I can’t scroll 10cm down Facebook without seeing another five articles about Gina Carano, who in her last straw of a post compared conservative Americans to Jews being persecuted by Nazis, was fired by Lucasfilm.
I’m tired of them. So without a hint of irony, I’m contributing to them. OK, maybe a little hint.
For the record, she had it coming. She’s said some stupid shit, and nobody stopped her from saying it. In fact, she’s still going, now claiming to be more free than ever and will be making a movie. She even said she won’t live in “fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob” so, let’s just admit then that cancel culture isn’t a thing. She was not censored. She still hasn’t shut the fuck up. She’s just facing consequences for her words, and that’s fair. So there’s no need to invoke free speech rights, as she hasn’t lost any.
“The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams—to develop and produce my own film—come true,” she shared with Deadline on Friday, Feb. 12. “I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob.”
Do the conservacucks who suddenly care so much about “cancel culture” remember Colin Kaepernick? Do you?
Why are you defending her anyway? The part she plays in the Mandalorian is pretty generic. Anyone could play it… Any backstory for a fighter with some rebellion history would suffice. They haven’t even fleshed it out. She mostly stands around. They can get someone else to stand around – it’ll be OK. She can’t even act to begin with.
