One of the stars of the Disney-Plus Star Wars series The Mandalorian, has been canceled by Hollywood’s cancel culture elitists after a series of brutally honest and accurate social media posts addressing both Black Lives Matter protests and today’s current political climate.
Gina Carano, who played Cara Dune, a recurring character in the Star Wars spinoff series produced by Lucasfilm and Disney, was abruptly canceled (read: terminated) from her contract after a tweet explaining the verifiable correlations between the genesis of the Holocaust and how Trump supporters, conservatives and Republicans are being treated in the political arena today.
A Lucasfilm spokesperson issued a statement 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’s talent agency, United Talent Agency, also dropped her as a client.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children,” Carano posted in her now deleted “abhorrent and unacceptable tweet.
“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,” her tweet continued. “How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?”
Carano did delete the post but not before it was widely shared online. Her words spurred the #FireGinaCarano hashtag to trend on Twitter. Lucasfilm and Disney bowed to the cancel culture pressure.
The cancel culture mob has been trolling Carano since taking issue with her last August over social media posts that described some Black Lives Matter activists as “cowards and thugs.”
“In my experience, screaming at someone that they are a racist when they are indeed NOT a racist & any post and/or research you do will show you those exact facts. Then I’m sorry, these people are not “educators”…they are cowards and bullies.”
Carano, who also starred in The Deadpool and Fast & Furious 6, received a barrage of death threats on Twitter – something that should have gotten each of the authors banned from platform – after refusing to list her “preferred pronouns” in her Twitter bio.
The harassment and threats were extreme and graphic. Carano, a former MMA champion, mocked those attacking her by saying her pronouns are “boop/bop/beep.”
According to glitterati media outlets, Disney and Lucasfilm abandoned plans to cast Carano as the star of her own Disney-Plus series following her tweets last year.
Carano has not commented on her cancellation (read: firing).
The backlash against Lucasfilms and Disney was immediate and harsh from a number of critics.
Dave Rubin, a popular conservative podcaster who transformed from being one of the Young Turks, said, “Disney has cancelled @ginacarano, so I’m cancelling my @disneyplus…We need to stop giving these people our money and we must build new franchises.”

And Charlie Kirk, President of Turning Point USA, tweeted, “This is your daily reminder that Disney does business in Communist China, where a genocide of Uighur Muslims isn’t enough to elicit any response, but a conservative sharing a ‘wrong-think’ Instagram story is a fireable offense.”

Late Friday, news broke that Carano had landed on her feet. She has been approached by an up-and-coming conservative movie production company to both produce and star in a new movie.
“I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob,” Carano said her announcement of survival in the industry. “I have only just begun using my voice which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same.”
“They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them,” she concluded.
