Gina Carano Actually Took the 'South Park' Special Seriously, Took a Chance to Attack Kennedy

South Park is an adult animated series known for its blunt satire, which, despite the bluntness, often comes off as brilliant and absolutely beautiful. The series has been on for almost three decades, and in that period, there was practically no relevant social or political phenomenon that the series hadn’t parodied.

In its recent special episode, which was titled South Park: Joining the Panderverse, South Park attacks Disney’s diversity policies amidst big divisions in the Star Wars community; at the same time, it mocks all those who target only Kennedy while ignoring the rest of the people involved, which implies that Kennedy is targeted solely because she is a woman.

And while South Park‘s beautiful satire was the topic of another article we wrote recently, we also have to acknowledge the fact that some fans actually took this whole episode seriously, rather than as the parody that it is, which is an issue in itself. Among them was Gina Carano, and this is what happened.

We all know about the affair between Gina Carano and Disney. The actress was fired (or, to be precise, her contract was not renewed) due to her political and ideological views, which were not in accordance with Disney’s policies. Her character has been written out of The Mandalorian, in which she starred, and the series moved on.

Carano has since taken up legal action against Disney in hopes of being rehired or reimbursed, but she has also been attacking her former employer whenever the opportunity presents itself. She specifically targeted Kathleen Kennedy more than once, and after the release of the above-mentioned South Park special, she decided to take it seriously and attack Kennedy once again:

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 Hollywood Reporter run hit pieces about the South Park creators and their families smearing their names through every useful idiot she has under her thumb who would sell their soul to work for Lucas film, …

… she’ll activate her online mob to repeat that the South Park creators are racist, bigot, transphobes, and demand the South Park creators publicly apologize by only using words she approves of and finally she’ll demand they subject themselves to a re-education course of 45 people in the lbgtq community zoom call to sit there and listen of how badly they got their feelings hurt all over a little boop of a South Park episode. But maybe just maybe the jig is up.

And while the rant is just another one in a series of similar ones, so we won’t actually deal with it in detail (it looks like Carano is quite frustrated, so we’ll leave her be), we have to say that it is quite sad to see Carano take South Park so seriously, when it is a show that obviously mocks everyone and everything without actually wanting to be taken seriously. At least not in the literal sense. The show sends a strong message, but Carano’s frustrated comment, sadly, shows that she completely missed it.
