Disney CEO Doesn’t see the Company as ‘Left Leaning’ After Gina Carano Firing

Disney CEO Bob Chapek said he doesn’t think the company favors either political party when he was asked about firing Gina Carano from “Star Wars” spinoff “The Mandalorian.”  

During Tuesday’s annual shareholder meeting, a stockholder accused Disney of a double standard for firing Carano for a social media post that compared today’s conservatives to the Jewish people who were persecuted by Nazi Germany during WWII. Chapek responded that he doesn’t “really see Disney as characterizing itself as left-leaning or right-leaning.”

When the shareholder pointed out that Carano’s co-star Pedro Pascal had also made a social media post referencing Nazi Germany, he was not fired. In his tweet, Pascal compared Trump supporters to Confederates and Nazis.  

 

Chapek refused to respond directly to the Carano controversy, also side stepping a question about the “Disney black list,” noting that the house of mouse stands for “values that are universal: respect, decency, integrity and inclusion and we seek to have the content that we make reflective of the rich diversity of the world we live in. And I think that’s a world we should all live in harmony and peace.” 

Carano addressed her post on “The Ben Shapiro Show,” saying Disney owned Lucasfilm watched her “like a hawk” during filming. “I had a problem because I wasn’t going along with the narrative,” the conservative actress told Shapiro. “They’re making it very obvious through their employees who were coming for me, and so I was like, ‘I’m going to go down swinging and I’m going to stay true to myself.’”

If the Mouseketeers are inclusive, do they include Confederates and Nazis, or are they excluded?

I dropped Disney when they fired long time employees and made training their “imported” replacement a requirement to receive heir severance package !!! WALT must be turning in his grave at the path his family company took after he died !!! In my opinion they are now GARBAGE !!!

Virginia, Very well said. Walt Disney, a great man that contributed so much to American entertainment would be disgusted, if not horrified at what his founding has evolved into in this day. If, alive, Disney would fire everyone in his organization. I no longer follow any contemporary fake endeavors of this company.

You’ve got to be kidding!! Walt would turn over in his grave if he knew what has happened to the Company he built. It’s been converted into a liberal (left wing) outhouse.

Disney acts like a 2 year old child when caught doing something they say,” I didn’t do it”. Thinking that we believe it. Disney like so many companies are using their billion dollar companies to pressure their employees to vote company line or be fired.How is voting to support country, family values, and religion called Hate.Congress needs laws to outlaw voter suppression in work places.

Disney better watch it because they will become the “HOUSE OF RATS, FOWL, DOGS & PEDO PAN” in the eyes of those that once graced their establishment. They can lose half of their income in a blink.

Another Elite company deciding our life for us. Chinese puppet on payroll just like Biden Panty Sniffer and Toes up Harris. China has bought about any and everything including the whole country. Now wants to come take control of their “Farm Colony”. You ain’t seen nothing yet.

Maybe it’s time for a little reverse cancel culturing! No more Disney. Look at what happened to those swollen headed sports “stars”. I haven’t bought from Amazon for months. Guess what? I don’t miss them one bit. Nuff’said.

He probably doesn’t know the democrats lost in 1865. And in 1945, the Nazis lost to a determined force of armed men and women, in many nations to armed civilians. And in 2020, conservatives lost because they trusted a pack of hyenas aka democrats who committed the greatest crime in world history.

Walt Disney is rolling around in his grave! Disney Productions has turned into a Leftist Socialist organization. Their productions SUCK! Why don’t you Socialists move to Red China? You should feel right at home! I will no longer spend a penny on Disney products!!!

Disney CEO Doesn’t see the Company as ‘Left Leaning’ After Gina Carano Firing. How about caving to the Communist Chinese Party when filming Mulan in the very same area where the CCP has Muslims in Re-Education Camps, learning how to NOT be Muslim, and working 60 to 70 hours a day making Designer Clothes.
