"The Mandalorian" SPOILER ALERT - what's her name got fired

Gina Carano Is No Longer a Part of Star Wars

Gina Carano, who plays Cara Dune on The Mandalorian, will no longer be on the show.

In a statement obtained by io9, a Lucasfilm spokesperson said the following: “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 news comes after a day in which the hashtag #FireGinaCarano trended on Twitter for hours. The night before, the actress shared an anti-Semitic story on her Instagram. It was soon deleted but many fans captured it and shared it on social media.

9. The actress grated on me

I love the Mandalorian series, but Gina Carano really grated on me. The way she played Cara Dune just seemed vapid, and she always had this smile on her face even when you could see the director wanted to give the impression of a tough as nails cop. My suspicion is that she had already worn out her welcome even before this incident.

I've also heard that fans are trying to push Lucy Lawless for the same part. That would be awesome.

10. Thanks for posting the IO9 article.

I was done with her when she went TERF. Didn't realize she was also anti-masker, anti-vaccines, and Anti-BLM.

14. Gina Carano Was Purposely Cut from Those Big Star Wars Announcements Months Ago

Disney made the decision to cut this lady loose a while back https://movieweb.com/gina-carano-fired-months-ago-star-wars/?fbclid=IwAR1a9jANRu8BLuKKPqhrQq8Kc4h8T-t_MRK1Z81qOOypCfDdn9QauirN-78

The trending news of this Wednesday night was Lucasfilm firing actress Gina Carano from not only The Mandalorian but also effectively ending the chances of her appearance in future Star Wars projects. The step was taken after she posted several controversial social media posts that garnered a severe backlash, prompting Lucasfilm to severe ties with her as they found them "abhorrent and unacceptable". But as per a recent report, Carano didn't just lose her role as Cara Dune in the hit Disney+ series but also the opportunity to lead a Star Wars series, most likely the recently announced Rangers of the New Republic, which was in the pipeline before she got all tangled in controversies.

Since November 2020, former MMA fighter Gina Carano has been attracting social media ire through her controversial posts that started with her mocking the need for wearing masks amidst the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, transphobic tweets, followed by her spreading the false news that voter fraud has occurred during the recently held presidential elections. #FireGinaCarano has been trending for a long time as fans of The Mandalorian constantly sought her removal from the series as her contentious posts continued.

15. Woman was this close to having her own Star Wars show.

She couldn’t stop trolling even to save her job.

Star Wars money is forever money.

Fucking dumbshit.
