By now, I’m sure everyone’s up to speed on the story surrounding James Gunn, his 10-year old tweets, and his firing from Disney. Sufficed to say, it should go without saying that nothing we ever say on social media, good or bad, will ever stay private, nor should it be. The second that you transfer a thought from your brain into another medium, be it a book, a tweet, or a gallery of funny photos, it’s no longer yours.
It’s out there, for everyone to see and to use, and it might the the thing that dooms you. Which is why you just shouldn’t say stupid shit on the internet.
