In the wake of Kanye West’s anti-Semitic comments, which several companies like Adidas have used to justify ending their business relationships with him, it appears that some celebrities have seen this as an opportunity to go to Twitter and re-affirm their stance against anti-Semitism. Actress Susan Sarandon and director Quentin Tarantino, for example, decided to share a warning quote. The only problem is that they are using a holocaust reference that got Gina Carano “canceled” from Disney and The Mandalorian, and her fan base has been quick to call out the hypocrisy.
One person said,
“Didn’t Gina Carano get banned and fired for saying something similar to this? Do I understand that Susan Sarandon is taking a stand alongside Gina…or does she instead mean the opposite and benefits from liberal privilege to say such a thing without consequences?”

Carano’s controversy occurred during the pandemic as people who simply chose not to get the COVID vaccine lost their jobs, were restricted from travel, were shut out of restaurants and other establishments, and were cut off from family and friends. She asks, “How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” But according to some other people, it appears that she was at fault because they believe that this warning is one-dimensional, only to be used to talk about anti-Semitism, and can’t be used as a warning to society under threat of discriminating and dehumanizing any group of people regardless of race or belief system.
Or, as another person put it,
“Gina Carano compared being antivaxx to being a Jew in Nazi Germany Susan Sarandon is comparing antisemitism to…antisemitism.”
Maybe I’m just a fucking moron but…
Gina Carano compared being antivaxx to being a Jew in Nazi Germany
Susan Sarandon is comparing antisemitism to…antisemitism

Gina Carano has since left The Walt Disney Company and has been picked up by The Daily Wire to star in their latest movie. Her Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, is set to launch Season 3 on Disney+ sometime in the near future.
