13 celebs who where fired from their jobs

Gina Carano

After two seasons of The Mandalorian, Lucasfilm confirmed in February 2021 that the Texas native will not return. The actress who played Cara Dune was chastised for sharing provocative social media messages, one of which compared modern Republicans to Holocaust survivors.

Dee Nguyen

In June 2020, MTV stated that it would break all relations with the Challenge star. “We have cut connections with Dee Nguyen as a result of her disrespectful statements on the Black Lives Matter movement,” the series said at the time through Twitter. “We'll air our season as scheduled out of respect for our Challengers. We oppose institutional racism and stand in solidarity with anyone speaking out against injustice."

Ngyuen apologized on social media, saying she is "a POC who cares about BLM" and that she will be taking a break from social media to focus on her mental health.

Jenelle and David Eason

Evans' contract with MTV was terminated in May 2019 when her husband admitted to killing their dog after eight years on Teen Mom 2. “MTV ended its connection with David Eason over a year ago in February 2018 and has not recorded any new episodes of Teen Mom 2 with him since,” a spokesman for the network exclusively told Us Weekly at the time. “In addition, as of April 6, 2019, we have halted filming with Jenelle Eason and have no intentions to cover her story in the upcoming season.”

Matt Lauer

After a coworker accused him of sexual misbehavior in the workplace, the Today show cohost was sacked from NBC overnight. On Wednesday, November 29, Savannah Guthrie and Hoda Kotb broke the news live on air.

Bill Hader

"The movie theater was hired out by a sorority organization. They were hostile to me, so I told them about the Titanic's final moments "Hader, of Saturday Night Live, told Us about his brief stint as a movie theater host.

Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones

After the first season of the Fox hit, judges Abdul and Scherzinger, as well as presenter Jones, were unexpectedly fired. The show's producers were "cleaning house," according to Deadline, and "none of the three left on their own accord."

Nick Cannon

Due to anti-Semitic comments he made on his "Cannon's Class" podcast, ViacomCBS announced in July 2020 that they would sever their longtime collaboration with the Masked Singer host. In a long Facebook statement in response to the firing, Cannon chastised the firm and sought ownership of his "billion-dollar" Wild 'n Out brand.

He stated, “I will not be intimidated, silenced, or oppressed indefinitely by any organization, group, or corporation.”I am disappointed that Viacom does not understand or respect the power of the Black community. I was a member of the Viacom ‘family’ for over twenty years. Since I was a minor, we worked together to make great positive entertainment and I was handed many opportunities that I am grateful for.”

Cannon also apologized for the way he “furthered the hate speech.”

Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni

After old statements arose during the Black Lives Matter movement, all four reality stars were dismissed from Vanderpump Rules in June 2020. After former costar Faith Stowers disclosed that Schroeder and Doute falsely reported her to the police in 2018, they came under fire. Both women issued an apology on Instagram. Schroeder went on to say that her "actions were not racially motivated," but she promises to do better in the future.

After tweets containing racial slurs revealed, Boyens and Caprioni, who joined the cast in season 8, were also sacked. During the reconnection, they both expressed regret.
