Gina Carano fired from 'The Mandalorian' after controversial posts

VESA Channel
Actress Gina Carano has long embraced the force of speaking her mind — an act that got her booted from Star Wars spinoff “The Mandalorian.”
The former MMA fighter was confirmed on Tuesday to have been kicked off the hit Disney+ show, where she played Cara Dune — with Lucasfilm stressing “there are no plans” for her to ever return.
The Star Wars giant made no secret of why she was canceled, ripping “her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities,” which it called “abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Carano’s most controversial message — and the one that appears to have been the final straw — came when she shared an image from Nazi Germany and compared it to today’s overheated political climate.
While Lucasfilm confirmed Wednesday that she was not working on “The Mandalorian,” sources told the Hollywood Reporter that they’d been gunning for her for months.

In fact, it wasn’t the first time that she had caused the hashtag FireGinaCarano to trend over her outspoken opinions.
She also went over mask-wearing and leftist leaders in a post of a mocking “breaking news” alert — and showing two men with masks over their eyes rather than their mouths.
She also joined calls to “open up your businesses & churches” because “people are dropping like flies from depression and suicide, overdoses, MURDER.”
