Bob Chapek Addresses Gina Carano’s Removal From The Mandalorian
Last month, Lucasfilm parted ways with The Mandalorian actress Gina Carano following several social media controversies. Carano has gone on to claim that she was bullied by the company for being a conservative. During a Disney shareholder meeting earlier today, Disney CEO Bob Chapek was specifically asked about a “double standard” against conservatives.
According to Deadline, Chapek replied that he doesn’t “really see Disney as characterizing itself as left-leaning or right-leaning.” He also said that Disney stands “for values that are universal: respect, decency, integrity and inclusion 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.”
The stockholder’s contention was that Carano and her former co-star, Pedro Pascal, committed the same offense. In 2018, Pascal described ICE’s practice of putting immigrant children in cages to Nazi concentration camps. Whereas Carano compared being a conservative in America to being a Jewish person in Nazi Germany.
However, Carano’s social media offenses also included misinformation about the 2020 election. She also appeared to mock trans people and anyone who wore masks to prevent COVID. Additionally, Carano was reportedly warned several times to tone down her rhetoric online. Her refusal essentially paved the way for her dismissal.
