Gina Carano talks Kathleen Kennedy and South Park
Gina Carano reminds everyone how right South Park Is. Twitter’s entertainment page was all about the new Paramount+ special event this weekend South Park: Joining the Panderverse, which satirizes modern film’s obsession with flattery through identity politics. The central targets of the special were Disney and Kathleen Kennedy, president of Disney-owned Lucasfilm. You will recall that Carano was ignominiously fired from her role The Mandalorian – a role that should evolve into leading a new one war of stars Series, New Republic Rangers – after she shared something that was portrayed as controversial and anti-Semitic (which, of course, it wasn’t). Now that Disney and Kennedy are in the spotlight, Carano takes the opportunity to shed some more light on what happened to her behind the scenes by retweeting and commenting on a clip from the special (originally posted by Geeks + Gamers). , what happens South Park In response, creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone can expect the following:
This is the part where KK demands that all creators be censored by YouTube for sharing and laughing at this hilarious episode. She’ll make YouTube turn off the thumbs down option based on the quota she gets, and then she’ll have her publicist ghouls watch for variety and…

Gina Carano has I’ve already talked about some of this, like Kennedy trying to force her to be insulted by activists on a Zoom call (which is nothing more than an exercise in humiliation, and Carano was right not to do it). We largely assumed the rest, but she could have known for sure. And good; After using the full force of a powerful corporation to get rid of her, Carano is completely justified in moving on now that Disney is on the ropes. The post she shared that allegedly led to her firing was widely seen as an excuse to let her go because of her alleged conservative views in the past. The funniest of which was that their pronouns were “beep” and “boop” ;” The actions taken against them by Disney and Kennedy reinforce this.
But it didn’t take long for the defenders to abandon their forces and defend Disney and Lucasfilm. A war of stars Talk show called Around the galaxy tweeted a screenshot of her post and said that Carano had “lost her damn mind.” Carano responded with a lengthy retort in which she not only defended herself but also talked about what a company or executive interested in preserving their franchise could have done differently:
Do you always call a woman crazy just because she has more first-hand experience than you and says something you don’t like or understand?
A bit misogynistic, don’t you think? Tsk tsk.

This has always been the divide between the two sides of this argument; One can offer suggestions and solutions, the other just insults. What’s funny is that South Park: Joining the Panderverse Ultimately, he appeals to both sides to come together and move forward by admitting their mistakes and trying to make the films and series better. If you look at real life, one side was willing to do this; the first two seasons of The Mandalorian were quite popular, with the second season finale revitalizing much of the fandom. There was an opportunity to do just that South Park recommended. Then they fired Gina Carano (who was a fan favorite) for what everyone knew was petty politics, and in a flash it was gone. Some circles think so Join the Panderverse will change the conversation about vigilance in the entertainment industry; I’m not sure, but I’m glad Gina Carano is doing her part to help.
