Whats this? A well thought out, even-handed, non-partisan, and reasonable response to a controversy? In 2021? Much respect and YouTube algorithms to you sir.

The picture Pedro Pascal used isn't actually children from the boarder, those were Palistinian children waiting for food from an article in the la times back in 2010.

Disney fires her for her Twitter, yet the mouse filmed Mulan in the providence that has a Chinese concentration camp. THEN THEY THANKED THEM! Like, I lean towards the left politically but what she said was not a fireable offense
Nick Garfinkel
Nick Garfinkel:
Funny that Disney is firing Carano for “antisemitic” comments, when Walt Disney, their founder and namesake, is one of the most outspoken antisemites of the last century.

Allen is definitely of above average intelligence and super self aware ajd down to earth which is in itself a rarity nowadays. My fave youtbe channel by far
Danzarr
Danzarr:
respectfully, the tweet was just the straw that broke the camels back of a long series of tweets that exposed her as morally questionable . If Carano just got quiet after Jan 6 and let the smoke settle, she probably would have been fine,;instead she tried to taunt/intimidate twitter critics with statements that vaguely alluded to disney ip. that shes associated with, attached herself with parler when it was coming out that the alt right, proud/boogalo boys, oath keeper, 3%ers, etc. were congregating there after being kicked off twitter/fb/reddit. And yes, comparing people criticizing your beliefs to nazis and how they treated their victims is very fucking abhorrent and serves to minimize the atrocity and .

Really, like Roseanne, she forgot one of the unspoken rules of Hollywood/entertainment industry: YOU DON'T FUCK WITH THE MOUSE'S IMAGE. She made herself too unpalatable to Disney, now shes signed on to work with Ben Shapiro, so I expect some islamaphobic projects in her future, maybe she can get in on Snyder's atlas shrugged passion project.

Caedus Decivus:
I appreciate your take on this. Much more reasonable than I've seen with some others. I strongly disagree with Carano's political views, but her views are hers. People should NOT keep comparing our current situation to the holocaust, but I also despise this idiotic "Cancel" culture that thousands of self righteous, narrow minded people are getting into.

good citizen:
Taking just what she tweeted, I would say I read it as a lesson (a very important one) we should be taking from history. Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it. It is easy to pull it to pieces every which way, but the spirit is there.

I appreciate your take Allen. If you’re going to do it, do it to everyone. Keep it fair and don’t silence one side. I can really respect people like you who can at least listen to both sides
SirTickleTots
SirTickleTots:
I really don't think what Carano posted was wrong or incorrect. At the expense of yet another comparison of the Jew's plight in europe in the 20th century (Which I agree has been over used at times), she illustrates the strategy of the government and more so the ruling class and it's media to cause division and increase tensions between groups of citizens to eventually enact policy and practice that would appear just and favorable to the majority group, essentially using them as useful idiots to find the means to a nefarious end. If that isn't a pretty close allegory to what's going on nowadays, then I don't know what is.

The unfortunate reason people always bring up the Holocaust and the events that lead to it, is because it one of the best example's of tyrannical government/ruling class manipulation.

Sorry to get political, I'll got back to discussing Legos now.

Pretty contradictory on Disney’s part since they filmed Mulan in a region where there are actual concentration camps and openly thanked the CCP for the privilege.

Good on ya for "lliaming" yourself man. (New hashtag?) I get it. As a child of the 80s i think a whole lot of us said crap we look back darkly on. The vernacular of the time didnt help. Plus i was raised in the deep south by some really racist people. The irony in my case being im mixed race. I didnt see the contradiction till i got some distance and learned more about my parents. But growing up, i said and thought a lot of heinous crap, just cause that was my environment.
It wasnt till the afore mentioned distance , and i actually started hanging out w the people i was supposed to hate that the shift occured for me. Looking back it was inevitable, i just wish it had happened before i hit high school.

@Generation Tech, I've got no issue with anything you said. I feel much the same; if you're going to hold one person "accountable" for their comments, then you have to hold all of your people to the same standard. Selective enforcing of standards, especially when they seem capricious, is never good for morale.
Jack Bennett
Jack Bennett:
Are you going to finish the history of the clone wars series? Now that season 7 is done, I would love to see it.
maxforce
maxforce:
I think Disney aired on the side of caution, They can see where the crazy train is going and think it's only a matter of time before she puts them in a bad position. They didn't fire her, they just said they won't work with her anymore. Now let's talk about this ridiculous conservative expectation that they should not be held accountable by their employers or the general public for their opinions. You have the right to say whatever you want but there are and have always been consequences for doing so. If disney doesn't want to associate with your right leaning rhetoric but associates with left leaning rhetoric that is their right because the last time i checked corporations are people.

JurassicPhilosoraptor:
Yeah me and my best friend bond over just about everything, especially in video games and we most times have the same or similar views. But politically we're DRASTICALLY different (tho I won't say how). But we don't argue. We say our points, and move along. Sometimes changing the others mind. Sometimes not. It's a good balance.

Thank you for helping me clear this up. I've been hearing snippets about this fiasco for the past couple months and didn't quite know what started it all. I wasn't expecting you to take the stance of being "In the middle" like you did, and honestly, it was a breath of fresh air. I wish you all the best Allen.

8:05 Honestly, that seems like a pretty reasonable tweet. It would leave no room for conspiracy theories. I mean, how are people going to deny election results with those standards. Are they going to say the film was doctored too?

Damn son, that was pretty close to perfect. I wish we could all discuss such matters as rationally. As was famously said... Speak softly and carry a big stick. Let people say what they want. But if they try to force you to do what they want with violence... Then ...well you have your stick.

Appreciate your view. Didn't know about some of the other tweets but still the fact she was dropped from Disney and Actor Union to be distasteful. Wish people would stop referencing to the Nazi without understanding the context of how and why they came to power or the period between WW1 and WW2. We may disagree in some ways but I appreciate your honesty and impartiality.

Here's the thing though she was pointing out that it's a pretty slippery slope to get to the level where people are getting beaten in the streets and rounded up, and then they kinda proved her point. Solid video. Like it starts with losing a job, and yeah you hit the nail on the head, why aren't some other people getting cancelled and fired and ostracized for the stuff they said?

Seriously, thank you for saying what you did. We've become so "us vs them" in society. You made many good points about double standards and the lack of allowing people to express their opinions if they not not exactly what you think. It's those differences that keeps society changing (usually for the better)

The Heartless Knight
The Heartless Knight:
Variety magazine's initial headline read, "... Mandalorian star Gina Carano shared controversial posts on Instagram, leading fans to call on Disney Plus to fire her."
First, let's talk about the use of the term "fans". In this case as with many, many, many cases usually involving the word "outrage(d)" fans obviously means Darksiders or outragers, cancel culture, click-bait trolls, whatever you'd like to call them, who are allowed to believe their opinions reflect those of *an entire worldwide fan base which has existed for longer than most of them have been alive* and this "wordage tactic" is often employed by dubious content creators to convince the less discerning fans that "They love Star Wars as much as you do" right before spewing nothing but BB rumors, opinion-based gossip and generally negative personal views. This, of course, is after using words like "exclusive" or "official" in their thumbnail views when they have no ties to Disney or Lucas Film whatsoever. Which brings me to...
Second. Pronouns such as "some" or "certain" or "entitled, milky-snowflake" etc. You get the idea as these types of "fans" don't speak for me and are in no way authorized to or any other fan for that matter except themselves!
Gina's "holocaust" reference was CLEARLY referring to the ridiculous viewpoints currently adopted by certain members of both the democratic and republican parties and the fact that, beyond THAT, we're literally all neighbors and fellow countrymen who have taken dangerous, sometimes deadly actions against one and other based mostly on a dubious individual claiming to be one of them but spewing nothing but rumors, opinion-based gossip and generally negative personal views. See how I came full circle there? In which case, her comparison is horrifyingly accurate. So, speaking only for myself as a Star Wars fan, I've decided to UN-cancel Gina and authorize her to return to work immediately..
Sorry this was so long. May the Force be with you

erik nelson:
I like how you failed to mention that the whole beep boop bop “controversy was tin response to the mob bullying Gina into putting pronouns in her bio. Also you also failed to mention that Disney fired her over social media
