Former Disney actress Gina Carano, who was removed from her role by Disney in February 2021, has responded to a recent episode of “South Park” that satirized the president of Lucasfilm, Kathleen Kennedy. In her social media post, Carano praised the “Joining the Panderverse” episode created by “South Park” creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker.
The episode takes a humorous approach to criticize Kennedy for her approach to successful films and representation in media. It suggests that Kennedy recycles popular movie formulas by incorporating minority women and woke characters. The satirical clip features Disney executives discussing their continued efforts to make the same type of movie while attempting to appeal to a broad audience, even as their box office results decline.
In the episode, a fictional version of Kennedy introduces an ancient Disney artifact called the “panderstone,” intended to help make movies that appeal to everyone by constantly recycling the same formula. The episode humorously portrays Kennedy overusing the “panderstone,” resulting in a tear in the multiverse.
One specific part of the episode highlighted by Carano is where the fictional Kennedy demands that YouTubers be censored. This aspect of the episode appears to be a reference to real-world debates about censorship and freedom of speech.
Carano’s endorsement of the “South Park” episode aligns with her stance on free expression and her personal experience of facing consequences for her social media posts. Her support for the episode underscores her views on the importance of open dialogue and free speech.
This incident reflects the ongoing conversation about the intersection of politics, entertainment, and social commentary, as public figures like Carano continue to share their perspectives on these issues.
This is the part where KK demands any YouTubers get censored off of YouTube for sharing and laughing at this hilarious episode, she’ll have YouTube disable the thumbs down option because of the ratio she’ll receive, then she’ll have her publicist ghouls make sure Variety and… https://t.co/CMgASHQBgz
