    Disney and Lucasfilm canceled Gina Carano (who played Cara Dune in "The Mandalorian") for an Instagram post in which she claimed that people shouldn't spread hate over politics (because convincing people to hate their neighbors is the first step in convincing them to kill their neighbors). Following Gina being fired, #CancelDisneyPlus​ trended on Twitter, and today, Gina is trending as the most popular celebrity on the planet, according to IMDB. Let's see how Disney reacts to the news.

    The National Football League did not have a very good year in terms of television ratings. Though, you wouldn’t know that based on what they’re asking their broadcast partners to pay. The NFL is asking their broadcast partners – NBC, Fox, CBS, ESPN (Disney) – to pay double what they have been paying for the right to broadcast NFL games. However, Disney-owned ESPN is throwing sand in the NFL’s gears.
  • Disney slaps ‘The Muppet Show’ with ‘offensive content’ disclaimer

    Even the Muppets are “offensive” these days. Anyone who streams “The Muppet Show” on Disney+ will see a declaimer first — warning of “offensive content.” Disney released five seasons of the iconic show for streaming on Friday, allowing viewers to enjoy watching Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and their celebrity guests as part of its $6.99-a-month service. The disclaimer shown prior to each episode warns viewers that the show features “stereotypes” and “mistreatment of people or cultures.” “This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” the...

    Play the music, light the lights… and slap on the disclaimer? Select episodes of The Muppet Show — which began streaming on Disney+ on Friday, Feb. 19 — have been hit with a disclaimer citing “negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.” “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now,” the disclaimer reads. “Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.” The warning message continues: “Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity...

    The Muppet Show appears to be the latest victim of political correctness with new warnings over its historic content. The adventures of Kermit the Frog, Animal, Miss Piggy and friends now come with an alert about 'offensive content' and can only be seen on an adult account. The move came to light when Disney made five series available last Friday on its streaming service, which costs £5.99 a month.

    Gina Carano, the conservative actress who was fired from the hit series The Mandalorian for comparing the political climate to the Nazi era, claims her former bosses at Lucasfilm and Disney were 'watching her like a hawk' before her ouster. ‘I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,’ the former mixed martial artist tells Ben Shapiro of The Daily Wire in an interview set to air on Sunday. DailyMail.com has sought comment from both Lucasfilm and Disney.

    Toy industry giant Hasbro has ceased production on the “Cara Dune” action figure following Gina Carano’s firing from Disney’s streaming series The Mandalorian. On Monday, online retailer BigBadToyStore announced it would cancel all existing preorders of Cara Dune action figures in response to outrage over Carano’s social media profiles — which prompted Lucasfilm, owned by Disney, to fire her from the popular show. Carano faced backlash after linking modern American cancel culture to the Holocaust in a since-deleted message. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a...

    Lucasfilm’s firing of Gina Carano may go down as one of the more 'textbook' examples of public relations blunders. This past week the studio and its umbrella company Disney detached from Carano, following the latest in a series of social media posts which betrayed the political incorrectness of the former MMA fighter. Carano – who had been portraying rebel-turned-mercenary Cara Dune on the hit Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian – had shared the following on her Instagram account: --snip-- Do note that at no point does Miss Carano refer to Republicans, conservatives, or any other specific ideology. She merely...

    Actress Gina Carano is partnering with The Daily Wire to produce and star in an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members. Carano and The Daily Wire announced the new partnership on Friday, two days after the actress was ousted from her role in the Disney Star Wars spinoff show “The Mandalorian.” Disney cut the actress on Wednesday in what critics alleged was a politically-motivated hit. “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered,” Carano said in a statement...

    The bravest person in Hollywood, by far, is Gina Carano. Unlike Chris Pratt, she does not apologize for water bottles. Instead she openly defies the expectation of putting pronouns in her bio and frequently posts dank memes. But Cancel Culture would mount a major offensive after she posted an image that compared our culture to the culture that cultivated the Holocaust. Although the below image is what got her terminated, it’s really her beliefs they hate.This image was rather tame. Basically, a culture that dehumanizes people will eventually exterminate these people systematically. The authorial intent was likely to point out...

    This won't take long. Gina Carano portrays the character Cara Dune in the Mandalorian series currently running on Disney Plus. Or rather, she did. Carano has been fired from the series because she veered off the official Disney state path. She dared to have her own opinions. Actress Gina Carano has been booted off “The Mandalorian” after she penned a social media post that compared being a Republican to being Jewish in Nazi Germany. The former MMA fighter — who played Cara Dune in the hit Disney+ show — was also dumped by United Talent Agency (UTA), Variety reported. “Gina...

    “The Mandalorian” star Pedro Pascal is having a big week — expressing support for his trans sister on Instagram, the announcement of a new TV role and some Twitter drama in light of his colleague Gina Carano’s firing. On Twitter, some pulled Pascal’s name into the controversy surrounding former MMA fighter Carano’s recent firing from “The Mandalorian,” following a social media post in which the 38-year-old actress compared being a Republican to being Jewish in Nazi Germany. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson...

    Disney reportedly cut ties this week with conservative actress Gina Carano, one of the stars of Lucasfilm’s hit TV series “The Mandalorian,” on Wednesday. The alleged cause of the firing was a series of posts Carano made on social media that critics claimed were offensive. As The Daily Wire reported, “The post that generated the most controversy was a screenshot of another person’s post that she then posted onto her own Instagram account. The post compared the current politically divisive culture in the U.S. to Nazi Germany.” The screenshot stated: Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers...

    The hashtag #CancelDisneyPlus became a top trend late Wednesday on Twitter after Lucasfilm fired actress Gina Carano from the cast of the popular Disney Plus-Star Wars spinoff series The Mandalorian. Her firing came after Carano shared a social media post that critics say downplayed the experience of Jews during the Holocaust. “Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers buy by their neighbors… even by children,” read one of Carano’s social media posts in question, according to a purported screenshot. “‘Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers...

    Gina Carano is “not currently employed by Lucasfilm,” the company said in a statement Wednesday after controversy erupted over “The Mandalorian” star’s social media posts. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.” Carano shared several offensive posts on her Instagram stories Tuesday night, including one that likened contemporary political differences to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. “Jews were beaten in...

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's husband has placed up to $1 million worth of bullish bets on Tesla stock, the politician revealed in a financial disclosure form last week. Paul Pelosi, who runs an investment firm, bought 25 call options on Tesla stock with a strike price of $500 and an expiration date of March 18, 2022. He spent between $500,001 and $1 million on them on December 22. The call options give him the right to buy 2,500 Tesla shares at $500 each at any point before they expire in March 2022. That may sound like a fantastic deal with...

    A ride that has long been criticized as racist and problematic is finally getting a much-needed update. Today, Disney announced that Jungle Cruise, a boat ride that depicts rivers around the world and what many have called colonialist caricatures of “natives” around them, will be getting an update to remove those problematic depictions. “As Imagineers, it is our responsibility to ensure experiences we create and stories we share reflect the voices and perspectives of the world around us,” Carmen Smith, executive of development and inclusion strategies at Walt Disney Imagineering, said today on the Disney Parks Blog. “With Jungle Cruise,...
