From wikipedia

Quote

In July 2018, alt-right conspiracy theorist Mike Cernovich drew attention to tweets that Gunn wrote between 2008 and 2012, joking about topics like rape, child abuse, and pedophilia.[38]

Amid criticism of the tweets, Disney severed ties with Gunn. He was fired as director of the upcoming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3 film;[39] he was also dismissed from a role to help lead Marvel's planned "Cosmic Universe".[40] Gunn responded: "I have regretted [those jokes] for many years since. [...] Regardless of how much time has passed, I understand and accept the business decisions taken today. Even these many years later, I take full responsibility for the way I conducted myself then. All I can do now [is offer] my sincere and heartfelt regret [...] To everyone inside my industry and beyond, I again offer my deepest apologies."[39][41]

He’s doing both. Suicide Squad first, the GOTG

He apologized many times, so I'm fine with him being back.

He tweeted about touching little boys. He also followed and communicated with a well known pedophile through twitter. 

 

Edit: Here are some of his tweets.

He should've turned them down, his firing was stupid and unfair. Hopefully companies stop pandering to cancel warriors now

I mean the cancel culture is really dumb and if he apologized let’s move on but at the same time those “joke” tweets are just gross. Who thinks putting that on a public platform is okay?

It wasn't SJW's. It was literally started by a bunch of conservative MAGA heads trying to tap into SJW culture to discredit him because of how outspoken he is politically.
