Actress and former mixed martial arts fighter Gina Carano continued to blast her former employers at Lucasfilm, which is owned by Disney, implying that she was asked by the company to “unfollow” accounts that were critical of Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.
The claims came just two days after Carano’s viral comments about Kennedy regarding a recent “South Park” episode. The cartoon depicted the studio head using a magical device to pander to audiences instead of coming up with unique storylines, opting to simply replace the race of characters in popular stories.
Carano was fired from the popular Star Wars series “The Mandalorian” in 2021 for comments on social media that mocked mask-wearing and made claims about voter fraud. The show was produced by Lucasfilm.
“This is the part where [Kennedy] demands any YouTubers get censored off of YouTube for sharing and laughing at this hilarious episode, she’ll have YouTube disable the thumbs down option because of the ratio she’ll receive,” Carano wrote on X.
A popular Star Wars-related podcast called “Around the Galaxy” took a screenshot of the actress’ comments and said she had lost her mind.
“In case you were wondering, [Gina Carano] has lost her goddamned mind,” the show wrote.
Carano blasted the account with a 700-word response that included new claims about the Disney-operated studio.
“Do you always call a woman crazy just because she has more first hand experience than you?” Carano began.
“For some added context, not just for you but for the people reading, one of the things your overlords asked me to do was to unfollow certain accounts because they ‘said bad thing about Kathleen Kennedy.’ That was a huge red flag for me,” she revealed.
“If I were the head of one of the most powerful entertainment companies in the world, I would know that haters come with the territory,” Carano continued.
The actress then spoke to what many agree is an oversaturation of the Star Wars franchise under Disney and remarked that much of it is to “virtue signal.”
“One of the problems your overlords are having now is that they’ve made a lot of people completely stop caring about one of the most beloved franchises in history, all by bullying, pushing aggressive agendas & trying to silence the people criticizing them.”
“They fired & dehumanized people like me who did absolutely nothing wrong, all to virtue signal to people like you, the Yes Men. But Yes Men unfortunately for you & them, do not drive culture.”
Carano was in films such as “Fast & Furious 6” and “Deadpool” before her Hollywood excommunication. She also had a successful MMA career from 2006 to 2009, with a record of 7-1 as one of the pioneers of female combat sports.
