Disney boss BOB CHAPEK is convinced officials were not taking sides with politics when they fired GINA CARANO from THE MANDALORIAN.
The actress was fired from her role as Cara Dune in the Star Wars spinoff series on Disney + last month (February 21) after comparing being conservative in America to the persecution of Jews in Nazi Germany .
Executives at Disney-owned Lucasfilm have decided to cut ties with Gina Carano for what they saw as “odious and unacceptable” remarks, and now Chapek has defended the move in an investor appeal on Tuesday (09 Mar 21 ).
“I don’t really see Disney as being characterized as leaning to the left or to the right, but instead of defending values,” Chapek explained in response to the drama surrounding Gina Carano’s dismissal.
“Universal values. Values of respect. Values of decency. Values of integrity and values of inclusion. “(MT / BAN / LOT)
