Was Kathleen Kennedy a scapegoat?
So, after driving Disney to bankrupty, destroying Star Wars and finally Indiana Jones, Kathleen Kennedy was finally fired.

I'm not saying I'm not happy to see her go, but I'm starting to feel like she was just a scapegoat. She started off simply serving coffee to Hollywood big shots, then suddenly rose to become the figurehead of Disney's cultural destruction. And she stayed at that position, despite failure after failure, only to be fired PRECISELY after the last franchise left had been destroyed.

Mick Gordon was offered a six-digit sum to take the blame for Doom Eternal's soundtrack fiasco. Now imagine how cheaply you could hire a coffee girl to take the blame on behalf of the Disney corporation.
Couple of things here. First, is there actual confirmation that she has been fired? From what I’ve been able to dig up it looks like it’s just rumors so far. Second, it looks like she has been involved with Amblin Entertainment (Spielberg) and Lucasfilm as a producer since the 1980s. According to Wikipedia the first thing she worked on as producer was ET in 1982, and she was also involved in producing the Jurassic Park movies in the 90s. She was made president of Lucasfilm in 2012, and from there she was the driving force behind all the woke nonsense. She’s had a pretty long career and has been involved with the franchises she was put in charge of for some time. I don’t like her either, but it’s a huge exaggeration to say she was just some coffee girl who suddenly got promoted out of nowhere.
