As detailed in a report on the recent firing of actress Gina Carano from the cast of Disney’s “The Mandalorian” series for comments about political division in the United States, it has come to light that the company is committed to a leftist agenda.
In a publication by The Hollywood Reporter, Juda Engelmayer, a crisis public relations consultant, stated that anything that offends the political left is a problem and that his clients strive for their social media posts not to generate outrage among left-leaning views.
“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,” Engelmayer said.
Engelmayer claims his clients actively promote left-leaning views. “I have clients who are making an extraordinary effort to post what the social left wants to see,” he noted.
According to the report, not only is Disney committed to left-wing ideas, but it is also seeking to remove responsibility from “The Mandalorian’s” executive producers Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni in Carano’s firing.
“The decision to banish Carano from Disney’s realm went beyond ‘Mandalorian’ creator Jon Favreau and was made by Lucasfilm executives,” The Hollywood Reporter noted.
Carano said she wanted to send “a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice, which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same.”
The actress revealed to New York Times expert Bari Weiss that she had learned of her dismissal once the rumor began circulating on social media, meaning Favreau and Filoni also didn’t take the time to formally communicate the decision.
“I found out through social media, like everyone else, that I had been fired,” Carano indicated.
According to the magazine, the actress had been repeatedly warned by those around her about her social media behavior.
According to Daily Wire, in the interview with Weiss, the actress also said she had been somewhat confused when certain people claimed that her comments were anti-Semitic. “Should I take it down or leave it up? I still don’t know the answer to that question, because taking it down just makes the mob attack you more,” Carano said.
Among the Social media users who commented on the controversy also pointed to an image shared by Carano in December where several elderly people were seen sitting around a monopoly table representing power over different industries around the world.
The image likewise made Weiss curious and he said, “At first glance, that image looks as if it’s a visual representation of the ‘Protocols of the Elders of Zion.'”
“When old men, money, a globe, and a secret meeting are in one picture, my mind screams ‘Jews!’ But it seems that, to a lot of people, it genuinely does not, perhaps because there are no explicitly Jewish symbols,” added the journalist.
Carano added, “The image for me was a statement that people need to stand together and rise up, stop being so manipulated by the powers that believe they know what’s best for you and play games with our lives,” indicating that she has respect for the Jewish community.
Meanwhile, a Lucasfilm source stated that he does not expect the character Cara Dune, the role Carano played, to be reprised, assuring that she was not part of the Dec. 10 presentation and was not engaged in negotiations for future work.
