Disney Defends Firing Gina Carano, Insists on Rights to Protect Reputation From Her Damaging Remarks

The Mouse House cite the First Amendment to protect their reputation by ditching Gina from 'The Mandalorian' following her controversial remarks about numerous sensitive issues.

AceShowbiz - Disney is disputing the lawsuit filed by former "The Mandalorian" star Gina Carano, who alleged wrongful termination in 2021. In a motion to dismiss Carano's claims, Disney asserted that the First Amendment protects its right to disassociate itself from her personal views expressed through social media posts.

Carano, who played bounty hunter Cara Dune in the series, was fired after posting controversial and offensive comments regarding trans rights, COVID-19 measures, the 2020 election, and the Holocaust. Disney deemed these posts "abhorrent and unacceptable," particularly her comparison of conservative treatment to the atrocities of Nazi Germany.

Disney argued in its motion that, similar to a newspaper's autonomy in selecting writers, a creative production company has the right to choose performers who align with its artistic vision. The company claimed that Carano's social media presence had begun to detract from its own expressive efforts.

Carano, in her lawsuit, alleged that she was targeted by an "online bully mob" for her non-conformity with "extreme progressive ideology." However, Disney maintains that its decision was based on a careful consideration of Carano's posts and their potential impact on the company's brand and values.

Disney concluded its motion by stating that its "last straw" was Carano's trivialization of the Holocaust, a topic that the company holds with the utmost sensitivity and respect. The company emphasized that it has a duty to protect its reputation and ensure that its content remains free from harmful or divisive messages.
