Gina Carano fired by Disney.

At first I didn't believe it as Mandalorian Season 3 isn't even in production (as they said they wouldn't start until after Boba Fett was finished) and it's not often that a company calls an employee "abhorrent", as even Harvey Weinstein didn't get that treatment.

But every passing minute makes it seem more likely. Cancelled my Disney+ although that was merely symbolic as I'm paid up until next November.

Ghostmaker:
There was a rumor that Jon Favreau had been running interference for her, but evidently he didn't have enough pull to keep the scolds off her.

Amusingly in a dark way, a lot of people conflate McCarthy's arguments with those of the House Un-American Activities Committee. The latter was staffed with Democrats and was a complete shitshow, right up there with the current sham-peachment proceedings. The worst thing about McCarthy was his bombastic nature, but people forget his complaint: that certain people were being given security clearances and employment in the State Department and they should not be there. So, WERE there Communists in the State Department? Well, I admit I could be wrong, but Hiss, the Rosenbergs, Harry Dexter White -- if those people weren't taking Russian rubles I'd like to know why.

He didn't say they couldn't work elsewhere, though (public or private sector). He didn't call for them to be physically assaulted. He even resisted naming people from his list because he admitted he could be wrong and that he didn't want to smear innocents with a faulty accusation.

But welcome to 2021, where someone pointing out the gross dehumanization of a political position is grounds for expelling them from modern society.

No prizes for guessing where this comment was posted.

I hate to say it, but it probably didn't help that she also put on a large amount of weight in between seasons.

And no, that's not because she's a woman. If Chris Pratt showed up for GOTG3 looking like Andy Dwyer again, he'd probably be in violation of his contract too.

I wasn't going to go down that side road, but since you opened the door.
