    Well she isn't blowing the whistle in order to help any other poor bullied souls at Disney.

    Did my comment get deleted because I called Ben Shapiro a mega d-bag? It's not even the full word!

    I'm sick of this whole controversy but I want it to be known that while I disagree with Gina about some of her believes and political views, I'm still a fan of hers as an actress, love the Cara Dune character and she's hot.

    I don't agree with Disney in firing her but I'm not all that mad at them either. Tired of this whole mess and am just focusing on the show returning for season 3!

    THIS. Free to basically do and say as they please, shame Gina wasn't afforded same length of leash, er.... freedom, but whatever.

    Also:

    Laser glowsticks & massive stones MAY ruin my bones but the scREEEches of the cancel-culture loving, social justice "warriors" will never concern me.

    For what it's worth, they fired James Gunn for a offensive joke. Not sure how long it was before they hired him back has he since apologized for.

    Obviously, pedo/ rape jokes are not nearly as offensive to Disney as pointing out that America's cancel culture looks a lot like modern day Nazi behavior: Ich muss meinen feind zum schweigen bringen, um jeden preis! It's ironic. Disney is more Nazi-esque than Carano.

    And my only response to that is: Oye vey!

    Oh, there were plenty of ticked off people.... hence Gunn's firing. Soon as the next Politically Correct/Orange Man Bad Crisis was manufactured, Gunn's pedophile love and pro rape BS were both memory holed and the Mousehouse brought him back. All for the dollars, Embo.... No more. No less.

    You mean stuff that happened 10-15 years ago? Stuff that he had already apologized for before working for Disney?
    That stuff?

    Yeah. That's totally the same as continually going against your employers repeated attempts to ask you to tone it down.

    Gunn apologized and stopped doing it. Got his job back.
    Carano didn't. Lost her job, probably not getting it back.

    Not difficult to figure out.

    Yes it was. It's our rule on criticizing vs bashing. Usually you should get a notification in your alerts with a reason for why.

    I mean, you never heard of forgiveness? One mistake and no second chances? I'd welcome Gina back with open arms if she just apologized for it.

    We’ve tried the.. let’s give them an area in the playground where we can keep an eye on them before. it didn’t work, and whilst your optimism makes me smile.. it won’t work here either.

    I can’t give my opinion on this (Gina) subject here. I can’t talk about it because to be truthful I would need to use words & a tone that would get me in trouble and probably damage friendships or worse.. damage the Cantina.

    ^^^
    anyone who read that paragraph.. I ask myself these questions BEFORE I post on this forum.

    we have 10k members here from all corners of the globe. we are a mix of ridiculously different cultures living in vastly different societies.
    the magic of Star Wars has brought us together, but we all have very different lives and beliefs.
    we have to steer clear of heavy politics/religion/etc. take it from a wise old owl who has been on forums since the first were even conceived.. it will all go to sh!t if the mods let everyone loose on these topics.

    the mods aren’t ‘cancelling’ anybody if they remove or edit a post over subjects like this. They are the wheels that keep this truck moving in a straight line across a very narrow bridge, and they are using a set of rules that every single one of you all agreed to when you registered.

    the mods deserve more respect than they have seen the last few days. we have no Cantina without them.

    :)

    For those that don't know German, what I posted above means: "I must silence mine enemy. At all cost!"

    I didn't set the standards for cancel culture, a bunch of Soy-boys, Twitter-Karens & Emo teens did. I've read every one of those Gunn Tweets; found nothing humorous about them and I never once said he should be fired. But, I was not surprised by his termination. I also don't give a wamprats arse when the tweets happened because I remember what politicians & those in the media did to Justice Kavanaugh with a fake news story, 30 years in the making. The woman gave 5 different accounts of the number of the people at the party; couldn't remember leaks to reporters; lied about being afraid to fly and didn't know who paid for the polygraph or her lawyer. Just to name a few. I also remember that social media absolutely crucified the man before an actual fact was known... so please spare me the it was a long time ago, in twitter posts far, far away.... story angle.

    I laugh heartily whenever my boss tells me to tone it down and remind him that he is free to fire me at any time.... then I keep going and we both laugh. Why. Because he understands my value and actually appreciates my brutal honesty. Gina has a right to speak her mind exactly as she sees fit and no one; least of which Disney, can tell her otherwise.

    If they did and she ignored them, more power to her.

    They can fire her all they want.

    That's their prerogative.

    All is fair in love and political firings, so Disney also gets to deal with any negative fallout from their decision.

    Rainbows & lollipops, life is not.... unless yer name is James Gunn.

    There is nothing to forgive! I'd lose respect for her if she apologized for sharing an honest opinion. I speak some Hebrew, have many Jewish friends.... my wife is half Polish-Jew and we've been chuckling at the absurdity since the story broke.

    I'm ready and willing to talk to anyone about how Disney blew this out of proportion and their double standards are the reason to blame.

    America used to care about free speech; now all she cares about are Twitter based fee-fees and muh internet likes. Sad.

    I respect your restraint.

    I would just like to say that I too fear for the future safety of the Cantina if I was to cut loose and express how strongly I feel about Cara Dune not being required for the rest of Mandalorian. Don't thank me all at once for keeping my feelings to myself. :rolleyes:

    it’s not restraint. It’s simple good manners

    If I go to my mate’s house and he asks me to take off my shoes before going in.. I either take my shoes off or I don’t go in. What I don’t do is ignore him. keep my shoes on, enter his house and then spend all evening there b!tching about what he asked me to do.

    If I walk into a library and I see a sign above the door asking me to be silent inside.. guess what? I’ll be quiet or I won’t go in.
    I won’t go in, stand on a desk and shout about my dislike of the silent rule.

    I treat the cantina like my mate’s house.

    I'm just sad that the next SW live action we will get to distract us from all this isn't until almost next winter.
