Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on Saturday called for director James Gunn to be prosecuted over his old tweets containing offensive jokes about pedophilia and rape.

Gunn was fired from “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3″ by Disney Studios after far-right activists unearthed the old comments.

Cruz, who formerly served as solicitor general of Texas, called the tweets “just horrible.”
