Season 2 of the present got here below a cloud, nevertheless, when Disney introduced that Gina Carano had been faraway from the function of Cara Dune attributable to earlier statements the actress had made on Twitter that the studio deemed offensive.
Throughout a latest episode of The Invoice Bert Podcast, Invoice Burr, who performs the function of Mayfeld on the present, was crucial of the style by which Carano’s actions had been dealt with by Disney and the web crowd.
“It’s a weird time….Unless she did some truly horrible sh*t or said overtly racist sh*t. I don’t know. I think there is just too many channels. And then you gotta do sensational sh*t…I don’t know what the f*ck it is. I’m on that f*cking show. Now, I gotta watch what the f*ck I say… She was an absolute sweetheart. Super nice f*cking person. And you know whatever and somehow someone will take this video and they’ll make me say something else and try to get rid of my bald action figure…It’s how it is out there. It’s f*cking crazy times. People just waiting, laying in the weeds.”
“Cancel Tradition” has been helped immensely by the proliferation of social media. This isn’t the primary time Disney has responded to objectionable tweets from one in every of their workers with a firing.

Whereas speaking in regards to the problem in a previous interview, Carano had revealed she was unsurprised by her firing, since she had already been made conscious a while again that Disney was trying to eliminate her.
“They accidentally sent me an email, which was very enlightening, so I knew. I knew they were paying attention. I know there were some people who went to bat for me, but I know that they didn’t win out at the end… They’ve been all over me and they’ve been watching me like a hawk, and I’m watching people on the same production and they can say everything they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I wasn’t going along with the narrative.”- Advertisement-
