According to the report from Deadline - which was confirmed with Marvel Studios and James Gunn's camp - Walt Disney Studios president Alan Horn met with Gunn on multiple occasions to discuss what had led to his firing.
But Gunn's dismissal was passionately protested by many, including the Guardians cast.
After Gunn issued a public apology, Horn chose to reinstate the director. Disney, a family company that doesn't truck with that sort of thing, fired Gunn, who was immediately contrite and took full responsibility for his dumb bad tweets.
When Gunn was sacked, he issued a statement apologizing for his controversial tweets. According to Friday's Deadline report, Horn was swayed by those meetings - and Gunn's public apology - to re-hire the writer/director. "As I've developed as a person, so has my work and my humor", he said in a statement at the time.

The script was completed before Gunn was sacked, so at least some work may be able to move forward without Gunn being involved. "Love to you all".
Gunn then moved to Warner Bros. and DC where he wrote the screenplay for, and is set to direct, The Suicide Squad - the sequel to 2016's Suicide Squad. "My days saying something just because it's shocking and trying to get a reaction are over".
