‘Guardians of the Galaxy’ Star Dave Bautista Has No Time for Homophobia

Wrestler-turned-actor says he is a “proud son of a lesbian”

“Guardians of the Galaxy” star Dave Bautista is being just as brutally honest as his irrevernt character Drax about people who don’t support the LGBT community. A fan recently thanked him for his pro-LGBT stance on Twitter, saying he is a “true guardian.”

The former wrestling champion responded, saying that no thanks was necessary. “Proud son of a lesbian and anyone who has issue w/ that can suck my balls,” he tweeted. 

Bautista is known for sticking up for the LGBT community, especially after fellow wrestler Manny Pacquiao made homophobic comments in 2016. The wrestler quoted a Bible verse about gay men being put to death in a now-deleted post, and Bautista responded by calling him an “idiot” in an interview with TMZ.

My mom happens to be a lesbian so I don’t f*king take that s*t. I don’t think it’s funny,” he said. “If anyone called my mother an animal I’d stick my foot in his ass.”

Here’s the clip from 2016:
