Women in film groups silent on Disney ‘bullying,’ firing Gina Carano
February 23, 2021
Gina Carano won’t bow to bullies, then or now.
The MMA groundbreaker turned actress opened up to Ben Shapiro about her shocking dismissal from “The Mandalorian.”
Carano described what she called “bullying” tactics Disney deployed to make her apologize for Tweets she said were neither mean-spirited nor worthy of any mea culpas.
“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.”
The studio eventually canned her anyway, as did her talent agency, for a deleted Instagram “story” where she compared cultural conditions happening in the U.S. today to elements that led to the Nazi’s systematic killing of Jews during the Holocaust.
Now, Carano is defending her actions on Shapiro’s “Sunday Special” interview show.
