Ben Shapiro to rescue! Movie deal with fired Star Wars actress

Gina Carano Hits Back, Announces New Movie Project With Ben Shapiro’s Daily Wire: “They Can’t Cancel Us If We Don’t Let Them”

https://deadline.com/2021/02/gina-carano-mandalorian-ben-shapiro-hits-back-cancel-culture-1234692971/

EXCLUSIVE: Less than 24 hours after her explosive ouster from Star Wars series The Mandalorian for incendiary social media posts, Gina Carano has hit back at her detractors and revealed a new movie project she is making with conservative website The Daily Wire.

Carano told us today: “The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”

“We could not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left. This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob,” said Daily Wire co-founder Shapiro.


The actress raised hell by sharing a TikTok post comparing the current divided political climate in the U.S. to Nazi Germany.

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. 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,” she wrote.

12. Cameron and Sorbo are way better actors

Absolutely fine for what they did on TV. Gina sucks as an actor.

10. What they call cancel culture is

 

What they call cancel culture is what they used to call “the market deciding”.

Fuck these people it is always some excuse for their actions.

4. Probably make about $20

Which would be about double what his last movie made.

Carano has star power.

5. Jesus Christ! The sheer stupidity!

"How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” she wrote.

It's very different from hating someone because of their political views!

There are a lot of people I have hated because of their political views. And I have never once, even once, encouraged my neighbors or anyone else to beat them up and ship them off to death camps.

God what a bunch of whiners!...

18. I'll be honest

I dont know where to find a death camp these days.

How exactly did Trumps lawyers mispronounce Mike Pence’s name?
I can sort of see the Rafensberger Roethlisberger thing.

She can join Kirstie Alley and others in the dustbin of acting history...(although she never made it so far)...

Nice career move, Gina.

16. Exclusive to Daily Wire members only too

Shapiro markets the hell out of his site but there’s no way to match the Disney + numbers.

15. First off,

if she gets paid and the check doesn't bounce, it will be a fraction of what she was paid for a single episode of The Madalorian.

Once whatever Christo-fascist wankfest bombs and fails to make bank, even that type of money will disappear. I would say that she will then have to rely on the sci-fi con circuit to make money, except that no con would have her as a guest. So, that would leave gun shows and wrestling events.

17. To premier on YouTube this summer!

Wingnut actress has decided not to attempt redemption, but has dived in the deep end of stupidity.
