Social Media Posts leads to Gina Carano being fired from The Mandalorian
Gina Carano, best known for playing the role of rebel fighter turned mercenary Cara Dune in the Star Wars TV series The Mandalorian, is no longer a part of the show, according to reports published in The Hollywood Reporter.
Carano was sacked after her social media posts in which she implied that the persecution one faces as a Republican in today’s United States was equivalent to what a Jew faced in Nazi Germany.
A statement from Lucasfilm’s spokesperson read, “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.”
The post which was deleted is circulating rounds on the social media platforms under the hashtag #FireGinaCarano:

“They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” a source with knowledge of Lucasfilm’s told to the Hollywood Reporter.
