"You can find me on Instagram," wrote the actress.
Selma Blair says she is leaving Twitter after she used the platform to protect James Gunn, the director of the Guardian of the Galaxy who recently made the Marvel franchise's third film for  "So long, you can find me on Instagram. #Istandwithjamesgunn," Blair wrote to her followers on Saturday.
The movement followed Blair's repeated defenses to Gunn on the platform on Sunday, where she wrote to the director: "@JamesGunn, thank you for your talent, decency, and development as a man, you supported me when I was in a scary place, and led me to do the decent and right thing, "wrote the actress. "You showed character strength, more than most of the others I know, you got it."
Blair also shared a Change.org petition in which he asked Marvel to reinstate Gunn on Twitter because, in her words, "people are being punished despite change, so what does people teach about owning mistakes and to develop? "She called Gunn" one of the good guys. "
On Thursday, Blair seemed to have already considered leaving the platform, told the Guardian story, "Was James Gunn the first undeserved victim of the new Hollywood zero tolerance policy?" With the caption : "Anyone else have feelings to leave Twitter?"
Blair and Gunn have been close friends for years, with the first saying the director helped her resolve to make allegations of sexual harassment against director James Toback.
"Really, there were two men who were most comforting to me saying, 'You'll be safe, you'll be fine,'" Blair told The Hollywood Reporter in . "This was James Gunn and Scott Stranger Scott Scott Derrickson, who reached out and said how important it is to be on this side of the story."
Gunn was re-emerged from his role as a writer and director on the Guardians franchise after conservative personalities of the director's old tweets, in which he joked about topics such as pedophilia and rape. In addition to Blair, Guardians stars Chris Pratt and Dave Bautista have defended the director.
So long. You can find me on Instagram. #Istandwithjamesgunn
