Carano Sues Disney For Firing Her After Smear Campaign

Feb 7, 2024 | Political News

Nearly three years after the Star Wars franchise owners fired her from the hit TV series “The Mandalorian” over a repost on social media, producer and actress Gina Carano plans to sue Disney’s Lucasfilm for caving to a “bullying smear campaign aimed at silencing, destroying & making an example out of me.”

“The truth is I was being hunted down from everything I posted to every post I liked because I was not in line with the acceptable narrative of the time,” Carano wrote in a long post on X on Tuesday. “My words were consistently twisted to demonize & dehumanize me as an alt right wing extremist.”

Lucasfilm gave Carano the boot in February 2021 at the behest of keyboard warriors who complained one of her reposts — which referenced Jews who were “beaten in the streets” because “the government first made their own neighbors hate them” — was “antisemitic” and “racist.” Former Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp even called Carano a “Nazi” and accused her of being “involved with white supremacists.”
