Doesn’t seem likely.

Do you have a source for these claims?
Pretty sure random people can’t send you DMs on Twitter.

Gina Carano's family have casino money. Her keeping the Disney gig or not will have no real effect on her monetarily. Companies can make you tow the line when you need them, she doesn't.

She's likely been told numerous times, she'll be gone and lose her spin off if she keeps posting comparing herself to holocaust victims and previous posts about Jewish people controlling the world (a few months back I'm pretty sure she posted a Qanon themed meme that depicted Jewish people in this light but can't find it now). Apparently it was Jon Favreau constantly going to bat for her job was why she kept the gig this long. She kept posting because who knows, may be she believes it, maybe she doesn't, maybe she wants to get in on the politics grift instead of acting, who knows.

Conservative, wealthy family, a following, is a 'victim' in her eyes and good looking woman = countless landing zones for her. She's not going to disappear, she'll be on every grifters podcast and show over the next few months and then who knows what she does from there.

Edit: not sure if her post came from Qanon. It was a mural (which was criticised for it's anti-semitism) that was updated to show George Soros etc. Someone grabbed a screen shot of the post here.

There are likely very good people to stand behind that have been 'cancelled' by an online mob for very little. Gina Carano is not that person.

I think she probably does believe it. As mad as it sounds. Sure, Jon Voight put out a video after the election results saying the election was stolen. Then there are all the famous celebs who are anti-vaxers. It's mad shít altogether but somehow people get caught up in it. No idea how some of this stuff catches on.

I don't get it myself and most people I know don't get it, it's the loons online who just watch all the back and forth and then pick a side and pile in. You have conservatives losing their mind about the terror of socialism ripping the great USA apart. The man heading this socialist movement? Joe Biden! The most centrist (probably seen as more centre right in Europe), lets not rock the boat politician around!

Famous people are still people and people are idiots.

Loads of celebrities were being bombarded in a trend (probably still are) to add their pronouns on their twitter bio. If you or your show or anything to do with you was in any way trending on twitter you can guarantee there are replies underneath saying add your pronouns. Her co star Pedro Pascal was being tweeted all the time to do it and he eventually updated his, she was constantly messaged about it but didn't want to. She wasn't targeted, Mandalorian was just trending regularly at the time so Pedro Pascal and her were obvious people to bombard about it. Same thing was going on with musicians, film stars, politicians.

The messages werent DM’s, just standard tweets calling her transphobic, a bitch, fat, to kill herself etc etc. When she added beep/bop/boop to her bio that obviously did her no favours and just escalated the whole thing, add in the other tweets she had about covid, anti maskers and political views and she was just pouring petrol on a fire.

As Alf Veedersane said, celebs are still people and people are idiots. Celebrities have a platform and a wider audience and should be more aware what they post is under constant scrutiny. Post stuff thats gonna offend people and make your employer look bad if they ignore it and its gonna bite you in the ass.

As I said in another thread............

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.

Well he's out of the whiskey business (with likely a nice chunk of money). Maybe he'll be a little more active or more likely he'll buy another boat

https://www.bloodyelbow.com/2021/3/3...o-mma-ufc-news

Hold on, he bought the Black Forge last year and put a million into doing it up? I missed that, maybe he'll spend his days pulling pints and switching between RUK and Sky Sports Racing for the regs.

Seems an odd decision to buy him out seeing as he is essentially the brand. They would have to keep him on in some way at least.

Is there any talk on how much they bought him out for?

They sold 215m cases last year. Which is probably €50m turnover, a 4x valuation would be €200m. The Mexicans paid €58m for 29% last time. Which matches that valuation.

Which means at a minimum, this was €102m. But likely a bit more a bit more. Definitely a 9 figure buyout.
