Disney is facing a massive wave of backlash after firing actress Gina Carano after she posted something on social media that somebody somewhere was offended by.
Gee, who would’ve thought that someone could be so easily offended in this day and age, right? After all, progressives are in control of the White House and Congress. Shouldn’t we be drowning in a sea of tolerance, peace, and acceptance?
One of the post that allegedly got Carano fired was written by someone else, which she then took a screenshot of and posted on her Instagram account. The post in question compared the current divisive nature of politics in the United States to events that took place in Nazi Germany.
This led to charges that Carano was equating Republicans with Jews in Nazi Germany.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” Lucasfilm, a production company owned by Disney, said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Disney’s firing of Carano sparked instant widespread backlash online with “#CancelDisneyPlus” rocketing to the very top of Twitter’s trending news list. Carano was one of the stars on Disney+’s “The Mandalorian.”
In response to Carano’s firing, critics noted how Disney rehired a director that had been fired over disturbing sexually explicit tweets, Disney’s business dealings in communist China, and other controversies that the company has faced in recent years.
“Gina Carano’s post made the point that mass violence starts with hatred for your neighbor,” Daily Caller editor Katrina Haydon wrote. “This is not only uncontroversially true but also one perspective of the commandment to love your neighbor. That idea is not a call to empty niceness. It’s how you prevent suffering.”
“The point that Gina Carano’s post made isn’t even a ‘wild take,’ and she certainly isn’t the first person to get cancelled for viewpoints that differ from the woke mob,” Daily Caller reporter Shelby Talcott went on to say. “What a dangerous, sad era to live in — where expressing a particular view could cost you your livelihood.”

Popular Human Events Editor Ian Miles Cheong weighed in on the situation too, bringing up how Disney rehired James Gunn after originally firing him due to sexually explicit posts on his Twitter account, which included mention of children.
“Disney canceled Gina Carano apparently because of a social media post where she highlighted the dangers of dehumanizing others, but they rehired someone who made numerous disturbing remarks about rape and pedophilia,” Cheong said. “Just so you know, this is where Disney stands on morality.”

This is just more proof that conservative need to tell Hollywood to stick it where the sun don’t shine and create their own platforms for storytelling, in all mediums, so that we can show these folks we don’t need them.
A move like this requires conservatives to actually financially support conservative studios and platforms like The Daily Wire which is beginning to dabble in the entertainment industry.
We need to actually start winning the culture war. The first step is to stop giving money to people who hate you.
