    She compared people being hated for their political view in the Us is like the persecutions of the Jews in Nazi Germany.
    Note: I am paraphrasing here

    I can't believe you paraphrased that...you monster! (Can't be too careful :rolleyes: )

    US politics has a real toxic edge to it right now and Carano diving in with as stupid and tone deaf a statement as that is not going to win you any fans (well, any new fans that anyone would want anyway).

    Was she in that Haywire movie with the geographically accurate rooftop chase in Dublin city centre? That movie was quite fun.

    It could backfire on Disney. The right might stay away.

    Would "the right" have followed "Star Wars"? They were already outraged when Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were cast so that ship already long sailed.


    No that Disney would care about loosing the likes of that anyway.

    She's scarcely a martyr. She posted CoVid and US election conspiracies on Twitter in yet another failure for people to realise that social media is you, for the world to see. Talk about failing to read the room, the US is kinda twitchy about pro-insurrectionist BS ATM.


    She spoke her mind and from what I've been told by friends in America, what she said is actually a fairly accurate description of the current climate over there.

    Antonio Banderas what happened to him.

    In fairness to lucasfilm and Disney, it is far more than one post.
    She has a history of being quite pointedly provocative.
    Comparing "cancel" culture to the Holocaust was obviously the last straw for a company that caters in the main to a pg13 market.

    Most rational people wouldn't see much wrong with what she said.

    Ok.

    I don't want to derail this thread by getting into this too far, but this is just unbelievable nonsense. You've had the Trump-led right screaming down 'snowflakes' for half a decade, things boiled over and there was what many consider an attempted coup, and you have people like Gina Cararo who conisistently egged everything on now trying to play the victim because all of a sudden she thinks SHE'S the one being persecuted for her sh*tty beliefs. Spare me.

    Most intelligent people know that this particular subject matter is to be avoided, particularly in an industry with a strong connection to the Jewish community.

    On a personal level, I think you need to brush up on your history, nobody is rounding up Republicans for internment.

    Yes - i really don't understand why actors don't just stay off all social media. Just keep your mouth shut and get rich.

    She compared criticism of her conservative/right-wing political ideas to the persecution and systematic genocide of the Jewish population in Nazi Germany. She was insinuating that those steps taken to criticise her and others like her are akin to the first steps in the process that brain-washed a massive chunk of an entire generation of Germans that led to such atrocities.

    This is after spending the past few months spreading, propagating and promoting right-wing conspiracy theories, including the QAnon theory that is literally rooted in anti-Semitism and is almost a mirror image of the kinds of lies and propaganda that was fed to people back then to lead to the darkest page in recent human history.

    It's not a crime to have different political ideas, but if it was illegal to not understand irony then she would have been launched into space immediately.

    Wasn't he just in the last Guy Richie film, The Gentlemen? I'd say he's keeping busy.

    Yeah, I know; you probably missed the in-joke where he kept coming up :D Unless you're being further meta in which I tip my hat to you :)

    Mary Stuart Masterson. She was popular around the time of Fried green tomatoes at the whistlestop Cafe but seemed to disappear not too long after.

    Not quite a Hollywood actor, but was thinking of Ardal O'Hanlon recently for similar reasons. Post Father Ted, he had a brief career but seems to have just completely disappeared from screen.

    He played Detective Mooney for two series of Death In Paradise in just the last couple of years. He was also in the terrible comedy where he was a super hero.

    According to Wikipedia she fractured a vertebra in her back which I’m sure is very painful and not something you get over quickly.

    Dan Schneider, seems like the last place he should had been involved in was a kids network

    "Exit from Nickelodeon (2018–present)
    On March 26, 2018, Nickelodeon announced that it would not be extending its production deal with Schneider and Schneider's Bakery.[13] In addition, the network also announced that Schneider's comedy Game Shakers would not be renewed for a fourth season. Schneider's remaining Nickelodeon comedy Henry Danger would be receiving a fifth season.[4] Deadline Hollywood, the first to report about Nickelodeon parting ways with Schneider, also reported that there were complaints about Schneider's alleged behavior, including his alleged "well-documented temper issues for years" and his tweets showing photos of his young actresses' feet. Nickelodeon did not respond to Deadline's report and Schneider's representative refused to comment on the report.[14]"

    A belief in gender identity involves a level of faith as there is nothing tangible to prove its existence which, as something divorced from the physical body, is similar to the idea of a soul. - Colette Colfer

    I actually think she's trying to get more work. Sure with the kind of stuff she's saying she won't get hired by Netflix or Disney anytime soon but you have to remember that there's a lot of people who would buy into what she's saying no matter how nuts.

    1: Say crazy stuff on Social Media
    2: Get a rabid following
    3: ???
    4: Profit


    She didn't kill her career, by her standing up to the Haters and Bigots, got her fired.

    What did she post, that makes her look stupid.


    It is brave to stand against the haters.
    The cowards knee.

    You have it mixed up.

    She spent months spreading an anti-semetic conspiracy theory, at times even posting outwardly anti-semetic memes, and then topped it off by comparing being criticised for stuff like this to being a Jew in Nazi Germany.

    Pretty dumb.

    I'm sure you can prove that by posting any of those.

    No she didn't


    Her co star pedro pascal, posted Nazi stuff on his account.
    But that was ok, since he was comparing Trump and his supporters to Nazis.


    If it wasn't for double standards, you wouldn't have any.

    Then I guess this is a giant misunderstanding and everything will be ok then.

    Thanks for your intrepid work!
