As previously reported, the actress was fired from the Lucasfilm and Disney series after she took to social media to, as Lucasfilm described it, post “heinous” material comparing the currently divided political climate in the United States. to Nazi Germany. This made “#FireGinaCarano” all the rage and ultimately it was.
In the interview with Shapiro, she explained that Pascal was not fired for posting a 2018 tweet in which he compared undocumented children in cages in the United States to Jews in concentration camps. Shapiro points out how it seemed like a double standard that Disney and Lucasfilm didn’t take similar action with Pascal as they did with Carano.
Gina Carano will open up about the release of ‘Mandalorian’ in her first interview: “I’m not the only one who has been bullied by this company”
“I love Pedro,” Carano said in the interview. “I know he said and did hurtful things. “But we got a deal after realizing we were a little different politically. We had an agreement that, above all, you are a human being. And you are my friend first.
She said that they are both passionate about their beliefs and she recognizes that they think differently due to their different experiences. “I know we both acted badly on our tweets,” she said. “We are not perfect. We are human beings. But he’s not a bad human being. He is a gentle person.
After the #FireGinaCarano trend hit, she said Disney was looking at her ‘like a hawk’. She brought up the double standard and said that while this was all going on, she saw people in the same production saying whatever they wanted. “I had a problem because I didn’t accept the story,” she says.
In the interview, she also said: “I am not the only one who has been bullied by this company, and I know it so deeply. I could share a story that would make a difference in the media, but I can’t because it would sell a friend… everyone is afraid of losing their job.
