Selma Blair paves out of Twitter following James Gunn's defence

Selma Blair quits Twitter following James Gunn's defence

Selma Blair today quit Twitter after she used the social media platform to defend "Guardians of the Galaxy" director James Gunn, who was fired from the third instalment of the franchise over a series of old offensive tweets.

The 46-year-old actor's last tweet reads: "So long. You can find me on Instagram. #Istandwithjamesgunn."

Blair's account, however, continues to be active.

The actor may have dropped a hint about staying away from the microblogging site on Thursday when she shared a story with the title "Was James Gunn the first undeserving victim of Hollywood's new zero-tolerance policy?"

She captioned the article: "Does anyone else have feelings about leaving Twitter?"

Blair was one of the first Hollywood stars to support Gunn after his shock sacking from the "GOTG" threequel and also shared a petition asking Marvel to rehire him.

The actor, who has been longtime friends with the director, tweeted last week that Gunn was instrumental in encouraging her to come forward with allegations of sexual harassment against director James Toback.

"@JamesGunn I thank you for your talent, your decency and your evolution as a man. You propped me up when I was in a scary place, and guided me towards the decent and right thing to do. You have shown strength of character more than most anyone I know. You understood."
