I only read a few of the tweets, the ones in the articles that reported her firing, and it seems like she was punted for poorly stating her point, i.e. being bad making analogies.

I would guess she was warned before and this was more of a last straw sort of thing.

On a tangent note, everybody sounds dumb when comparing anything in the US to Nazi Germany.

I still can't believe the guy from Swingers has made my favorite Christmas movie....develop/built my 2d favorite movie franchise.... and saved my favorite franchise... Favreau is so money and he

Also the Lady Expendables were awesome. Because they were just awesome. They didn't tell us they were awesome. They didn't have other people go "wow look how awesome they are". They were all individua

Comparing republicans to Holocaust survivors was definitely going too far. I think they were trying to let it smooth over and then she barfed that take out the other night. 

She didn't though. She was saying that jews reached the point in WW2 germany where they were openly persecuted because their neighbors allowed it. Then she asked how is that any different than persecuting people for their political beliefs. What is offensive there? Shes not wrong.

I'm done with disney again. They haven't learned a damn thing. Star wars was on the way back and they just couldn't help themselves. Had to listen to nutjobs on twitter who have been harassing this woman for over a year. Nutjobs who don't even know a single character from Star wars but will happily watch it burn if it serves their religious agenda. 

#### disney. #### Disney wars. I'm out.

Because she's equating the current political climate to the the climate in Nazi Germany.  Do you really think that either side of our political spectrum are receiving the same treatment the Jews received just prior to the Holocaust?  That was the precursor to genocide.

She posted a quote which made no connection to the current political climate. It said persecuted for political beliefs. She was fired because of the non stop onslaught of twitter harassing her for a year. This was just the loose excuse they needed to do it. 

No consistency whatsoever. Their new High Republic host calls the fans white supremacists and says all white people are racist. Nothing. Pedro Pascal compares Trump voters to Nazis literally, not with a metaphor. Nothing. Gina gets harassed by weirdos on twitter, makes a post comparing political persecution and how it can get worse with no specific correlations, fired. 

Done.

I'd missed that one. Lots of actors aren't too sharp.

Come on now, you're just being obtuse here.

As for the rest, I'm not familiar with what they've let slide versus not but in the context of her tweets absolutely was enough justification.

People just need to stop with the Nazi Germany comparisons.

Exactly. We can take this thread way off the rails with all the #### Disney has done and let slide. #### them for feeding into this current day hysteria. They had their second chance and shat the bed.

 "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?"

Where is the direct correlation to today? The fact that people associated it with today served her purpose perfectly and proved her right.

Relatively boring character, played by a very limited actress who apparently is about as bright as a box of rocks. 
 

Easy decision.  Smell you later, good riddance. Recast would be easy too.

I’m pretty sure she wasn’t talking about Republicans. They aren’t in control right now.

I’m not saying this excuses Carano’s poor judgment, but nevertheless this is an interesting point.

So who's cool with Pedro being fired? Those of you that are happy that she got fired for stating her political views (albeit rather badly) and making nazi references, should be just as outraged by Pedro and should be fine with his axing.

Maybe, just maybe, we should all be able to state whatever political views we want and not risk losing our jobs. Can we all agree that this should not be a fire-able offense?

You forgot:

Supporting actor compares political climate in nazi Germany to modern day US, fired.

Lead actor calls half the voting population in US actual nazis and keeps his job.

Neither should be fired to be clear. While every employer has their own discretion to hire and fire who they want whenever they want, they have to have some consistency with their decisions.

I think she has said some other stuff as well prior to this.  So she was likley warned and on thin ice already.

Lots of rumors Pascal won't be asked back.  They have not started shooting yet.  The crew currently working Book of Boba Fett (who also does Mando) isn't sure if Mando 3 is next or one of the announced spin-offs (or if some are shooting simultaneously).

Hey Guys. If you want to do politics, please start a new thread in the Political Forum on this. 

Please keep this one free of Politics. 

Or we'll move this thread over there. Which I'm assuming most don't want.

Her other stuff was the twitter weirdo crap they've been harassing her for a year over. They demanded she put pronouns in her bio and BLM in her bio last spring. She refus d and theyve gone after her every day since then. Guess they win.

Yeah, I don’t care the political beliefs of the actors or of their bosses. They can hire or fire whoever the hell they want. If the show is good, I will still watch. 

It's almost like a free market where business can act as they see fit....  That's probably too political

She literally was the worst actor and character on the show. Buh bye. 

I can't speak to the worst actor part,   but she was definitely not the worst character. That honor goes to every character in the Twilek (sp)  prison break episode from season 1. 

 

Excluding Bill Burr's character who ended up being solid in season 2.

The ultimate irony their is that James Gunn liked the posts about Gina getting fired. No self awareness whatsoever.

My wife said the same thing.  She thought that Gina was pregnant because "her body shape is different".
