Disney’s duplicity? Gina Carano questions Susan Sarandon getting a pass for similar post on Nazis

If there’s one thing you can count on when looking toward Hollywood, it’s the industry’s commitment to hypocrisy.

Whether its actors screaming about the need to stomp on the Second Amendment before heading to the set to film a shootout (or in the case of Alec Baldwin, to literally shoot someone) or championing the cancellation of celebrities who don’t toe the liberal line after barely surviving McCarthyism in the 1950s, Tinsel Town has a long history of blatant hypocrisy, and in today’s polarized society, they are increasingly less concerned about hiding it.

Hollywood protects its own… until it decides to eat them alive for all the world to see.

Take, for example, a recent post by actor/activist Susan Sarandon, long known for her support of socialists like Bernie Sanders.

The Monarch star shared a meme on Twitter that read: “It didn’t start with gas chambers. It started with one party controlling the media. One party controlling the message. One party deciding what is truth. One party censoring speech and silencing opposition. One party dividing citizens into ‘us’ and ‘them’ and calling on their supporters to harass ‘them.’ It started when good people turned a blind eye and let it happen.”

Users on Twitter were quick to recall a similar post on Instagram from actress Gina Carano that read: “Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, 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?” she asked.

For her comment, the conservative Carano was promptly fired from her recurring starring role on Disney’s The Mandalorian.

Considering that Sarandon’s show airs on Fox and Hulu — both of which fall under Disney’s enormous corporate umbrella — folks on Twitter are waiting to see Sarandon’s pink slip.

Technically, Carano didn’t speak out against Disney for the crickets surrounding Sarandon’s post.

She didn’t have to. Sometimes a really good meme can speak volumes.


But that didn’t stop Twitter from speculating.

“If you’re wondering why @SusanSarandon can say basically the same thing as #GinaCarano and not get fired from her job as an actor, just follow the money,” wrote one user who attached a list of donations Sarandon has made to Democratic PACs and candidates.


Others are demanding that Disney answer for their duplicity.

“Will you be removing any Susan Sarandon roles or content from your platforms?” one user asked the media giant. “If not, why not?”


But it was conservative hero Scott Presler who made the ultimate comparison to Sarandon’s tweet.

“So basically,” he stated, “this:”
