Gina Carano Was Fired From The Mandalorian For Breaching Values That Are 'Universal'

Disney's CEO Bob Chapek has spoken out after Gina Carano was fired from The Mandalorian over a set of bizarre social media posts.

Carano played Cara Dune in the Star Wars spin-off show for two seasons, but was fired shortly after sharing a post in which she appeared to compare the treatment of Republicans in America to Jewish people living under the Nazi regime.

During an annual shareholder's meeting, Mr Chapek was asked in a Q&A about whether the company had a 'blacklist' of things that employees aren't allowed to say.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the CEO doesn't see the company as particularly 'left-leaning or right-leaning' but instead upholds 'values that are universal: Values of respect, values of decency, values of integrity and values of inclusion'.

He added: "And we seek to have the content that we make reflective of the rich diversity of the world we live in. And I think that's a world we should all live in harmony and peace."

Carano had already been facing calls from critics for her to be dumped from The Mandalorian due to her views on the coronavirus pandemic.

However, the final nail in the coffin came during an outburst on Twitter.

She wrote: "Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbours... even by children.

"Because history is edited, most people today don't realise that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbours hate them simply for being Jews.

"How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?"

Since her firing, Carano has since hit back against 'cancel culture' and decried that you can't say things anymore because you're always going to offend someone.

She even claimed Disney was bullying her.

In a chat with Ben Shapiro last month, the TV star said: "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.

"I'm not the only one that's ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply.

"I could share a story which would turn things around in the media but I can't because it would sell out a friend... Everyone is afraid of losing their job."
