Today on the Ben Shapiro show, Mr. Shapiro announced that Gina Carano has been hired by his media company, Daily Wire, to write, direct, and star in a new film. Ms. Carano has put out a statement saying that her prayers have been answered. In the announcement, Mr. Shapiro stated that he cannot permit cancel culture to thrive.
“If we want to compete with them, we have to build the X-Wing,” Mr. Shapiro stated in regards to his company seeking to create media and content that will compete with monolithic entertainment companies.
Statement from Gina Carano:
“The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams — to develop and produce my own film — come true. I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob. I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same. They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them.”
Statement form Ben Shapiro:
“We could not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left. This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob. We’re eager to bring Gina’s talent to Americans who love her, and we’re just as eager to show Hollywood that if they want to keep cancelling those who think differently, they’ll just be helping us build the Xwing to take down their Death Star.”
