Bill Burr defends Gina Carano
Bill Burr recently appeared on The Bill Bert Podcast podcast with Bert Kreischer. On the podcast, the subject of Burr’s Mandalorian co-star Gina Carano came up, and he had some interesting things to say. Carano was recently fired by Disney for her “abhorrent” social media posts and has openly expressed her conservative views and was also fired by her acting agency. But, Burr was not a big fan of how Carano was treated. He said:
She was an absolute sweetheart. Super nice f*cking person. And you know, whatever, somehow someone will take this video and f*cking make me say something else and try to get rid of my bald action figure! I’m on that f*cking show. Now, I gotta watch what the f*ck I say.
Burr detests “cancel culture”
Furthermore, Bill Burr, who plays Migs Mayfield the bounty hunter on the Disney+ original, expressed his disdain of cancel culture, saying:
How it is out there, it’s f*cking crazy time. There’s people waiting, just laying in the weeds. Let’s show that he’s human, and he’s made a mistake in his past and take that dream away.
Burr further continued in his rant against cancel culture, adding:
How do you hold up you judging somebody that harshly? I’m not talking about the hard-core sh*t like sexual assault and rape and stuff. I’m not talking about that. Now it’s becoming, like, ‘Hey you made an ignorant comparison. There goes your dream’. I look at that and say ‘Who the f*ck stands up to that?’
This is not the only time Bill Burr has spoken out against woke culture. For instance, in his recent SNL monologue, the actor took jabs at the aforementioned, along with those who don’t wear masks and Gay Pride Month. So, what do you guys think of what Bill Bur has to say? Is social accountability valid or has cancel culture gone too far? Let us know in the comments below.
