Gina Carano is back in the world of Hollywood since being canceled by the internet. Subsequently, she was removed from her role in Star War’s “The Mandalorian.” Now, Carano will be featured in an untitled thriller, set to be released in the future.
#FireGinaCarano Hashtag Origins
Carano’s outburst in which she compared being a Republican today to being Jewish during the Holocaust sparked the hashtag #FireGinaCarano. Since then, Carano has deleted all of her posts on the subject.
Carano is no stranger to sparking controversy on social media. In the past, Carano was vocal on her beliefs that the last Presidential election was tainted by voter fraud. Furthermore, the Capitol Hill riots were justified according to a crop of tweets that she “liked.” Gina also used her platform to push the narrative that the current coronavirus pandemic is a hoax.
Lucasfilm decided to part ways with Carano, as her comments offended many, specifically the Jewish community. Now, half a year later, it looks like Carano has finally landed a meaningful role in the industry.
