According to the Walt Disney Company, making Holocaust analogies on social media is a fireable offense, but profiting off an ongoing modern-day genocide is A-OK. Disney-owned Lucasfilm fired “The Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano this week for posting a Nazi comparison on her Instagram.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors … even by children,” Carano wrote. “Most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.”
Lucasfilm told Variety Magazine that “her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.” Yet the actual ongoing rounding up of people based on cultural and religious identities, not just words about it, has yet to be denounced by Lucasfilm’s parent organization.
The Disney company has remained silent when called out for filming its live-action “Mulan” movie in the same region that the Chinese Communist government is holding at least 1 million Uighurs, members of ethnic minorities, in concentration camps, according to the U.S. State Department. Disney even went as far as thanking the CCP and their propaganda departments in the credits of the film.
