In a new article from The Hollywood Reporter about the shocking cancelation and firing of Star Wars actress Gina Carano, we learn that publicists in Los Angeles are warning their clients to keep their social media feeds clean of anything that might prove controversial. And what might that be? Well, THR informs us that means celebrities should “steer clear of politics, especially anything leaning right.”
We’re waiting for some dumb liberal to tell us once again that “cancel culture” is a myth.
“I don’t know what people at Disney personally believe or don’t believe with regard to politics, but as a corporate entity, they want to stay as trouble-free as possible. And anything that’s going to offend the left is a problem,” PR rep Juda Engelmayer told the outlet. “I have clients who are making an extraordinary effort to post what the social left wants to see.”
Carano, as you undoubtedly know, lost her gig with Disney’s “The Mandalorian” after tweeting out her concerns about the current political environment and comparing it to Germany in the days before the Nazis began rounding up Jews and political dissidents. Despite the fact that leftists (including The Mandalorian himself, Pedro Pascal) have been using Nazi allusions for the last four years, Carano was immediately fired.
In a sense, Disney and Lucasfilm did more than Carano could to make her own point for her.
In a conversation with Bari Weiss this week, Carano said that she couldn’t believe the backlash her post received.
“I was in utter shock and confusion when certain people said it was antisemitic,” Carano said. “Then, as I went to take it down, I noticed that the image was not the same as the one people were referencing. I was honestly confused: should I take it down, or leave it up? I still don’t know the answer to that question, because taking it down only makes the mob attack you more.”
You can certainly say that again.
Actually, either way, they won’t stop until you are erased from public life. Feel free to browse the web for the countless articles that have been written, taking unbridled joy in Carano’s cancelation. These cretins LOVE to see conservatives – of any stripe – taken out to the woodshed for their Wrongthink. If it means they get to destroy a career in the process, so much the better! That’ll teach people to think for themselves.
What’s really crazy about all of this is that they actually see themselves as the good guys in this little morality play.
