In the wake of Gina Carano’s controversial social media posts, Lucasfilm has released a statement Wednesday night, with a spokesperson saying “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.”
Carano played bounty hunter Cara Dune on the first two seasons Lucasfilm and Disney+’s The Mandalorian, and it looked like we’d be seeing more of her. It appears not.
The actress shared a TikTok post comparing the current divided political climate in the U.S. to Nazi Germany.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views,” she wrote.
Another photo on Carano’s Instagram story featured a person with several masks covering their face and head with the caption: “Meanwhile in California.”
Both posts were scrubbed from the actress’ Instagram this afternoon, but others picked it up and reposted (see below). Other posts, including a quote saying “Expecting everyone you encounter to agree with every belief or view you hold is f*cking wild,” and one saying “Jeff Epstein didn’t kill himself,” remained.
The hashtag #FireGinaCarano begin trending, with those on social media tagging Mandalorian creator Jon Favreau, Disney, Disney+, Star Wars and Lucasfilm.
Carano and her supporters attempted to get the hashtag #weloveginacarano to trend. Carano retweeted the post below on her account.

Carano rose to fame as an MMA fighter competing in Strikeforce and EliteXC. She retired from MMA competition and segued to acting, one of her early launches being the 2011 Steven Soderbergh movie Haywire. She went on to star in Fast & Furious 6 and Deadpool, playing Angel Dust in the latter Marvel/20th Century Fox hit.
