There have been a few celebrities that have gotten themselves in hot water over Tweets that they’ve posted online years ago. Guardians of the Galaxy 1 and 2 director James Gunn was fired from the third film in the franchise because of rape jokes that he posted years before Disney hired him to direct the first movie. Somehow something he said years ago got him fired just because someone dug through his Twitter account.
Society changes every day and is it really fair to judge someone for something they said online 10 years ago? Especially a Tweet which is basically a sentence that is almost forgotten the minute after its written.
This foolish has caused some people to go back and delete any Tweet consider “offensive” The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson has caused a stir after deleting 20,000 Tweets giving people the impression that he had something to hide. Sarah Silverman is in hot water for a Tweet from 2009. Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader was forced to take sensitivity training because he said the N-word on Twitter when he was 17 years old.
Here’s the Silverman Tweet
Hey, is it considered molestation if the child makes the first move? I'm gonna need a quick answer on this.

Is a small joke like this worth getting worked up over? I don’t really think its funny or anything, but are you really that insecure that you can get offended by something like this? This bitch is a fucking comedian and if something she says offends you then you have the choice of not following her or not buying any tickets to her shows. There is no reason to intentionally ruin someone’s career over something this minor.
The people who are digging for this can go fuck themselves and die. Do they really have nothing better to do than to scroll through years worth of Tweets finding something that will offend them?
