This could make your Disney+ subscription go up, but that really isn’t the bigger picture! What’s really happening here is a famous Conservative actress is taking a stand after she was fired by Disney, suing them in court and accusing the company of discrimination and terminating her wrongfully. Of course, the court will decide what happens next, but this is her story and Disney has been falling apart with woke nonsense for quite some time. If there’s a lawsuit to keep tabs on, then Gina Carano’s story certainly is it. And you know, maybe Disney needs to learn a lesson and stop with the woke nonsense. Afterall, they did feature a full grown man in a dress working at a store that sells princess dresses to little girls. If that wasn’t repulsive, let alone confusing to kids, then I don’t know what is.
Gina Carano was known for playing Cara Dune on The Mandalorian until she got fired by the Disney-owned company Lucasfilm over some controversial social media posts. She believes she was discriminated against and wrongfully fired, and now her lawsuit is her way of taking legal action. Carano was also accused of mocking pronouns when she put robot noises in her profile. But to be honest, most people mock the pronoun people anyway (why do they always look the same?), so that shouldn’t be an issue. But there must have been a complaint or someone at Lucasfilm who uses pronouns, which partially explains the insanity behind all of this. You know the saying, if someone hands in a job application with pronouns, then put it right in the paper shredder and don’t look back. You can save yourself a lifetime of screaming Karen incidents by not hiring pronoun weirdos. Should you mock people who use pronouns? I guess it’s one of those things where if we ignore it long enough, will it go away? Kinda like that skin lesion on your thigh that no one wants to address… but hey, whatever man…
And now, the story goes deeper than that. She’s also backed by billionaire Elon Musk who can afford pretty much any legal team on the planet, which is bad news for Disney who’s already losing money on woke project failures. Now they’ve got this to deal with? Not good. Good thing there’s websites like IGN to fill us in on the little details. They did a report on Gina Carano’s lawsuit against Disney that said:
Spotted first by The Hollywood Reporter, which also published the lawsuit in full, Carano’s legal counsel filed a complaint in the United States District Court Central District of California today. Carano alleges that she was terminated from her role because “she dared voice her own opinions on social media platforms and elsewhere.”
The former MMA fighter also published a statement on X/Twitter, in which she revealed that Elon Musk is funding the lawsuit, citing the tech entrepreneur’s previous pledge to fund any legal action for X/Twitter users who faced workplace discrimination because of their activity on the social media platform.
Instead of going through Gina Carano’s statement piece by piece and talking about it, I just copy/pasted it here for you to read on your own. She posted it on X and it’s pretty long, like the welfare and unemployment lines in Democrat cities. Read it below or check her out on X.
Today is an important day for me–I am filing a lawsuit against @lucasfilm
After my 20 years of building a career from scratch, and during the regime of former Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Lucasfilm made this statement on Twitter, terminating me from The Mandalorian: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm & there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural & religious identities are abhorrent & unacceptable.”
Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is I was being hunted down from everything I posted to every post I liked because I was not in line with the acceptable narrative of the time. My words were consistently twisted to demonize & dehumanize me as an alt right wing extremist. It was a bullying smear campaign aimed at silencing, destroying & making an example out of me.
The thing is I never even used aggressive language. I shared thought provoking quotes, pictures, memes & occasionally I used my own words, not with aggression but with respect & the occasional comedy to keep the mood light in dark times.
Look with your own eyes at what I posted and ask yourself, for example, where did I compare Republicans to the Jewish people in the holocaust? I didn’t. Ask yourself why they were calling me a racist, was there any merit behind that or history of it whatsoever? No. Look at why I was called a transphobe–for making droid noises from Star Wars? “Beep, bop, boop” was obviously directed to the online bullies and did not in any way denigrate transgender people.
Were my questions about masks, lockdowns & forced vaccines ok to ask & push the subject into the light? Should we have been allowed to publicly discuss those topics at that time without being harassed or censored? Absolutely.
Hollywood says they support female representation & equal rights. Why then were my male co-stars permitted to speak without harassment & re-education courses or termination, but I was not afforded the same right to exercise my freedom of speech.
Artists do not sign away our rights as American citizens when we enter into employment. I have spoken to all my co-stars since I was fired & there is nothing but care and kind words between us. I respect their right to free speech & do not have to think the same on every issue to be their friends & work with them & I know they feel the same towards me.
A couple months ago @ElonMusk
tweeted that if you had been fired from using the platform (X) for exercising your right to free speech, he would like to offer these people legal representation. Quite the noble offer, but never in my wildest dreams would I have thought anyone would take on my case against Lucasfilm/Disney. Still, I did respond back “I think I qualify” & thousands of people agreed–but I did not expect anything.
To my surprise, a few months ago I received an email from a lawyer who had been hired by X to look into my story & many others. Turns out after sending them as much information as I could gather these past few months, my now lawyers & X believe whole-heartedly in my case & are moving forward.
I would like to express my deepest gratitude & thank you to @ElonMusk & @X for giving me an opportunity to bring my case to light.
As for me, I would love to pick up where I left off & continue my journey of creating & participating in story-telling, which is my utmost passion & everything I worked so hard for. It has been difficult to move forward with the lies & labels stuck on me, backed & encouraged by the most powerful entertainment company in the world. I am grateful someone has come to my defense in such a powerful way & look forward to clearing my name.
Thank you to all the people who have supported me & made your voices heard. I pray God blesses each & every one of you.
