AceShowbiz - Caitlyn Jenner is seeking legal support from Elon Musk for her own Disney lawsuit. The former Olympic gold medal-winning decathlete reached out to the Tesla co-founder and CEO after being cut out from "The Kardashians".
The 74-year-old sent out her request by replying to the billionaire's tweet where he offered legal support to anyone who has been "discriminated against by Disney or its subsidiaries (ABC, ESPN, Marvel, etc)." In her post, she wrote, "Hulu (Disney subsidiary) never put me on my family's show - I had been on since day 1- when it switched from E."
Caitlyn, who shares daughters Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner with ex Kris Jenner, was a main member of the cast of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians". She appeared in its first 13 seasons and then played a smaller role through its conclusion in 2021.
In her legal docs, Gina claimed she was fired from "The Mandalorian" for voicing right-wing opinions on social media. The former mixed martial artist demanded a court order that would force Lucasfilm to recast her.
"A short time ago in a galaxy not so far away, Defendants made it clear that only one orthodoxy in thought, speech, or action was acceptable in their empire, and that those who dared to question or failed to fully comply would not be tolerated," read the lawsuit. "And so it was with Carano."
Of her legal action, Gina explained on X, formerly Twitter, "After my 20 years of building a career from scratch, and during the regime of former Disney CEO Bob Chapek, Lucasfilm made this statement on Twitter, terminating me from The Mandalorian." She added, " 'Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm & there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural & religious identities are abhorrent & unacceptable.' "
"Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is I was being hunted down from everything I posted to every post I liked because I was not in line with the acceptable narrative of the time," she added. "My words were consistently twisted to demonize & dehumanize me as an alt right wing extremist. It was a bullying smear campaign aimed at silencing, destroying & making an example out of me."
