'Guardians of the Galaxy' director James Gunn fired over offensive tweets

The director of the successful “Guardians of the Galaxy” movies, James Gunn, has been fired from the franchise’s third installment over offensive tweets about pedophilia and rape.

>> Read more trending news 

The shocking tweets, which had been taken down, aren’t new and Gunn had apologized for them in the past, but conservative media personalities resurfaced the posts from 2008 - 2011 this week, causing a backlash against Gunn, who has been an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump.

"The offensive attitudes and statements discovered on James’ Twitter feed are indefensible and inconsistent with our studio’s values, and we have severed our business relationship with him," Walt Disney Studios chairman Alan Horn said in a statement Friday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Gunn also issued a statement Friday, saying he’s a “very, very different” person than he was a few years ago and that he’s “developed as a person” since he posted the offensive tweets.

"My words of nearly a decade ago were, at the time, totally failed and unfortunate efforts to be provocative," he said. "I have regretted them for many years since — not just because they were stupid, not at all funny, wildly insensitive, and certainly not provocative like I had hoped, but also because they don't reflect the person I am today or have been for some time."

“I used to make a lot of offensive jokes. I don’t anymore,” he said.

Gunn was fired before a scheduled appearance Friday at Comic-Con International: San Diego.

Disney and Marvel Studios saw huge successes with the “Guardian” movies, with the first one making more than $773 million and the second raking in $863, according to THR.

Disney: ′Star Wars Clone Wars′ will be back, announcement made at San Diego Comic Con

One of the first big announcements coming out of San Diego Comic Con 2018 is that “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” will be back for a new season. 

Dave Filoni made the announcement Thursday during a 10th anniversary celebration of the animated series that filled in the gap between “Star Wars” episodes II and IV. 

There will be 12 new episodes that will be released on Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service.

The original run had five seasons and a handful of episodes that were called “The Lost Missions.”

Fans, however, wanted more, since not all stories were told, according to the “Star Wars’” official blog.

Filoni, who helmed “Clone Wars,” says of being able to finish the stories, “It’s very rewarding. Any opportunity to put the final pieces of the story in place is meaningful as a storyteller. I’m happy for the opportunity to define these things and the end of this part of the Clone War.”

The streaming service that will host “Clone Wars” is expected to be released to consumers next year, The Verge reported.

In addition to “Clone Wars,” Disney previously announced a new live-action show written for Jon Favreau and a new animated show, “Star Wars Resistance,” that is set before “The Force Awakens,” The Verge reported.

Fence doesn’t keep boy, ‘new best friend’ from playing fetch

A Minnesota 2-year-old and a neighbor’s dog have become viral video stars after a family friend recorded them playing a unique game of fetch that even a wooden fence couldn’t stop. 

Chad Nelson, a photojournalist with KARE11 in Minneapolis, told the news station that he, his wife and their son Conway were at a friend’s Savage home for a play date Wednesday evening when his friend’s neighbor’s dog, a Labrador retriever named Dozer, peered over the fence and dropped a ball into the yard. 

An excited Conway picked up the ball and chucked it back over the fence. The moment quickly turned into the cutest game of fetch ever. 

“Conway just loves playing catch,” Nelson told KARE11. “We have two dogs, but neither one will play fetch. So he was pretty excited to have someone that would.”

Nelson’s friend, Erin Richter, captured the game of fetch on video, which Nelson shared on social media. 

“A fence can’t stop my 2-year-old from playing with his new best friend,” Nelson wrote. 

As of Friday morning, the video had been watched more than 7.7 million times on Facebook. It had been shared nearly 250,000 times and garnered more than 14,000 comments. 

It was also a sensation on Twitter

Nelson said he and his wife were stunned by the response. 

“It was just a cute thing,” he told the news station. “We just thought Conway was being cute and our friends would like it, and all of a sudden it’s being shared to thousands of people.”

Richter said Dozer is a frequent playmate of her son, Landon, despite the fence. 

“They play ball every time they are both outside,” Richter told KARE11. “Landon quits throwing once the ball becomes too slobbery, but Dozer will keep dropping balls or bones over until he has to go inside.”

Several of the commenters on the video of Dozer and Conway were impressed by the toddler’s strong throwing arm. 

“So cute, and what a good arm and aim for a 2-year-old,” a man wrote on Facebook

“Nice arm,” another man wrote on Twitter. “Teach him to throw with his left and he could pitch in the MLB as a LOOGY (Left-handed One Out Guy) into his 40s!”

“He has quite the cannon, doesn’t he?” Nelson responded. 

Twitter users, by Friday, had watched Conway and Dozer play fetch more than 10.7 million times and shared the video over 255,000 times.

Police officer says prayer over boy before brain surgery

A Georgia police officer is going viral for his act of kindness, but he says he was just doing his job.

Jason Lambert, an officer with the Warner Robins Police Department, took a moment to comfort a boy before the child went in for a surgical procedure on his brain.

Jalen Manns, 9, was diagnosed with a brain tumor called thalamic glioma in May. He started battling headaches over a year an a half ago. His mother had to quit her job to take care of her son full time because they became so bad. Then he was having anxiety and terrors at night. After going to see a sleep therapist, and going to the Autism Center, he had a brain MRI that discovered the tumor, WMAZ reported.

Eventually the officers at the Warner Robins Police Department heard about Jalen’s story and his planned biopsy.

Before his procedure, Lambert, along with members of the K-9 unit, stopped by to visit the boy.  They gave him a t-shirt and a stuffed animal of a German shepherd to add to his collection called “Jalen’s guard dogs,” WMAZ reported.

That’s when Lamberth knelt down and said a prayer for Jalen before escorting him to the hospital for his surgery.

Lamberth never thought he’d get the attention he has and that’s not why he prayed over Jalen.

“I just wanted to get, one, believing in God’s healing powers. I never expected anything like this to go viral,” Lamberth told WMAZ.“I don’t want the attention. It’s not about me. It’s about God. It’s about Jalen and getting his story out there. I  just really hope and pray for his total healing and that people will go and support the family,” Lamberth told WMAZ.

After the escort, the officers helped get Jalen settled, and while he didn’t want them to leave, they promised him they’d be back.

“They all wanted to follow up with him,” Hannah Manns told CBS News. “They said they want to redo everything again after the procedure is over.”

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up to help Jalen and his family. 

Restaurant tries shaming teen who used quarters to pay, inspires campaign to buy other’s meals

A restaurant that faced backlash after trying to shame a teenager who paid a bill mostly in quarters, inspired the customer to start fundraising to pay for more people’s meals with change. 

>> Read more trending news

Cohen Naulty took a couple of his friends out for lunch Monday to Beer 88, where he picked up the $45 tab. He used a $20 bill and mostly quarters to cover the check as well as a $10 tip, he said. 

"It's just U.S. currency. I'm allowed to use it. It's not illegal. I'm not doing anything wrong," Naulty told WSET

Later that day, the restaurant shared a picture of the change and included hashtags “#nohometraining” in a post that has since been removed. 

The restaurant said in a later post that its original post was not intended to be hurtful. That post has also been removed. 

“In response to our earlier post, it was posted as a joke, intended as a joke and should be taken as a joke. It was posted as a light-hearted way of saying that something like this can be annoying to people that work in the restaurant/retail industry. In no way did we publicly shame ANYONE for paying OR tipping. We try to keep our page funny and relatable. And had no idea that this would be offensive to anyone.”

"On that part, yes, I do apologize," Yao Liu, the owner of Beer 88, told WSET, referring to the hashtag. "Because, you know, I didn't see it."

Naulty, 17, who works as a server at Kountry Kitchen, turned the worldwide interest into a way to keep buying lunch for people. He started The Quarter Boy, a fundraiser to pay for stranger’s meals in change at least once a week. It has raised $4,900.

“If you are a restaurant that wouldn’t mind a register filled with quarters at the end of the night and a special treat for one of your patrons now and then please post so I know who I won’t offend by coming by,” he wrote on Facebook.

Starbucks to the rescue when weather cancels teen’s senior pictures

The employees at some Starbucks locations really feel like they don’t just work at a coffee shop, they’re part of the community. One shop in Fountain, Colorado, apparently is one of those type of stores. 

Sydney Johansson was getting ready to have her senior portraits taken Sunday afternoon, but the weather wouldn’t cooperate. So her mother drove her around, with the photographer in tow, looking for anywhere that could accommodate them, KKTV reported

The photography session couldn’t be rescheduled because Sydney has an upcoming surgery. She is also in a wheelchair. 

Sydney has cerebral palsy among other health conditions, KKTV reported

Laura Johansson suggested Starbucks, thinking the worst that could happen, would be that the shop would say no.

Photographer Jessica Vallia posted what transpired at the store to Facebook

Vallia said that the man at the counter told them that they could absolutely use the store for the photos. The employee, Chris, offered the Johanssons his umbrella so they could stay dry as the trio transferred from the vehicle into the store. Chris then went out with them, getting soaked in the rain in the process, to help Sydney and Jessica into the shop.

Chris warmed the group up with hot chocolate and inquired multiple times if they needed anything else. As the session progressed, Chris got paper and markers out to make Sydney a backdrop for her photos.
