Lucasfilm has ‘no plans’ to work with the actor again on the Disney+ Star Wars series after she appeared to compare the treatment of Republicans in the US to that of Jews in Nazi Germany
Gina Carano will not be returning to the Disney+ television series The Mandalorian, after Lucasfilm announced there were “no plans” for the actor to come back after her “abhorrent and unacceptable” posts on social media. The former mixed-martial-arts fighter and star of the films Deadpool and Haywire appeared to compare the treatment of Republicans in America to that of Jewish people in Nazi Germany.
Carano, who played the bounty hunter Cara Dune in both seasons of the Star Wars spin-off, wrote in a post on Instagram that is no longer available: “Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbours … even by children … Because history is edited, most people today don’t realise that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbours hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.”
