In the past, Gunn has gone to social media to call out scoopers who ruin this experience. In the past, the director has stated that spoilers ruin movies and tweeted out his opinion.

“If a movie can be ruined by spoilers, it’s not a good movie. I’m opposed to spoiling things for folks, but studies show knowing spoilers only very slightly affects the viewer’s pleasure, if at all (and sometimes increases the pleasure of a well-crafted film).”

The director is right because, in a highly competitive industry where numerous films are being created to entertain the audience, scoopers tend to ruin the experience for both fans and creators of the show.
