Disney CEO Addresses Gina Carano's Firing from 'The Mandalorian'

The Walt Disney CEO is weighing in on Gina Carano‘s firing.

During a shareholders’ meeting on Tuesday (March 9), CEO Bob Chapek addressed the 38-year-old actress being fired from the Disney+ series The Mandalorian over her highly controversial social media post.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bob was asked by a caller during the Q&A portion of the meeting if Disney had a “black list” while insinuating that Gina was fired for her conservative politics.

Bob responded by saying that he does not see as “left-leaning or right-leaning” and that Disney stands “for values that are universal: Values of respect, values of decency, values of integrity and values of inclusion. And we seek to have the content that we make reflective of the rich diversity of the world we live in. And I think that’s a world we should all live in harmony and peace.”

Gina was first fired in February after she compared being a conservative in modern America to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.

Shortly after her firing, Gina sat down for an interview about the situation where she accused Disney & Lucasfilm of bullying.
