Less than two days after Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm over “abhorrent” social media posts, Ben Shapiro, the conservative political commentator and co-founder of The Daily Wire, has pledged to make a movie with her.
“Hollywood cancelled Gina Carano for being conservative. That’s bullshit. So we’re fighting back,” Shapiro tweeted on Friday. “Become a DW member today with promo code GINA for 25% off, and join the cultural resistance.”
“I’m a Jew and I [thing goyim like], now give me money.”
Lucasfilm fired Carano, who starred in both seasons of Disney Plus’ “The Mandalorian,” on Wednesday night after she shared several controversial social media posts on her Instagram story. One of the posts compared contemporary political differences to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany, and another post made light of masking-wearing mandates amid the coronavirus pandemic. Carano has also drawn controversy by posting misinformation about election fraud and mocking people who specify their gender pronouns.
Carano was also dropped by UTA as a client within hours after her Lucasfilm firing. Many users on Twitter used the hashtag #FireGinaCarano on Wednesday during the social media backlash.
There are no plans to release Carano and Shapiro’s films anywhere beyond The Daily Wire. Representatives for Carano did not return Variety’s request for comment.
You don’t want to be involved with Ben Shapiro.
He’s a really bad person. Like, really, really bad.
No one who has ever worked with this man has had a good experience, and you just got kicked off of the most popular show on the air for saying things most of America agrees with. You have a lot of options.
Don’t get involved with Ben Shapiro.
You’d be better off calling up Mel Gibson, who is an actually relevant person who isn’t evil.
What kind of movie is Ben Shapiro even going to make? Is he going to have Gina be a mercenary in space in the year 2457, when people have forgotten the Holocaust, and her mission is to make them remember the Holocaust?
What possible artistic anything could come out of the mind of Ben Shapiro?
Gina – look around. You have a lot of things you could do that do not involve the literal scum of the earth Ben Shapiro.
