Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 2 Director Apologizes For Shooting Abraham Lincoln

James Gunn became the new #ZackAttack meme

After Guardians of the Galaxy franchise director James Gunn broke our hearts with his Baby Groot bombshell on Facebook on Tuesday (September 6), we needed some laughter. Thankfully, the internet answered. Twitter user @IAMACT0R posted a pic of Gunn holding a gun and urged people to make some photoshopped magic.

Not long after, Gunn started seeing all these hilarious memes of himself and asked, "WTF is going on with this hashtag? What does it mean? #JamesGUN is confused." One fan quickly responded with a pic of Abraham Lincoln's assassination.

Several people were now hooked (on a feeling), making memes in a hilarious photoshop battle.

Of course, a few fans pointed out #JamesGUN was the new #ZackAttack, which was a similar meme style featuring fellow superhero director Zack Snyder.
