Gina Carano Booted From 'The Mandalorian' After Controversial Posts
Gina Carano is once again in hot water for her social media posts but this time Disney was forced to step in. She will not be returning to play fan-favorite "Cara Dune" in The Mandalorian.
Gina Carano has officially lost her role on The Mandalorian. After Star Wars franchise fans have been offended time and time again by her social media posts, she seems to have broken the last straw after a sarcastic Holocaust post.
Gina Carano Controversial Social Media Posts
Gina Carano has put herself into hot water over and over again on social media but now Disney has had enough. The conservative actress has mocked COVID-19 mask-wearing and trans lives supporters.
After both of these situations, she walked back her comments and even received help understanding from her The Mandalorian co-stars. After many Disney cast members were putting their gender labels in their bio to support trans lives she jokingly edited hers to be "beep/bop/boop" which seemed to anger Twitter.
In response to the backlash, she Tweeted, "They're mad cuz I won't put pronouns in my bio to show my support for trans lives. After months of harassing me in every way. I decided to put 3 VERY controversial words in my bio.. beep/bop/boop I'm not against trans lives at all."
After this she deleted all of her Tweets commenting on trans support and said Pedro Pascal helped her "understand why people were putting them in their bios." Pedro's sister Lux has just come out as a transgender woman.
"I didn't know before but I do now. I won't be putting them in my bio but good for all you who choose to. I stand against bullying, especially the most vulnerable & freedom to choose."
Gina Carano Fired From The Mandalorian
Now Gina is in trouble again after she compared being a conservative to being Jewish during the Holocaust. On her Instagram, she shared, "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?"
The Mandalorian fans were furious after this post. One user wrote, "Did she just compare the holocaust to being a republican .. #FireGinaCarano," and another commented, "As a Jewish person, this is f***ing vile and unnecessary. Gina Carano needs to be held accountable. The oppression my people have faced because of our religion and ethnicity is NOT the same as political disagreements."
Another Gina Carano follower Tweeted, "Political disagreements can get violent, that's for sure, but have 6 million Trump supporters been murdered by the government?" Gina quickly deleted her post and blocked countless fans expressing their outrage.
A LucasFilm representative told People, "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."
