The dismissal of Gina Carano of ‘The Mandalorian’ continues to give what to talk about. Has now been Bill burr, the actor who gave life to Mayfeld in the series located in the Star Wars universe, who has positioned himself in this regard by showing his support for Carano during his time on The Bill Bert Podcast.
For now, Burr has already seen that he has to measure his comments, because “I’m on that fucking show, now I have to watch what the hell I say“, to later comment how was your relationship with Carano and his way of seeing what happened:
It was a complete charm. A really nice person. Now someone will probably take this video and somehow make me say something else and try to get rid of my bald action figure. This is how things are now. It’s a fucking crazy time.
Your take on the cancellation culture
This led the actor, whom we have also seen in ‘Noche loca’ or ‘El rey del barrio’, to also make the following reflection on the culture of cancellation:
Now it’s getting like, “Hey, you made an ignorant comparison” (makes the sound of flushing the toilet) There your dream goes. I see that and I think, “Who the hell is against that?”
It is true that Carano’s comments were especially unlucky equating the situation of the Republicans in the United States with that of the Jews in Germany during World War II, but also that he had been making multiple controversial comments for some time and that this was simply the straw that broke the camel’s back, not an isolated incident, since Lucasfilm had been looking for a good excuse not to continue counting on her for some time.
