“The Mandalorian” star Gina Carano is facing criticism for her recent social media activity tied to the election, with some fans calling for her to be dropped from the show.

What’s happening?

Carano — who plays ally Cara Dune on the show — has recently expressed her political opinions on social media, talking about voter fraud in the election.

Carano tweeted about getting rid of fake votes and requiring proper identification at the elections.

Social media reaction:

People on social media responded to the actress’ tweets. Of course, the responses are really isolated to social media, and there’s no indication the general public is feeling this way. Still, fans did express backlash to Carano’s tweets about voter fraud, saying the former UFC fighter might need to be let go from the show.

Pedro Pascal faced controversy, too

In October, there were some rumors that Pedro Pascal — who plays the Mandalorian on “Star Wars: The Mandalorian” — left the show after he “had numerous disagreements with the creative team and went to the studio behind their backs to plead his case, which allegedly resulted in the former ‘Game of Thrones’ star being given his marching orders,” according to We Got This Covered.

However, Pascal posted social media photos that cleared up rumors he had left the show. He is still on “The Mandalorian.”
