Disney Fires Conservative Actress Gina Carano From Mandalorian

Carano

Lucasfilm and Disney+ cut ties with Mandalorian star Gina Carano after the conservative actress was once again accused of insensitive social media tweets.

"Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children," Carano recently said on Tik Tok, Deadline reports. "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 former mixed martial artist portrayed bounty hunter Cara Dune on the Star Wars-spinoff Disney+ series.

Unurprisingly, Carano's comparison did not go over well. Carano has also mocked mask wearing during the pandemic and the Democratic Party's endorsement of masking. Echoing Donald Trump, Carano tweeted about election fraud just as Joe Biden was cruising to victory in the presidential election.

Carano did not gain fans in the trans community when, responding to suggestions she add pronouns to her Twitter profile, she changed them to "beep/bop/boop" back in September. Carano, accused by many of mocking trans people and their allies, stood by her decision in a subsequent tweet, saying people were "harassing" her to display her pronouns. 

After Carano's Tik Tok was shared widely this week, #fireginacarano trended on Twitter.

"Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," a Lucasfilm spokeswoman said. "Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
