Disney has finally fired Gina Carano from The Mandalorian, for good reason

Gina Carano arrives at the Los Angeles Premiere Of Disney+'s 'The Mandalorian' held at the El Capitan Theatre on November 13, 2019 in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, United States.

When I saw #FireGinaCarano trending on Twitter yesterday, I sighed and wondered what kind of transphobic crap she was saying now. Last year, that hashtag was being used by thousands of people who were justifiably mad at all of the dumbf–k sh-t she was saying on Twitter, from mocking trans-inclusion to spreading deadly conspiracies about mask-wearing and lockdown protocols. Yes, Carano revealed herself to be one of those people, a MAGA-type, and it would not surprise me at all if she was friends with a lot of the January 6th insurrectionists. As it turns out, #FireGinaCarano was trending this week because she posted this on her IG Stories:

Consider this: she felt she had to post this deeply offensive, completely reprehensible crap on Instagram… because Parler was shut down for being “too Nazi.” Months ago, she was all about Parler. Anyway, that’s why everyone was justifiably disgusted about Carano this week, because holy sh-t she’s f–king contemptible. This time, Disney paid attention. All the transphobia and deadly mask conspiracies were fine with Disney. But the anti-Semitism and comparison between the Holocaust and people calling out modern dumbf–k Nazis was the bridge too far. So Carano was fired from The Mandalorian and fired from her agency:

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.

According to sources, Lucasfilm planned to unveil Carano as the star of her own Disney+ series during a December investor’s day presentation but scrapped those plans following her November tweets. Multiple Mandalorian spinoffs are in the works from executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, including Rangers of the New Republic, which could have potentially starred Carano. But after the latest round of social media posts, the decision to cut ties with the actor came swiftly.

[From THR]

While I’m glad that Disney fired her and that her agency dropped her, I wonder about this: “They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months…” Like, they literally could have fired her for spreading anti-mask propaganda and deadly conspiracies in a pandemic? They literally could have warned her that she needed to delete her accounts when the transphobic sh-t happened even earlier than that? Instead, Disney chose to let her run wild until now.

    Woke up to this news and it seriously made my day!! Bye bye POS don’t let the door hit you on your transphobe trump supporting a*s on the way out 😃

    • rainbowkitty says:

      Yes! I’ve been waiting for it. I knew it had to happen at some point and honestly I’m surprised it’s taken them this long.

  2. Digital Unicorn says:

    Good riddance – there are other ways to express yourself without comparing your situation to the brutal genocide of innocent people by a violent facist regime (one that the current GOP are keen to emulate).

    READ THE ROOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • LaraK says:

      Oh, yikes! I hadn’t seen this prior to this article (guess I’ve been living under a rock), and it’s a little astonishing what people will post just for shock value.
      Thing is, I bet she doesn’t even get what she did wrong. People like this cloak themselves in the first amendment, but deep down I think she’s saying everything just to be in the news. It’s scary when you think about it.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Good Riddance of a Bad Person!

      I have never seen a single episode of the Mandalorian. However, I know many 60 year old+ diehard fans of Star Wars that did not like one bit the turn the show took in the most recent season. I know not what I am speaking of but my friends especially loudly complained about giving Baby Yoda a story line that almost got him cultural-cancelled on Twitter.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I had no issue with Grogu’s backstory and thought both that and his exit was fitting, it made sense to the story arc.

      • Rapunzel says:

        DU- I think BTB is referring to the “Grogu eats the frog lady’s eggs” episode. There were a lot of fans saying that made Grogu look like a genocidal monster. It’s the only cancel culture thing I could think of.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Ah – yeah I did wonder a bit with that little sub plot but given he had previously eaten other live animals in previous episodes I took that to be that his species was carnivorous who (like other animals on earth) ate the eggs of others. I guess I missed the ‘dark side’ ref.

        Yoda if i recall did not eat meat.

      • Rapunzel says:

        DU- the frog lady’s species was dying, remember? That’s why the eggs were important and why people had such issue with Grogu. It was like eating a very endangered species.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I remember now – I missed all that drama on SM LOL. SW fans can be very very emotionally invested in plots, I guess it’s a case that no one wanted to consider that Grogu was affected in some way by his backstory, that he had forgotten who and what he was. He is considered to be very young and was probably acting on instinct more than anything else.

      • Trillian says:

        Oh the frog episode. I was watching it and told my husband: Lol that is a small kid, I bet he will eat those eggs. I know toddlers.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Rapunzel – Yes that is it! Something about Baby Yoda Dude eating some eggs of an endangered species. Did this Baby Yoda Dude get “pooped” out by something? I also seem to remember this being part of this weirdo story line.

        I have never seen the show and am not any type of aficionado on Star Wars but this story line sounded bizarre to be. Then again, the friends that were discussing this in my presence are pretty bizarre themselves.

    • Emm says:

      Last night I read the story of the back lash and then five minutes later I read that she had been fired and it was glorious. I showed my husband and he laughed. We love the Mandalorian and have been waiting for this to happen. I mean why are people like this, just shut up! You had an amazing job and were about to embark on a ton of new projects and you just couldn’t keep your maga-ness to yourself even after being called out for months. I’m sure she will whine and cry about free speech and how she’s misunderstood and the left is out to get anyone with a different “opinion”. These are not opinions or differences in politics though, mask wearing is not political etc. I’m sure she will play the victim to the highest degree like they all do, just like she is comparing herself to holocaust victims. She’s disgusting and if they didn’t fire her I don’t know if I would’ve continued to watch Mando or any of the spin offs she was going to be a part of.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      Tbh I will never understand why these people feel the need to “express themselves” in the first place. If they have a public account with a lot of followers, this is because of their occupation. You should conduct yourself with the level of professionalism appropriate for your occupation. Why on earth would you feel the need to share your personal individual political beliefs??
      I teach on sensitive subjects all the time. I often have to tiptoe around various constraints, both explicit and implicit. Big effing deal. Do I need to share my personal individual opinion with students as part of my self-expression? NO. I show up and I do my job, which is to teach. I don’t confuse my occupation with my personal life.

      You’re the face of a franchise and somehow you think you’re being persecuted because you just had to share your personal thoughts? (To say nothing of the content of the thoughts themselves). No, you’re just unprofessional. You’re clearly not up to the task of representing any profit-making endeavour.

      On a related note, I will never ever understand why people have a problem with pronouns. I went to uni with a bunch of people who, when the teacher called out “Jennifer?” replied with something like, “Oh, I go by Rock.” Nobody insisted on using people’s birth names. Absolutely nobody cared what students wanted to be called. Soooo many “Feather”s and “Storm”s. All of this transphobia reminds me of when conservatives tried to make us think gay marriage would be bad for families.

  3. BlueSky says:

    imagine getting a role in a Star Wars show on Disney plus and a spin-off and risking it all because you can’t keep your mouth shut.

    • Mia4s says:

      I had the same thought below. It’s wildly self-destructive! That would have been several years of steady work and visibility! And Disney money! And hell, there are Star Wars actors who had five minutes of screen time making money at conventions forty years later! Her agents must have lost their minds with rage!! No wonder they “parted ways”.

      (On an unrelated note, congrats to Pedro Pascal on the new house he is going to buy with his Disney and HBO money. Hope it has a nice pool!)

      • deering24 says:

        Mia4s–MAGAs _are_ self-destructive. We’re talking folks who thought a political coup simply wasn’t complete without their faces, names, addresses, email addys, credit card charges, and transportation records. :)

      • minx says:

        Agree, they just can’t keep their big fat ignorant mouths shut.

    • AlpineWitch says:

      On top of everything she is also an incredibly bad actress, at the point that when I saw Haywire I thought that any normal woman picked in a gym would have made a better job than her. She was THAT bad.

      If you add all the awful things she says, well… hopefully she won’t get any work anymore. She must be really dumb as well.

      • BodegaBay says:

        Agreed. My husband and I walked out of the theater and got refunded for our Haywire tickets because she was so bad.

    • Maida says:

      It’s crazy that these celebrities seem to have learned nothing from Roseanne Barr et. al.
      Say something profoundly offensive in a public forum, which violates the “ethics” clause of your contract, and get fired.
      It’s that simple.

    • Det20! says:

      Yeah, you wonder. Then again, if you have seen her in interviews or behind the scene clips – I watched some of it on Disney+ – she comes across as… not very smart. It is not super apparent at first, but if you pay attention, it becomes quite obvious.

    • LillyfromLilooet says:

      THIS. I am sure she also had plenty of warning from producers and her own management.

      I have to say, I am sorry because I truly loved Carano on the show, she and Pedro Pascal had wonderful chemistry as ride-or-die comrades. Her character was always his final go to and she did a tremendous job with the role.

  4. Oh_Hey says:

    I was wondering how long they would let this go. She’s been anti-mask, MAGA, and a huge transphobe (while the title star of the show is a huge ally who’s sister just came out as trans). She’s been ASKING to get fired since she got hired. I wonder why now tho? Like you could have canned her a million years ago and probably should have.

    • Jenn says:

      Oh, I agree. But I think it’s the fact that all these corporations are terrified of a highly-organized, fascist-adjacent mob targeting them. Disney is probably especially worried about that, because they’ve seen the harassment leveled at individual employees like Kelly Marie Tran, Brie Larsen, John Boyega, and their movies’ writers and directors. (Even Mark Hamill is not unscathed, although he seems to take the Internet in stride.) Maybe Disney even hoped that hiring Gina Carano would soothe that particularly vocal, bad-faith contingent (there sure are a lot of MRAs and racists participating in Star Wars fandom!), not expecting her to rapidly crank up the temperature or to pick fights. (Also, Jon Favreau fought to hire her and, I assume, to keep her.)

      By the time she’d proven she was a liability, Disney was probably desperate to get rid of her, but were totally aware that letting her go over something “small” like a “political tweet” would result in mass outcry and worse. They had to wait for her to do something that not even the mob would defend, and… well… yay?

      • Jenn says:

        Two more details: I agree that LucasFilm’s statement is *saying* she’d been let go prior to this, but “nevertheless” they’ll denounce her message.
        And also, people are now yelling online, predictably, that Carano was “fired for being a Republican.”

        So yeah, maybe Disney DID actually try to let her go quietly and with dignity, and maybe, in turn, she started strategically ramping up the offensiveness of her social media presence to garner allegiance & support from a particular group of people, in order to then have their sympathies once her absence was finally noticed. (I can’t decide if she overshot with this, or if she deliberately canceled herself so that she can join the ranks of Dean Cain celebrity.)

      • BayTampaBay says:

        “And also, people are now yelling online, predictably, that Carano was ‘fired for being a Republican.’.”

        Many people have been fired from their jobs or contracts not renewed for much less offensive behavior than being a republican.

      • Miranda says:

        “Is it OK to fire someone for being a Republican?” is the new “is it OK to punch a Nazi?” Right or wrong (and I think right, because freedom of speech doesn’t mean freedom from consequences), it’s pretty difficult to feel sad when it happens.

    • Dutch says:

      LucasFilm was stuck in a strange position. S2 of Mando completed filming just before the shutdown in March 2020. Some of her more horrible social media posts didn’t come until summer of that year. In any other year, they could have fired her and rewritten the role or recast, but the shutdown made that impossible. So I’m sure there were stern warnings and promises all around that she would tone down the rhetoric (judging by her agency dropping her, they must have had the same conversation with her).
      TL;DR: Because of the pandemic they were stuck with her until S2 aired because they didn’t want her or her ideology overshadowing the launch of Disney+’s most bankable content. I’m sure they had the termination papers drawn up in advance waiting for the right opportunity, and Carano delivered in a big way.

    • LightPurple says:

      Employment attorney here – it’s called progressive discipline. Depending on the collective bargaining agreement, people usually can’t be fired from a job for an initial offense, especially something that happens in the employee’s personal life and not at the workplace. Arbitrators tend to reinstate. So, her earlier transphobic comments and anti-mask comments were probably strikes one and two, this is strike 3 and she’s out. A much stronger case to go before an arbitrator.

  5. SarahCS says:

    I started watching the Mandalorian just before Christmas I think and at the start thought ooh yay, we have a women getting s*it done, love it. Then I realised who she really is (thanks Celebitchy) and felt so let down. I’m so pleased by this news and I was very conflicted watching her in it. But yes, they could have ditched her some time back for the abhorrent things she’s said well before this.

    • LAR says:

      Yes, SarahCS, I was also pleased that they had a strong woman warrior character who was badass (not just “for a girl”). Very disappointing that she espouses such horrible views. Like a lot of the posters here, I don’t know why people don’t see how destructive it is to their livelihoods. Most people talk through their viewpoints with friends and family, but remain professional for anything public .

  6. Mrs. Peel says:

    She can always get a job at Fox News. Oh wait, she’s not skinny enough.

    • notpretentious says:

      Too funny Mrs. Peel! And true…

    • AlpineWitch says:

      Haha.. the irony must be lost on her that she would be fatshamed by MAGAts…

      • Jenn says:

        That’s just it — I don’t think it IS lost on her. I think that’s why she works overtime to prove to them that she’s one of them. Sad.

    • Jenn says:

      It’s previously occurred to me that her transphobia — which is to say, her internalized misogyny — is, yeah, probably very deeply rooted in her insecurity over having a less “conventionally-feminine” frame, which was probably tough on her growing up in ultra-conformist Texas. I’ve noticed, especially in photos like these, with her big Belle-esque floofy gown and facial fillers, she’s trying to do all she can to distract from her physique (which is, HELLO, her moneymaker!!). I loathe her, but she also makes me depressed.

  7. Millennial says:

    I’m glad she’s gone, but I am sad because it probably means the end of her character. It was so nice to see a big, buff woman on TV. She’s probably be either replaced by a) a man or b) a super thin Hollywood actress.

    • Dlc says:

      I felt the same way. Also, how dumb is she? Someone must have warned her to keep her awful ideas to herself and her friends, and she couldn’t do that for Disney money?!?

      • Mia4s says:

        The Daily Beast story reported that she apologized to Disney, which tells me they gave her a second chance to clean up her act. And she didn’t!! The story also said her publicists bailed in the Fall, so she was being advised I assume and not listening. Good for the publicists for not wasting their time.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Someone mentioned replacing her with Lucy “Xena” Lawless. I’m down with that.

      • Dlc says:

        Love Lucy Lawless! Or their must be some other MMA or athletes with acting potential. And I agree, although I liked the character, Carano s acting was pretty flat.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Am SOOOO with that, if they don’t replace the character I can see them giving Bo-Katan a bigger role.

      • Rapunzel says:

        The person playing Bo Katan’s buddy is WWE wrestler Sasha Banks (Snoop Dogg’s cousin). I’m sure the WWE could find someone who’d be a good replacement for Gina.

    • Shirurusu says:

      I agree I thought it was refreshing to see a buff woman in the show at first but unfortunately I didn’t like her much during the series because her acting is so wooden. Not going to miss her at all that’s for sure, but I hope they can bring on someone else on who looks like an actual fighter instead of a model.

      • AlpineWitch says:

        In Haywire she was unwatchable. I had to forward the movie at several points, she was that bad. She was also dubbed.

    • Digital Unicorn says:

      I started watching The Mandalorian and I had no idea who she was but I was pleased to see a muscular/buff woman play what I think is a great character but the more i watched it became apparent she lacked any sort of acting talent. Her character has a great backstory that would be explored in a spin off series but sadly I think they will kill her character off.

    • Theresa says:

      I’d love to see her replaced by a trans actor.

      • Poisonella says:

        I get the feeling she was probably someone’s girlfriend – Favreau’s? He is also Vince Vaughn’s pal, and isn’t he Mr. Hollywood MAGA? Anyway, she sucks as an actress and can go back to eating the leftover fries from her customer’s plates. I just can’t with these people and anything regarding the holocaust and Jews.

      • Det20! says:

        Why would she have to be someone’s girlfriend and Favreau’s of all people? He is married. And even if he is friends with Vaugh, where even is the connection? Is there any serious source for this suggestion? Because it is the kind of wild speculation which can start nasty rumours.

  8. Mia4s says:

    The backstory of this I think will be super interesting if it comes out. This went way too far. “Not currently employed” does not sound like this all went down yesterday. I have a hunch (based also on Pedro Pascal just getting a huge role) that the initial Mandalorian contracts were two seasons, and the longer shooting break was partially about negotiations and planning (Season 3 apparently starts filming in April). So they were in a good spot to just not renew her for more as opposed to having to potentially pay out any big contracts (and it also explains why Pedro can commit to more stuff; he know when he’s needed and when he’s not for the Star Wars stuff).

    So she hated and dumbassed her way out of a pay raise for more seasons and/or her own spinoff,AND pissed off Disney which owns half the world. Wow. Just…wow. No kidding her agents dropped her!

    • Blinkbanana says:

      The fee on her first two seasons would have been reasonable but not amazing to what she would have got renegotiating prior to season 3. There’s no way they’re going to drop that kind of money on someone who goes against their company values, so axing her prior to season 3 makes sense. Any delays would have been down to COVID. All main cast would have 6 years worth of options which is standard, but there’s nothing stopping them from writing anyone out, and this way they get to do it for free as she broke her morality clause.

    • MF1 says:

      I was really happy to read that Lucasfilm had planned to announce Carano as the star of her own Disney+ series and that they canned the announcement. That makes her firing even more satisfying!

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        I was initially happy about that as her character has an interesting back story but the more I learned about Carano the less i liked it.

  9. Cj says:

    I’m not surprised that the company took such a no tolerance stance this time given they once had a backlash for Walt Disney’s personal views on the Jewish community. A hard no from Disney on being affiliated with anti-semitism ever again.

    Also I saw an internet suggestion they recast the character with Lucy Lawless, and I am here for that to happen. I still fangirl over Xena and that’s even before Lucy owning Kevin Sorbo on Twitter

  10. Case says:

    I’m so glad she’s gone. The way that statement was phrased by Lucasfilm, it actually sounds to me like they let her go before this happened.

    • Blinkbanana says:

      Probably. The confidentiality around anything Star Wars or Marvel related is crazy so there’s no way we’d know for definite, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she was let go prior to this and this proved to be an opportune time to make the announcement

    • smcollins says:

      @blinkbanana You took the words right out of my head. I think she was quietly let go a while back and so she felt “free” to post that garbage, but since she was seemingly still linked to Disney they had to respond to publicly distance themselves from her & her nonsense. I really liked her character (bad acting aside) so I hope they recast instead of killing her off or something like that.

  11. newmenow says:

    No idea who she is.
    Now that I read her post copied above, Fired is correct.

    The country is full of talented people in the entertainment field.
    Open auditions for people who have open minds to being a decent and respectful person to others. Is empathy completely forgotten now?

  12. Willow says:

    You cannot compare the Holocaust to anything else.

  13. BnLurkN4eva says:

    I cannot believe I used to like this woman. I’m telling you social media is a detriment to celebrities and a benefit to us because it shows us these peoples true color. The awful ones can’t bring themselves to listen to their representatives and shut up, so they eventually reveal themselves.

    I rooted for her and that Caville dude once upon a time, then too late learned he was a tool and now have to face that she is a terrible human. How do people let themselves get like this, I just don’t understand, were people just always this awful, or is it something in the water?

    • cassandra says:

      Yeah I tried to hide my head in the sand about Cavill cause he’s pretty and has a nice accent, but besides the words that come out of his mouth, his dating history is pretty damning too. This woman, and then he dated that 19 year old a few years back.

      • spittair says:

        I think this is a bit harsh. Dating someone years ago who turned out to be a not so great person/have sh*tty views on a particular issue shouldn’t be an indictment on your personal character. The tryst with the 19 yr made me give him the side eye, but most of the women he’s dated have been in his age group. He made a self-centered and stupid statement about #metoo and has since apologized for it. On the scale of Hollywood POS, he doesn’t rank very high, imo.

  14. Elizabeth says:

    The gall of this woman when the Nazis were social conservatives & we literally have neo-Nazis wearing Nazi symbols at Charlottesville, the Capitol assault, and most Trump rallies and right wing marches!

    They should absolutely have fired her for transphobia and it’s extremely sad that was apparently fine with Disney.

  15. LOL says:

    Inatagram is the down fall of all these out of touch famous idiot’s. Glad she got called out And drop kicked to the curb.

  16. Angel says:

    Imagine stopping your own bag like that ? definition of being stupid. She learned the hard way.

  17. Watson says:

    Considering Pedro Pascal’s sister is Trans i can only imagine how he felt working with her on this show since her anti trans tweets were well known. She was and is a liability.

  18. Tovah says:

    Bye, Gina. Don‘t let the door hit you, where the good Lord split you.

  19. Sandra says:

    What a dum-dum. What an amazing opportunity she had with this series and she threw it away. Maybe she and Kristy Swanson can do a show together about MAGA ladies.

  20. Nata says:

    Just to be exact. This is the picture from Lwów (a Polish city.. I’m Polish btw). It’s a pogrom (literally Polish & Ukrainian people robbing, raping & murdering Jewish people). So basically she WAS right. Those are neighbours murdering neighbours, because of cultural differences.
    Also, I’m not defending her. Her previous posts were bonkers.

    • Det20! says:

      Could it be you misunderstood what she meant in her context and why she cannot make that comparison – she is NOT right!!

    • Mia4s says:

      I think what people miss is that it was not about this post alone. It’s not the first questionable or downright offensive or outright dangerous thing she has posted or liked…it’s somewhere around the 50th questionable or downright offensive or outright dangerous thing she has posted or liked. As someone above pointed out, she’s had her chances (progressive discipline). And I also think the wording of “not currently employed” implies she was already gone. Maybe around the time she posted her 38th awful thing.

      People who think it’s about this one post either weren’t following the situation, or they are being disingenuous.

    • Kkat says:

      That’s not good he part she was wrong about.
      She was wrong to compare JEWS being horribly murdered and tortured by their neighbors.
      To Republicans getting consequences for being shit bags

    • Elizabeth says:

      It’s because of anti-Semitism specifically though, not vague “cultural differences.” She tried to erase the Jewishness. You can’t compare. Jewishness is an identity, not a political opinion.

  21. Rowan says:

    She is a garbage human. I love the Star Wars universe and I’m glad she is gone. There is no reason it should have taken this long. Ps. That yellow dress though gurl is not a good look.

  22. grabbyhands says:

    Disney gets a tiny cookie for this.

    She showed her ass ages ago and they kept her around because racists fanboys are a huge part of the Star Wars fandom unfortunately, and they are pandered to constantly. The reason she kept harping on this garbage is because she felt empowered to do so and she (and they) knew that the political climate up until a couple months ago made it a safe place to hide. Now there’s a new sheriff in town and people are getting called out, they can’t let it slide as much.

    I do wonder how the He Man Woman Haters club that makes up so much of their fan base reconciles their hatred of Kathleen Kennedy and how her “SJW feminist agenda” is retroactively ruining their childhood with defending an actress as supposedly being persecuted for being Republican? I guess it only counts if you’re a fascist.

  23. Nina Simone says:

    It’s amazing to me that the MAGAs see themselves as oppressed? What in the cognitive dissonance hell?! They with their fascist ways are really comparing themselves with the persecuted Jewish communities of Nazi Germany?! This is insane- like her post makes absolutely no sense. The other day, Ted Cruz called us the “fascist left.” Do they not understand that they’ve pledged undying fealty to a hitler-esque movement ? I’m just so blown away. This country is so wild right now.

  24. FF says:

    lol, Well that’s that. I legit thought they were going to drag it out.

    Wonder how they’ll write her character out?

    Abusers (e.g. bigots, racists, white supremacists) always want to compare their behavior to those abused by said actions. Also, they want to do anything without consequences. It’s weird as hell. Good for Disney for firing her.

    The irony of the company founded by Walt Disney firing someone for their antisemitism…

    Good news! This allows them to have Timothy Olyphant as the perfect sidekick and add some sexy to the show. PLEASE DO IT!!!

    WOW this is bad!

    Former NRA spokesperson and overall miserable excuse for a human Dana Loesch was trying to organize a boycott of Disney+ on Twitter for firing her dear friend Gina. Don’t see that going far.

      Judging from Disney’s careful wording though they might not actually have fired her. More like simply not renewed the contract or negotiated a new one, thus not giving her continuing and additional work.

    Like so many of her ilk, she thought she was free from consequences for her words and actions. Nope. What gets me…they were still going to give her her own show as late as November and she couldn’t keep it together. Nope. She had to fly that ignorance flag and spout every insane and wrong statement about the election, COVID and Trans people for Disney and the world to see. Bye, Felecia!

    I don’t think those boobs are meant for space travel.

  32. Kathryn says:

    She’s awful. I’m surprised she wasn’t at the Capitol on January 6. A deserved cancel

    Well rid. And she looks hideous in the satin-y dress and the headband.
