Gina Carano will not return to her role The Mandalorian after a backlash on their recent social media content.
A spokesman for Lucasfilm, the production company behind the Disney + show, made a statement to E! On Wednesday, February 10, it was announced that the former mixed martial artist had finished her run as Cara Dune. The recurring character appeared in the first two seasons of the Emmy-winning series that is part of the war of stars Franchise.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm, and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” the statement said. “Still, their social media posts that vilify people because of their cultural and religious identity are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Earlier in the day, the hashtag #FireGinaCarano was trending in response to her social media activity. That included a message she reposted on her Instagram story on February 9, which apparently compared the experience of being politically conservative today to the plight of the Jewish people during the Holocaust.
