The troubles at Disney continue to pile up.
The once-proud family entertainment monolith has gone woke, and it’s not going well for them.
Now star actress Gina Carano says she was told by Disney execs to take one action that raised a ‘huge red flag.’
Star actress and former mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano blasted her former employers at Disney-owned Lucasfilm, saying she was asked by the company to “unfollow” any social media accounts that were critical of Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
South Park takes Disney to the woodshed
The claims came just two days after Carano’s comments about Kennedy regarding a recent South Park episode.
The cartoon depicted the embattled studio head using a magical device to pander to audiences instead of coming up with unique storylines.
And not only that, they accused her of opting to simply replace the race and sex of characters in popular stories.
Carano was famously fired from the popular Star Wars series The Mandalorian in 2021 for comments she made or liked on social media that mocked mask-wearing and made claims about voter fraud.
The Mandalorian was produced by Lucasfilm.
Carano’s recent posts made no doubt about her view of Kennedy.
“This is the part where [Kennedy] demands any YouTubers get censored off of YouTube for sharing and laughing at this hilarious episode, she’ll have YouTube disable the thumbs down option because of the ratio she’ll receive,” Carano wrote on X.
And the attacks on Carano began immediately.
A popular Star Wars-related podcast called Around the Galaxy showed a screenshot of the actress’ comments and said she had lost her mind.
“In case you were wondering, [Gina Carano] has lost her goddamned mind,” the show wrote.
More experience than you
Carano did not take that sitting down.
She blasted the podcasters with a scathing 700-word response that included some new claims against the Disney-owned studio.
“Do you always call a woman crazy just because she has more first hand experience than you?” Carano asked.
“For some added context, not just for you but for the people reading, one of the things your overlords asked me to do was to unfollow certain accounts because they ‘said bad thing about Kathleen Kennedy.’ That was a huge red flag for me,” she revealed.
“If I were the head of one of the most powerful entertainment companies in the world, I would know that haters come with the territory,” Carano went on.
The actress then spoke about what many believe is an oversaturation of the Star Wars franchise under Disney.
She then commented that much of it is to “virtue signal.”
“One of the problems your overlords are having now is that they’ve made a lot of people completely stop caring about one of the most beloved franchises in history, all by bullying, pushing aggressive agendas & trying to silence the people criticizing them.”
“They fired & dehumanized people like me who did absolutely nothing wrong, all to virtue signal to people like you, the Yes Men. But Yes Men unfortunately for you & them, do not drive culture.”
In addition to The Mandalorian, Carano was in films such as Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool before being largely blackballed by Hollywood.
She also had a successful MMA career from 2006 to 2009, with a record of 7-1.
Clearly, she hasn’t lost her combative edge and has become a spokesperson for commonsense and conservative views.
