Rebel scum? Mandalorian fans want Gina Carano fired from Star Wars over ‘violent and harmful’ tweets

New, comments

Many Bothans cried to bring us this information.

Former Strikeforce headliner Gina Carano, who retired from mixed martial arts (MMA) back in 2010 to pursue a career in Hollywood, is getting torched by unhappy Star Wars fans for her recent activity on social media.

As of Sunday night, #FireGinaCarano was trending on Twitter.

Carano, 38, currently plays Cara Dune on the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian” and has come under fire for her tweets on the presidential election, COVID-19, the LGBT community, and a couple of other hot-button topics.

Here’s a sample:

Carano announced on her Twitter account that she recently joined Parler, a relatively new social media app that allows users to communicate “free of agenda-driven shadow-banning” though some media outlets claim it’s a safe haven for extremists spreading misinformation.

“The more lying, cheating, demoralizing and hate I see, the clearer it is for me to feel the power of HOPE, TRUTH, RESPECT & LOVE,” Carano said. “Let your spirit be filled with strength and peace. Breathe.”

Episode four of The Mandalorian drops this Thursday on Disney+.
