the University just REVOKED a scholarship for a star high school wrestler who was caught on camera using a homophobic slur while holding a Donald Trump campaign sign. 

The wrestling star is 18-year-old Bronson Harmon -- who scored a medal in the California CIF State finals and earned himself a scholarship to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo.

But now he's more famous for a 31-second video -- featuring Bronson and his father protesting at a Keep Families Together rally in Modesto on June 30.

Bronson was holding a Trump 2016 sign -- when he walked by immigrant rights protesters ... turned to a camera and yelled, "Fuck you f****t."

Another man -- reportedly Bronson's father -- screams, "Send their asses back."

Bronson allegedly shoved a man into a tree during that same protest.

The video was posted on social media and went viral -- eventually Cal Poly saw the clip and revoked his scholarship.

Bronson told the San Luis Obispo Tribune, "I totally regret it [the slur] ... I got caught up in the heat of the moment."

"I was there to peacefully protest the things that we believe, and people were harassing us, spitting on us and calling us Nazis."

Bronson says he still plans to attend Cal Poly as a student.

Matt joked that it's probably better than having the party in Vegas. 

After the game, people went nuts on Twitter -- some people called him sexist. One person took it a little too far.

"Man, I hope Matt Vasgersian gets beat the f*ck up by a group of tipsy bridesmaids. What a gigantic tool."

Danny Amendola Shades Belichick ... He Was Like A Principal

7/19/2018 9:42 AM PDT
Breaking News

Seems Danny Amendola hated playing for Bill Belichick ... 'cause he called the Patriots coach a "principal" with a "principal's office" -- and even insinuated he didn't want to play hard for him.

It all went down on the Barstool Sports' "Comeback SZN" Podcast ... when the Dolphins wideout was trying to compare his new coach, Adam Gase, to B.B. -- and he couldn't find enough differences.

"It's almost like coach Gase is one of the guys, one of the boys," Amendola says.

"And you want to fight hard for your boys. Back in New England, it's almost like you got a principal and a principal's office and sh*t like that."

Amendola's railing against Belichick -- a coach he played under for five seasons -- didn't stop there.

"[Gase] is our head coach, but he's also our boy. So, it's cool. It's refreshing to have that kind of relationship with a coach, something I haven't had in a long time."

FYI ... the Dolphins play the Pats twice next season, with the first matchup coming Sept. 30.

Can't wait.

A very powerful moment just went down at the 2018 ESPY Awards, as well over 100 sister survivors of sexual abuse by Larry Nassar joined hands on stage to receive the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.

On behalf of their fellow "army of survivors," Sarah Klein, Tiffany Thomas Lopez and USA gymnastics star Aly Raisman accepted the award. Each delivered a moving speech about the suffering caused by 30 years of abuse by the disgraced Team USA and Michigan State doctor ... and the courage it took -- by hundreds of women -- to finally bring him down.

As we reported ... Nassar was essentially sentenced to life in prison -- twice -- for sexual assault crimes, along with getting 60 years in his child porn case.

None of it would have been possible without these brave women standing up and speaking out, though ... and now they're leading the fight against abuse.

And as Lopez told the crowd ... "It feels like we're finally winning."
