Kathleen Kennedy Gets The Hitler Meme Video Treatment After Gina Carano Firing
Star Wars boss Kathleen Kennedy got the Hitler meme video treatment after she unceremoniously fired The Mandalorian star Gina Carano.
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy has become the butt of internet jokes after her unceremonious firing of Gina Carano through a press statement, where Disney lied about Carano’s social media posts.
The press statement claimed, “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future.”
It added, “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Carano never made any “posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities.” The claim is an outright lie from Disney.
Instead, Carano shared a post warning about how the dangers of hating your neighbor can lead to extreme violence.
Not only that, but she stood up to bullies who were demanding that she put pronouns in her Twitter bio.

Given Carano’s firing was done unjustly, fans have been lampooning Star Wars, Lucasfilm, Disney, and Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy.
The latest example comes from YouTuber Acts17Apologetics, who ridiculed, Kennedy, Lucasfilm, and Disney using the now famous Hitler scene from the 2004 film Downfall.
Take a look.
The video begins by detailing what’s happening at Disney’s secret headquarters. It then quickly transitions to the Hitler scene from Downfall, where it reveals Disney’s Star Wars plans for Disney+ including The Mandalorian Season 3, The Book of Boba Fett, Ahsoka, and Rangers of the New Republic.
Things seem to be going well. However, they take a turn when Hitler’s advisors reveal that Gina Carano is now the number one celebrity in the world based on IMDB ratings.
Kennedy as Hitler then has a monumental temper tantrum. The subtitles read, “I told her to shut up! She was supposed to look pretty and shut up! We don’t pay these actresses to share their thoughts with the world. We pay them to read their lines.”
It continues, “Everyone’s talking about Gina! They should be talking about how I’m empowering women! They should be talking about my video for the Oscars. It’s been getting thousands of views!”
One of his advisors then states, “Mrs. Kennedy, people are only watching it to make fun of you.”
Kennedy as Hitler retorts, “Any publicity is good publicity!”
The advisor responds, “Mrs. Kennedy, we had to delete the comments.”
Kennedy as Hitler then states, “I told you not to let people make comments about me. Write that down! These Star Wars fans should learn to keep their mouths shut…just like the stupid actresses that need to be slapped into silence.”
“We make these shows for them and all they do is complain. When a dog begs for scraps under the table…and I toss it a bone…I don’t ask the dog if he likes it,” he rants.
He then angrily shouts, “We should put these morons in re-education camps like China!”
Later in the video, Kennedy as Hitler says, “But Gina… had the nerve to tell people not to hate each other over politics. She said that Nazis taught people to hate their neighbors. But she shouldn’t talk about Nazis. We’re the only ones who get to call people Nazis. She’s copying our playbook!”
What did you make of the video?
