The man behind the “Guardians of the Galaxy” films, director and writer James Gunn, has advice for the Austin man who is suing his date for texting during the second installation of the film series: Go forth. 

Gunn tweeted his response Tuesday after news broke that a 37-year-old Austin man was suing his date for $17.31 (the cost of the movie ticket) after she reportedly continued to text throughout the movie. 

The story quickly drew a nationwide buzz. 

The woman was unaware of the charge against her when the American-Statesman initially reached out to her, saying, “Oh my god. This is crazy.”

No word yet on where Groot stands on the matter.
