Disney had an apology they wanted Gina Carano to give

One of the Twitter incidents for which Carano came under fire in 2020 involved gender pronounces. When she questioned gender pronouns in social medai profiles, people explained what they meant. Carano put “beep/bop/boop” in hers. When many considered that to be mocking she/her, he/him and they/them pronouns, Carano says Disney provided her a formal apology.

“We went through this really long thing where it was like back and forth, back and forth,” Carano told Shapiro. “They wanted me to say this. I thought it was ingenuine.”

Gina Carano was a cast member of the Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian. Disney and Lucasfilm announced earlier this year that Carano was no longer employed by them. Carano has her next job lined up, a film with Ben Shaprio’s Daily Wire film productions. Shapiro also gave her an hour-long interview to share her side of the story. In part of the hour, Carano discusses Disney’s reaction to her tweets about trans pronouns.

Beep/bop/boop has zero to do with mocking trans people & to do with exposing the bullying mentality of the mob that has taken over the voices of many genuine causes.

Carano says she countered with her own apology, but it did not meet Disney’s approval.

“I wrote out this massive thing that… if I put out this statement now it would actually be very enlgithened of how I was feeling a year ago,” Carano said. “But, they didn’t want that. I think they thought I was already taking too much attention off of The Mandalorian which was not my intention because Ik now how hard everyone works on it. We got down to this statement within two words, almost two words. They just said it was not apologetic enough. It was shocking. I want to communicate.”

Gina Carano’s publicists stepped in with ‘Mandalorian’ producers Disney and Lucasfilm too

As soon as the beep/bop/boop incident occurred, Carano said her personal publicity team called her into a Zoom meeting. Carano said she spoke with LGBTQ representatives from the PR agency.
