After being fired Wednesday by Disney’s LucasFilm, conservative Actress Gina Carano is back, partnering with The Daily Wire to produce and star in an upcoming film.
The Daily Wire broke the news in an article on Friday:
“Carano and The Daily Wire announced the new partnership on Friday, two days after the actress was ousted from her role in the Disney Star Wars spinoff show ‘The Mandalorian.’ Disney cut the actress on Wednesday in what critics alleged was a politically-motivated hit.”
The film’s announcement is “sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” Carano said in a statement, adding that she will now use her public platform to speak out about Hollywood’s censorship of conservative actors and messages.
“They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them,” Carano says of the new project that will circumvent the liberal entertainment industry’s efforts to ban conservatism from its medium.
As CNSNews.com reported, Lucasfilm released a statement Wednesday saying it had fired Carano because her social media posts were “denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities.”
But, an article by NewsBusters explains that Carano’s post actually condemns discrimination against people who hold opposing religious and cultural views. What’s more, comparing the Trump administration to that of Hitler’s was commonplace during Trump’s presidency.
The news of Carano’s new film project was met with cheers on social media by high-profile conservatives, with the Young America’s Foundation (YAF) declaring the film partnership “A crash course in how to cancel cancel culture.”
Earlier in the day, Daily Wire co-founder and Editor Emeritus Ben Shapiro teased the upcoming news on Twitter, then followed with posts urging followers to “back badass” Carano and fight back against the liberal Cancel Culture:
“Hollywood cancelled @ginacarano for being conservative. That's bull***t. So we're fighting back. Become a DW member today with promo code GINA for 25% off, and join the cultural resistance.”
The film is being produced “exclusively for Daily Wire members,” the publication says.
