Lucasfilm has published the following statement about the deadline: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for the future. Even so, their social media posts vilifying people because of their cultural and religious identity are obnoxious and unacceptable. “
What was the straw that broke the camel’s back? Carano recently wrote an Instagram post in which he compares being a Republican in the US and being a Jew in Nazi Germany.
“Jews were beaten on the street not by Nazis, but by their neighbors … even by children. With the story being edited, most people today do not know that the government made their own neighbors hate them just for being Jews, to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily bring thousands of Jews together. How is that different from hating someone for their political views? “
This post was deleted from Caranos IG, but the hashtag #FireGinaCarano has been trending on Twitter since then.
It was also widely expected that Carano would return for The Mandalorian Season 3. In addition, Cara Dune is said to be a main character Rangers of the New Republic, an upcoming spinoff series. It’s unclear whether Lucasfilm will write the character down or cast a new one.
