(ConservativePeak.com)- Conservative radio show host Ben Shapiro is reportedly working with Gina Carano, the MMA fighter and actress who was recently axed from the Star Wars series “The Mandalorian.”
Following Disney’s decision to stop working with Carano, owing to her conservative views, the actress is expected to begin a new collaboration with Shapiro’s media outlet, The Daily Wire.
Speaking to Deadline, Carano said that the Wire is “helping make one of my dreams – to develop and produce my own film – come true.”
“I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone live in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” she added. “I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same…They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Carano would not return to the Star Wars series after she shared a post on social media comparing being a Republican to being a Jew in the Holocaust. Carano made the point that Nazis dehumanized Jews to the point that people felt comfortable with the atrocities directed towards Jews in Europe at the time, and that today, left-wing activists are dehumanizing conservatives in the same way.
Lucasfilm took issue with the statement and chose to dehumanize Carano by firing her for political speech.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be n the future,” a spokesman from Lucasfilm said. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
The spokesperson did not, however, explain how Carano denigrated anybody based on cultural or religious identities.
Carano was also dropped by her agency, UTA, according to a spokesperson, after #FireGinaCarano trended on Twitter earlier this week.
Ben Shapiro announced the news, telling Daily Wire readers that he could “Not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left.”
“That is what Daily Wire exits to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob,” he added.
Shapiro said he is eager to bring Carano’s talent to Americans who love her, and “just as eager to show Hollywood that if they want to keep cancelling those who think differently, they’ll just be helping us build the X-wing to take down their Death Star.”
Is this the beginning of a new, conservative-friendly movie industry?
