The actress got fired from the series after making controversial comments on social media
We got to see many iconic characters making their live-action debut in season 2 of The Mandalorian, and the reason it was able to wow fans was because it’s stars avoided press junkets before the show premiered. But Gina Carano recently said that Disney had specifically asked her to sit out of the press cycle after she made comments which many believed to be transphobic. She said that the studio had asked her to make an apology using an exact statement that they provided, but she refused to do so, and gave her own statement.
We got to learn that Carano got fired when Lucasfilm issued a statement. Carano herself got to learn that by reading an article.
About declining their statement and saying what she wanted, Carano clarified that she wasn’t mocking the transgender community but was just drawing attention to the abuse of the mob in forcing people to put pronouns in their bio.
Putting pronouns is a growing trend among the LGBTQ+ community and their allies in social media profiles so as to normalize the concept. Carano put “beep/bop/boop” into her profile, which many interpreted as a mockery of the trend.
Her other behaviour
Carano had caused controversy through other behaviours as well, such as various posts last year which were interpreted as her being against masks, posts against Black Lives Matter protests, and posts spreading the idea of voter fraud in the presidential election. Even though they made her avoid press for The Mandalorian season 2, Disney was still considering to give her a Cara Dune spinoff series.
Lucasfilm has said that she is no longer employed by them and there are no plans for that in the future.
