Will it shut down the entire company? No, of course not. But it’s good to see people putting their money where their mouth is.
There are some really bizarre things going on at Disney today, and I’m looking forward to getting into them with you. I guess I should preface this by saying that the article you are reading will be somewhat based on rumors, although you can take a look at my track record when it comes to these sorts of things. After all, it was back in January that I reported the following to hundreds of thousands of Pirates and Princesses readers:
“This comes on the heels of rumors we’re receiving that Gina Carano has been told to keep a low profile online, and that she may have been instructed not to raise any additional controversial opinions in the public sphere.” — WDW Pro
Well, let me tell you some more things that we’ve learned since that span of time.
As you probably know, Gina Carano was ceremoniously fired yesterday from her role of Cara Dune, with a public announcement out of Disney that had all the public relations savoir-faire of a below-average fifth grader. In that time, we’ve heard from various sources, including the Hollywood Reporter, that Carano was already on the chopping block since January, with Disney actually looking for ways to can her since November.
Apparently, Carano’s calls for election transparency were too much for the execs over at Disney. More alarming is that we’re hearing from solid sources that Carano was, in fact, fired yesterday after Lucasfilm had grown weary of waiting for her to screw up and so they used the Instagram post she made as a smokescreen.
