Kevin Sorbo Highlights Disney Hypocrisy: Ignored Producer’s ‘MAGA Kids into the Woodchipper’ Post

Actor Kevin Sorbo blasted Hollywood’s treatment of Gina Carano Saturday, highlighting a producer who has worked with Disney and received no rebuke from the company when he fantasized about “MAGA kids” going “into the woodchipper.”

“Just so we’re all clear, he still has his job at Disney,” Sorbo wrote on social media, sharing a screenshot of the infamous post from film producer Jack Morrissey.

Morrissey — whose producer credits include Disney’s live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast — had tweeted, “#MAGAkids go screaming, hats first, into the woodchipper,” alongside a violent image in reaction to the Covington Catholic High School incident in January 2019.

The producer appears to have locked his Twitter account after facing backlash over the now-deleted tweet,  screenshots of which resurfaced amid backlash to Disney and Lucasfilm’s firing of actress Gina Carano.

Carano was recently fired from the cast of the popular Disney+ Star Wars series The Mandalorian after she shared a social media post that compared modern America’s cancel culture to Nazi Germany. A social media mob, misinterpreting her meme as antisemitic, got Carano canceled almost immediately.

Disney subsidiary Lucasfilm said this week in a statement: “Her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Morrissey apologized for his violent fantasy in January 2019, saying his post “was meant to be satirical” but he realized it was “profoundly stupid.”

According to his IMdB profile, Morrissey does not appear to have any projects in development. Thus, Sorbo’s claim about still having “his job at Disney” is not demonstrably clear, but the company never publicly rebuked Morrissey as it did for the misinterpretation of Carano’s social media posts.

Following Carano’s firing, the hashtag #CancelDisneyPlus became a top trend on Twitter, with conservatives accusing the company of double standards.

“Ok, let’s start firing people for making silly comparisons to Nazi Germany,” quipped documentary filmmaker Lauren Southern. “Your turn now progressive media. Chop chop! You’ve got quite the backlog to work on there!”

A slew of individuals on the political left — from Democratic lawmakers, to mainstream media pundits, to Hollywood figures, to members of academia — have been likening their political adversaries to Nazis for years, without anyone in their industries batting an eye.

Others have also pointed out that Disney had fired — and rehired — director James Gunn after it was revealed that he has a years-long history of “joking” about child rape online.

Disney has similarly been silent on new reports of human rights abuses in concentration camps run by China’s communist regime. The BBC recently revealed eyewitness accounts of rape, sexual abuse, and torture at the camps targeting China’s Uyghur Muslims, but Disney — which has weighed in on numerous American political issues — has not said anything about the revelations, as it continues to build business relationships in the nation.

I’m Jewish. I don’t feel “denigrated” by Gina Carano’s recent statement. Shame on Disney/Lucasfilm for firing her!

Gina Carano, actress on the TV series The Mandalorian, recently posted the following on TikTok:

“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors… even by children.”

“Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?”

Her employer, Disney/Lucasfilm, responded with the following:

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

I’m Jewish.

I don’t feel “denigrated” by Carano’s statment.

I actually agree with what she said.

And even if I didn’t agree with what she said, I still support free speech for everyone.

I’ve seen every episode of The Mandalorian.

I think it was wrong for Disney/Lucasfilm to fire Carano.

This wonderful TV series can only be harmed by her firing.

Shame on Disney/Lucasfilm for firing her!
