The Hollywood Reporter story confirms that the tweet that got Gina Carano fired was not wrong.
Gina Carano will not be returning to The Mandalorian or the Star Wars galaxy after sharing a post on social media implying that being a Republican today is like being Jewish during the Holocaust.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Carano has also been dropped as a client by UTA, an agency spokesperson confirms.
On Wednesday, the hashtag #FireGinaCarano was trending following an Instagram post from the outspoken conservative actor and former mixed martial artist that was met with severe backlash. The post has since been deleted, but screenshots were widely shared by users on social media who called for her firing from the hit Disney+ Star Wars show.
This is not the first time Carano, who played former Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune on The Mandalorian, has been the focus of social media ire for her political comments. Last November, she issued contentious tweets, one in which she mocked mask-wearing amid the novel coronavirus pandemic and another in which she falsely suggested voter fraud occurred during the 2020 presidential election.
“They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” a source with knowledge of Lucasfilm’s thinking tells THR.
Here’s the (later deleted) tweet that got her cancelled.
I’ve said so myself- I find us a bit up-history from the Weimar, presently.
LOL. I find it hard to express in words the humor and irony in this. She actually said that Republicans and conservatives are openly discriminated against and punished for stating what they believe… AND without missing a beat Hollywood openly discriminated against her and punished her for being a conservative Republican!! You can’t make this stuff up.
This is almost as blatant as the Dems vehemently denying that there was election fraud and to prove their point destroy ballots and wipe the voting machines clean so there can’t ever be an audit of the voting to prove there was or was not fraud.
Me thinks Hollywood doth protest too much.
In the immortal words of Mayor Carmine De Pasto, “If you mention extortion again, I’ll have your legs broken.”
Ms. Carano made one mistake. She assumed that the cretins in Hollywood have functioning brains and can understand and process nuance ideas. They don’t. That’s why they are in business that places a higher value on things like feelings and abusing women than on morals, meaning and thought. The vast majority of those working in the movies are ignorant, sociopathic scum.
Ms. Carano should feel fortunate however that she isn’t a Uighur. Hollywood supports the CCP’s genocide of the that unfortunate people.
How are the Progressives going to get their followers to cancel and abuse Conservatives if good old fashioned terrorism is equated to “Fascism” (National Socialism)? “Antifa” is supposedly “anti-Fascist” and such posts confuse the poor dim thugs recruited for the purpose.
