The fire Gina Carano crowd was back on Twitter Wednesday attempting to cancel the former MMA fighter turned actress for a social media post she shared on her Instagram story. The post was critical of the treatment of people based on their political views and made a comparison between that and the Nazi's treatment of Jewish people.
"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?"
The social media outrage, which isn't new to "The Mandalorian" star, apparently worked and she was "fired" from a job she no longer had. Lucasfilm issued a statement saying they "had no plans for her" to be employed with them in the future.
From Page Six:
“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 to the Hollywood Reporter on Wednesday.
“Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable,” the statement continued.
Cancel culture has stepped up their game. They're going after jobs you don't have anymore. It's an interesting way to spend your time for sure.
On a serious note, we can all take something away from this and that is stop comparing things to the Nazis treatment of Jewish people. Far too many people, from every political point of view, make outrageous comparisons to the treatment of Jewish people and it's idiotic to do so.
