Gina Carano Is Furious About Disney’s ‘Discrimination’ Against Women In Their Attempt To Dismiss Lawsuit

Disney seeks to have Carano’s lawsuit dismissed. The actress calls the attempt ‘discrimination’ against women and reveals court date.

Disney’s lawyers recently argued that Gina Carano ‘misconstrued’ the reasons behind her firing. Carano reacted to the statement on X:

“Disney you have a problem, you call others what you yourselves are, you do and are the things you tell others not to do or be. You demand apologies and can never figure out how to give one. My case should NOT be dismissed, I deserve the right to present this to my peers and judge in the court of law. Other artists in this industry should take notice.”

She called out Hollywood for ‘double standards’ and went on:

“Most of you already know and I appreciate all the messages of support. I thought you preach about listening to all women, am I getting that right Hollywood?? Every ounce of me is a woman and I’m ready to be listened to. Double standards, hypocrisy, discrimination… Things need to change and they KNOW it and so does everyone else. Court date set June 12th in LA. Pray with me level heads prevail.”

Did Carano Twist The Narrative Around The Disney Case?

Disney asked to dismiss the lawsuit in a memorandum filed on Thursday and claimed Carano ‘misconstrues the allegations in her own complaint’ by implying the studio fabricated ‘the conflict between Carano’s public comments and Disney’s artistic values.’

The legal document read:

“Carano says her statements were inoffensive and did not impair Disney’s art. But for purposes of this lawsuit, that judgment is not hers to make. As the Supreme Court has explicitly held, litigants and courts must defer to an expressive entity’s own view of what associations may impair its speech. Carano’s suit should be dismissed.”

The Company and the Actress’ Clash Over Freedom of Speech

Gina Carano’s legal case alleged that her dismissal over ‘personal political beliefs’ violated her rights. Disney argued it had the right to control its message and let go of anyone who might damage it under the First Amendment.

Carano’s lawyers said earlier this month that she never tried to affect or change the company’s message. They wrote:

“Rather, Carano seeks relief for Defendants’ violation of laws of general applicability that do not, as applied here, inhibit or affect Defendants’ speech.”

Disney replied in the Thursday document by saying the actress ‘seriously misunderstands the scope of the First Amendment and the protections it affords to speech by private persons and entities.’ The studio stands by its decision to fire Carano.
