“The Mandalorian” star Gina Carano recently shared a social media post that appeared to mock the COVID-19 vaccine and mail-in voting, or showed support for it.

What happened?

On Dec. 8, Carano shared a new social media post that included a paragraph of white text on a green background. The text read:

Reaction:

Social media responded to Carano’s post pretty quickly. Some supported her post, saying that she should be free to share her opinions on social media.

Flashback:

Carano has been under fire for her political tweets this year. Carano questioned voter fraud in the 2020 election, suggesting the country eliminate fake votes and require identification at the voting booths, which I wrote about for the Deseret News.

Carano also posted a photo that mocked people who wore face masks. She posted the meme on her Twitter account.

The hashtag #FireGinaCarano started to trend on Twitter soon after.

Is she leaving ‘The Mandalorian’ or not?

“The Mandalorian” seemed to set up a possible exit strategy for Disney and Carano when the New Republic showed up and offered her a position. This could give the character a chance to leave the program if she wanted, as I wrote for the Deseret News.

At the same time, “Star Wars” could soon announce a Cara Dune spinoff show, which has been long-rumored among the community.
