Disney and Lucasfilm split from actress Gina Carano for the television series The Mandalorian following numerous controversial messages comparing the current political climate in the United States to that of Nazi Germany.

A Lucasfilm spokesperson suggests that she has already been blacklisted by the production company and therefore should not be expected to return her character: “ Gina Carano is not currently not employed with us and there are no plans to be employed in the future. Nonetheless, his posts on social networks denigrating people because of their cultural and religious identity are odious and unacceptable “. Note that the affair has taken on crazy proportions on social networks with the hashtag #FireGinaCarano which is present in messages addressed to Jon Favreau, Disney, Disney +, the brand Star Wars and Lucasfilm. Gina Carano and her supporters are trying to grow the #WeLoveGinaCarano hashtag in order to hide the truth, but it is obviously already too late.
