Gina Carano, formerly known as Cara Dune on Disney+’s hit Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, has accused Disney of bullying her. Carano was fired recently from the series after several objectionable social media posts, arguably the most offensive of which likened the current political divide to the persecution of Jews during Germany’s Nazi era.
Carano’s removal from The Mandalorian came after public outcry over her social media activity, as well as the creation of the hashtag #FireGinaCarano. The move was decisive and quick, but it still left numerous unanswered questions in its wake. Prior to the issue in question, Carano’s stature within the Star Wars universe was growing, with some reports stating that there were plans to create a Cara Dune spinoff that would have seen Carano receive a significant bump in pay. In addition to this, Carano was getting her own Mandalorian action figure (canceled) and it genuinely seemed that she was on the cusp of building something new within the Star Wars universe. Now that her future within the franchise has been scrapped, Carano still isn’t prepared to take stock of the damage she’s caused herself and others. Instead, she’s doing what she can to look like the victim.
