The ongoing Gina Carano vs. Disney saga continues to garner headlines, as the former MMA star believes she was bullied by the entertainment giant.
Speaking in an interview for Deadline with The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro, Carano made the claims and thought her time on the Star Wars series The Mandalorian which streams on Disney+ was coming to a close, well before the company fired her after she made several controversial social media posts.
“I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” Carano said (h/t MMAFighting). “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply. I could share a story which would turn things around in the media but I can’t because it would sell out a friend. Everyone is afraid of losing their job.”
Carano who compared the struggle of Republicans to that of Jews who were slaughtered during the Holocaust, which ultimately was the last straw for Disney and their relationship with her, has since signed a deal with Shapiro's company to develop her own film for the right-wing conservative website. Disney hasn't responded to the claims and has had no further comments on the Carano firing since the decision initially was announced.
