Kurt Sutter Targets Disney After FX Firing ‘Hakuna Matata’
Kurt Sutter, co creator of Mayans M.C, was fired from the Sons of Anarchy spin off after an internal dispute.
According to Deadline, Sutter was fired due to his on-set behavior from cast and crew members. In a letter that was sent to his inner circle on the Sons of Anarchy spinoff, Sutter placed a lot of the blame on Disney, which recently acquired FX as part of its Fox merger. “I’ve felt the creative scrutiny of Disney from day one,” he wrote in the letter. “Notes on scripts and cuts have been heavy handed. Demanding a level of dumbing-down story and inane PC restraints like I’ve never experienced before. I genuinely feared for the creative future of the storytelling. So I pushed back. Hard.”
Thanks for all the love and support. I’ve been vocalizing all day. So ready to nail this audition and start my next gig. Hakuna matata, motherfuckers. pic.twitter.com/6P1u3zQdtP

Only a few hours after the news of his firing was released, Sutter targeted FX and parent company Disney on Twitter. The producer wrote alongside an advertisement for a Walt Disney World audition, “Thanks for all the love and support. I’ve been vocalizing all day. So ready to nail this audition and start my next gig. Hakuna matata, motherf***ers.”
