Gina Carano, who played the role of Cara Dune in The Mandalorian, was recently fired from the show by Lucasfilm and they had “no plans for her to be in the future.” It was also stated that “her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Carano became a controversial figure after her problematic posts on social media, which included her comparing the condition of Jews during the Holocaust with the Republicans in America currently. Carano had also mocked the use of pronouns on her Twitter bio and was unapologetic about it. She had simply written ‘beep/bop/boop’ in her bio.
While speaking in a recent interview, Carano revealed that she came to know about her getting fired from the show on social media.
“I found out through social media, like everyone else, that I had been fired.”
She also noted Lucasfilm told her to issue a public apology regarding the controversy over her Twitter bio. Carano refused to use the word ‘apology’ in her statement.
“I made clear I wanted nothing to do with mocking the transgender community and was just drawing attention to the abuse of the mob in forcing people to put pronouns in their bio.”
We will have to see who will replace Gina Carano in the next season of The Mandalorian.
