Former “The Mandalorian” star Gina Carano recently revealed how she learned about her exit from “Star Wars.”
- “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement, according to io9.
Carano had shared an Instagram photo post on her Instagram story that compared Jewish people attacked during the Nazi Germany era to how people are treated in modern times due to their political beliefs, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
How she found out
- “I found out through social media, like everyone else, that I had been fired,” she said.
- “The image for me was a statement that people need to stand together and rise up, stop being so manipulated by the powers that believe they know what’s best for you and play games with our lives,” she wrote. “My heart has only ever had ultimate respect and love for the Jewish community.”
