KISS Demolishes Disney Over Cancel Culture & Backs Gina Carano! Costs Lucy Lawless Star Wars Role?

TheQuartering [10/1/2021]

Disney is constantly in the hot seat.

According to WeGotThisCovered:

Fan casting is nothing new. Whenever a new show is announced people head to social media to talk about their dream casting choices. However, Lucy Lawless’s recent comments has shown that this practice, while fun, can have a downside for performers. 

In February, Gina Carano was fired from Disney+ hit The Mandalorian after making a series of controversial tweets that Disney deemed inappropriate for someone under their employment. This statement was echoed by Lucasfilm, who, when asked about Carano, said:

Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.

This means that Carano’s role as Cara Dune was now open, and fans quickly started to argue about who could take over the character. Lucy Lawless, the former Xena: Warrior Princess star, soon became the clear fan favorite, with many tweeting directly at Disney and Lucasfilm to request her inclusion in the series.
