Gina Carano Claims She Was “Bullied” By Disney

Gina Carano has a lot to say about being fired from The Mandalorian, even though she wasn’t actually fired because she wasn’t an employee, just a guest star. Deadline reports Carano sat down with Lolipop Guild Representative Ben Shapiro to talk about how she was persecuted by Disney for being a conservative.

“I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” the actress will tell Shapiro with whom she has a new movie deal. “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply,” she will claim.

Carano’s persecution complex is what caused Disney to drop her from The Mandalorian in the first place; her comparing being a Republican to being a Jewish victim of the Holocaust was the straw that broke the camel’s back, after all.

Carano goes on to agree with conservative commentator Shapiro that she believes there are double-standards at play at the studio depending on one’s politics. “They’ve been all over me and they’ve been watching me like a hawk, and I’m watching people on the same production and they can say everything they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I wasn’t going along with the narrative… “

Carano says she didn’t want to walk back comments she has made or stop speaking her mind on social media.

“I was prepared at any point to be let go, because I’ve seen this happen to so many people. I’ve seen the looks on their faces. I’ve seen the bullying that takes place, and so when this started, they point their guns at you, and you know it’s only a matter of time. I’ve seen it happen to so many people, and I just thought to myself (…) ‘you’re coming for me, I know you are.’ ” They’re making it very obvious through their employees who were coming for me, and so I was like, ‘I’m going to go down swinging and I’m going to stay true to myself.’ “

I’ve mentioned this before, but Carano’s politics aren’t the problem, the problem is bigotry. Whether or not trans people deserve human rights is not a political position, spreading misinformation about COVID-19 is not a political position and people aren’t exactly getting canceled for calling for lower capital gains taxes or a more aggressive stance with Iran and North Korea. There are plenty of conservative Republican political positions it’s perfectly fine to publicly hold; hell, you can even deny most science not related to the current deadly pandemic, like denying vaccines work or that global warming is real or the Earth is more than 10,000 years old and get plenty of work.

The only person who is actually being unfairly persecuted for being a Republican is Chris Pratt, who isn’t a Republican, he’s just religious and entirely non-political. Chris Pratt isn’t exactly hurting for work and Disney isn’t looking to fire him.
