Free speech is on life support in America.
Censorship is particularly bad in Hollywood.
Now one Disney actress was almost canceled by leftists for an insane reason.
Hollywood celebrities have to walk on eggshells if they want to keep their careers within the system.
Gina Carano, former co-star of Disney’s The Mandalorian, was fired for openly supporting Donald Trump and speaking out against COVID lockdowns.
Now Natasha Ward, who co-stars on ABC’s firefighter drama Station 19, got reprimanded by the left for speaking out against biological males competing against females in sports.
Ward said in a social media post:
“Supporting #transfreedom does not mean it’s ok to violate the rights of biological women. Pretending that trans women are not men who have a biological advantage and therefore place an undue burden on biological women is make believe and it is not science or fact…When ‘your truth’ trumps ‘THE TRUTH’ and forces me to pretend that it’s not a lie we have a very real problem.”
The controversy of trans competitors in sports has been put in the spotlight recently by University of Pennsylvania swimmer Lia Thomas, born William, who “transitioned” to a woman and dominated the competition.
As a member of the men’s swim team, Thomas ranked 462nd; as a member of the women’s team, Thomas ranked 1st and ran away with the NCAA championship.
“In the long run, women will have to take illegal substances in order to beat men ‘identifying’ as women in women’s sports. Ultimately pushing women out of the upper echelons of elite sports entirely as we biologically cannot compete apart from enhanced substances. Forcing women to endanger their health. That is a fact. Your truth is not the truth and when it infringes upon fact and places an undue burden which displaces my rights, we have gone too far.”
It didn’t take long for the far-left activists to come for Ward, including her co-workers.
Station 19 co-stars Jaina Lee Ortiz, Shane Hartline and Barrett Doss, and executive producer Paris Barclay all publicly denounced Ward.
Natasha Ward, an actress on Disney-ABC show Station 19, and a former athlete, has posted "We need to have this conversation" about males in women's sports. It resulted in online abuse and calls for her to be sacked, so other actors and producers on the show have … condemned her pic.twitter.com/WP4sCFK1lC

Soon after, Ward deleted her Instagram post.
It has become verboten to say that a man is a man, and a woman is a woman.
Unhinged leftists are turning America into Clownworld.
In true 1984 fashion, the truth has become illegal.
If Ward steps out of line in any way, she will likely get the Gina Carano treatment.
