Thus, from Lucasfilm they have shared an official statement in which they report the dismissal of the actress: “Gina Carano is not currently an employee of Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be one in the future. However, her publications on social networks denigrating people for their cultural and religious identity are abominable and unacceptable ”, reads the statement by the company responsible for Star Wars.
All this after several publications on social networks by Carano, the last one being the most controversial, since she seemed to compare being a republican in the United States today with being a Jew during the Nazi holocaust; Despite everything, the actress quickly deleted the publication, although many followers of her had already captured the post.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, this publication would have ended the patience of Lucasfilm (the hashtag #FireGinaCarano gained a lot of strength in networks) after other comments against wearing a mask during the current coronavirus pandemic or support for the recent assault on the United States Capitol .
Recall that Carano was to be an important character in the expansion of the Star Wars series for Disney +, as in the next Rangers of the New Republic. At the moment it has not been confirmed if Lucasfilm will eliminate the character or hire a new actress for the role.
