    You children still whining about this? Fascinating.

    But tell me more about the evils of cancel culture while you try to get Pascal fired as some pathetic form of revenge. It pleases me.

    Well, she is a woman, so even with proof of her wrongdoing she still has a shield against any consequences of her actions, for a time at least. If she stopped it in time, she would have been fine. Now, if she was a guy, she would have been dropped within 24 hours, even without any kind of proof of anything (like lately Manson being cut out of American Gods because Delores wrote a blog post on IG). And while in Manson's case more women came out, so probably there's some truth to their words, however the fact that he got axed before any of it came out, simply on the word of one single woman with a vendetta against him, a word on fucking instagram...yeah, society was a mistake.

    I've seen this sentiment a lot, but this has happened before, except it was with someone on the other end of the political spectrum. Chuck Wendig, author of the Aftermath novels (A major cornerstone of post-RotJ lore in canon; Aftermath is where Cobb Vanth came from, for example), was fired after going on extreme left political rants on his Twitter.

    Bigger characters are actually a lot more likely to be recast...because those characters are important.

    Cara Dune just isn't that important.

    SW is a universe of time jumps and many minor characters in a large galaxy that just vanish due to the vastness space.

    We could never see Cara again and the story would be fine.


    Or now that the show is a proven success with the character also being somewhat successful, they have reasons to hire a better actor for the role.

    I'm not trying to get someone fired, I'm saying it's a double standard.

    Again double standard, people who call it out are children, it's an issue with Gina, but not with Pedro. Just admit it. No reason to be simple and call people children over it.

    I kept trying to find Carano's anti-Semitic tweets. Can't seem to find any. Even the ones she deleted weren't anti-Semitic. Can anyone link them?

    Even the anti masker rhetoric and voter fraud posts? She collected bad far right takes like pokemon, people have been wondering for months how Disney hadn't done anything with her yet. The whole comparing republicans feeling persecuted to jewish people being actually killed during the holocaust was just the straw that broke the camel's back.

    Nope. I just pay attention to the show and see all the other badass women on it, all of which are better actors. No need for Gina going forward.

    It was part of an instagram story that is no longer active.

    Facing repercussions for actions isn't cancel culture. People are fired all the time over things they say and do. Your basic bottom of the barrel retail employee can get fired for bringing negative attention to the company. Cancel culture would be if Disney forced Lego to re-issue the sets her character appears in order to replace it. Her story arc was over on the show and her spin off wasn't happening like originally planned.

    Look at all the people in here cheering her being fired. I bet if she made a twitter post comparing half of the united states populace to confederates and nazis she would have been fired on the spot...shit that was Pedro, my bad, "he's good because he's one of us"

    You guys don't even try and pretend you don't live by a double standard anymore.

    Lucasfilm has killed StarWars, it's dead to me and I do not care anymore. The stories suck now, the characters suck now, you can fit a death star in the plot holes "Rey I have something I need to tell you!". Mandalorian wasn't even that good, it was average at best and that was light years better than the hot garbage that has been released lately. The people making decisions at Lucasfilm are too worried about pronouns, politics, and crucifying anyone with a different opinion that isn't their own than to worry about making a good Star Wars universe.

    “Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views,”

    If this was the tweet that did it - then that is really distrubing.
    (noting her allegedly transphobic bio - she apologised for, and the Blindfold/mask meme retweet)

    As a foreigner - it actually does look really bad how extreme both of your political parties are getting. The point is a valid one re: The progressive institutionalised hatred of a particular group of people. That said, companies lose significant amounts of money when activist consumer groups take action following on from social media posts so I wouldn't blame Disney for what they've said/done. They ultimately have to protect investors and avoiding controversy is nearly always the right thing to do.

    What scares me most is how quickly, vindictively and earnestly those on social media call for heads to roll.

    I'd say this for many reasons but gee i'm glad I dont live in America. That country looks shitter by the day.

    Why is it a problem she was fired if everything about her character, the show it appeared on, and modern star wars sucks? That is the problem with blanket hate. It makes poor arguments.

    First off, allow me to pretense this post by saying that I consider myself Liberal and often times disagree with Conservatives a great deal on issues of politics and the direction of the country. With that said, I condemn the act of dragging Conservatives like Gina out of her home, beating her, sexually assaulting her, rounding up her and her entire family and herding them along side their fellow conservatives into the gas chambers where they were then murdered. Executing people for their opinions is an atrocity. And by gassing Gina, I feel Disney has inadvertently proven her point. I will never stop fighting for the day in which the worst thing that a company can do to conservatives is to simply terminate their employment with said company which is their right as a right to work place of business.

    What shocks me is how everyday people keep letting this happening and fuelling it. they sit down and let themselves get censored, and herded, and they're still on twitter and reddit, instead of boycotting all these jokers.

    Oh how easily it can get worse than that, what do you think comes after cancelling their jobs? All of this is not driven by anything good.

    Disney has the right to terminate any of their employees for any reason that is not protected under federal law or by contract. All but one state has at will employment if I remember correctly. Your rape fantasy and other hyperbole doesn't change the fact that actions have consequences. Intolerance and other extreme views do not have to be tolerated simply because you might have your feelings hurt.

    There is a reason why the phrase "They said the quiet parts out loud" exists.
