What happened to Gina Carano?
Disney and Lucasfilm decided to cut ties with Carano after months of her receiving social media backlash. Carano often tweeted her opinions on multiple hot-button issues, like the COVID-19 vaccine, Democrats, face masks and voter fraud, among other political issues, as I wrote for the Deseret News.
Before she was fired, she shared a post that compared people who get scolded over their political beliefs to Jewish people being attacked during Nazi Germany.
