    Tomorrow, Sunday, February 21, Gina Carano, whose firing from Lucasfilm was made public last week, will sit for the first time to discuss her exit in a one-on-one conversation with The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro. Deadline posted yesterday an exclusive preview to Carano's words on The Ben Shapiro Show. She told him:



    The former MMA fighter added:



    Even though we now know that Lucasfilm decided a few months ago to scrap any plans for a Cara Dune spin-off show, Carano says she learned about her firing through social media, like everyone else:



    [​IMG]



    The actress also reiterated that this happened because Disney treats people differently depending on their employees' political opinions:

    At another point in the interview, she will apparently tell Shapiro:

    The Ben Shapiro Show: Sunday Special with Gina Carano will air tomorrow, Sunday, February 21, on DailyWire.

    Gina: "IM BEING SILENCED." *Goes on a talk show to talk about her silence*. I have to ask: @Lock_S_Foils, @MandoChip Did you two even like the character before all this?

    Okay fair enough. It's just I've never seen you use her avatar before. I just thought it was for political reasons.

    Avatars are political now? No, I have used that before. I screen grabbed that poster the day it came out.

    ...is it possible to lock this thread pre-emptively? Or at least the interview one? Because while this informative, I don't think we want it turning it into a rehash of the previous thread...

    No need to apologize. I wasn’t offended. I am interested in what she has to say about things.

    Loved her to bits, really grounded and believable character with a good backstory, portrayed by an actual badass. You can go and look through my old posts if its that important to you!

    I'm not here for arguments, just posting a friendly comment :)

    Isn't that a bit of a straw man? She didn't say "I"M BEING SILENCED". You're saying that. And you're also saying that she's going on a talk show to talk about her silence. From what was revealed here it only shows that she's been fired and is going onto a talk show to talk about it what happened.

    You've misrepresented her position and then mocked the misrepresented position. That's the very definition of a straw man.

    Maybe it will turn out to be true after the full interview is public, but from what's reported here it's not the case.

    Nothing new here from the actor. Vague innuendo and requests for sympathy/pity.

    Isn't it strange. I think it's intentional to devide people worldwide via web. I say to you here in the Cantina, that I am quite sure, that I don't have the same opinion about all things like you @Lock_S_Foils or like you @Andrew Waples.. But both of you are GREAT Cantineros. So that is everything I have to know about you. I liked the film character dune as role model for girls like my daughter who was always more a Karate kid than a horse or dancing girl. That's the pity.
    Even if I am not sharing the actresses opinions in all points.
    We are all consumed by this strange, "if you are not for me, than it means we are kind of enemies". Bullsh..
    We can be friends despite our different ways of looking through our personal eyes.

    The above comment from @oldbert is exactly why we aren't going to lock it just yet.
    I know it's frustrating have a personal/political/religious view that is in direct contrast with someone else, but the point of the Cantina is for us to share our mutual love for Star Wars. And it quite tricky when an actor, director, or producer believes in the things that contradict one's own beliefs, but if we can put some of those things aside or at least know when the proper time and place to discuss them is, then we have a far better chance of getting along.

    I pity anyone who doesn't have friends with whom they strongly disagree on various topics or such. We grow as humans when we can civilly discuss topics. That doesn't mean anyone can say whatever the heck they want here because this is like someone's house, but the fact one can come here and be willing to discuss what is mutual is a great starting place to grow.

    Don't like Gina or Shapiro? Ok, that's why the article just pulls out a couple relevant topics in regards to Star Wars. No one is forcing you to watch them, and if you think they are actually causing a disruption to society, then you do what you must in your personal life. But the article doesn't get deep into the morals and yes/no's that they believe, so we'll leave it as it is.
    You do love everything Gina and Shapiro believe? Ok, do what you want to support them in your personal life, and enjoy the video.

    I like to think we can someday have a conversation without getting into the controversial weeds someday, and until this threads contradicts my hope, we'll leave it open.

    (and just watch as we lock it tomorrow, haha)

    Where in that preview did she request sympathy or pity? Or do you consider simply talking about it requesting sympathy and pity?
