Pro tip for all of you would-be verbal assaulters out there: it’s probably not a good idea to attack Gina Carano. In our latest dose of people being unnecessarily mean towards the Cara Dune actress, the former Senator US Senator from North Dakota, Heidi Heitkamp, decided to call Mrs. Carano some extremely vile names. This occurred on the Bill Maher show, but is only now picking up steam.
Noticed by Yeticast and then covered by Jeremy at Geeks and Gamers, the attention drawn to the vicious statements finally received an official response from Gina Carano herself.
Why have I not seen anyone talking about this? A former US Senator called @ginacarano some of the most heinous things while on Real Time with Bill Maher. How is this not slander? pic.twitter.com/34iFt1STCR

Gina had the following to say:
“Here we have more of the dehumanizing phase of cancel culture. -Repeat lies over and over until the population takes them as “truth”. False, disturbing & disgusting language coming from a former US Senator.
You knew as soon as you said it you were liable.”

From our viewpoint, you’d think people would realize it’s a losing position to attack Gina Carano. She was fired from her role for telling people to not demonize their neighbors. That’s a very popular position in the United States, as per polling we’ve shown on this site previously. I can’t imagine that Disney is thrilled to have Carano continue to be in the news either, given the bumbling, fumbling response CEO Bob Chapek had to the controversy in the investors’ call.
