The reason Crunchyroll fired her was because Anna participated in a Chainsaw Man anime fandub. Fandub is when fans dub an anime themselves. She said she tried an amicable solution, offering to remove the fandub, but Crunchyroll declined.
She said that she started her career as a voice actress with Fandubs and that today she is fired because of a fandub. Finally, she asks fans not to harass the new actress who will play Kushida in Classroom of the Elite anime.
In a statement, Crunchyroll confirmed that Anna Lauzeray-Gishi is no longer their contract, but that it cannot provide a reason for her departure.
