Gina Carano Gets Canceled Following Controversial Tweets

Mandalorian star and retired MMA fighter Gina Carano sparks controversy with recent tweets, spawns #FireGinaCarano trend on Twitter

Gina Carano Gets Canceled Following Controversial Tweets

When she was competing inside the confines of MMA, Gina Carano was one of the most beloved figures in the sport. However nowadays she is finding herself in the middle of controversy, with a trending hashtag designed to get her to lose her job.

When Carano left the MMA world behind, few thought that she would achieve the type of success that she has found in Hollywood. Nevertheless she has managed to land roles in major Marvel movies, and most recently on the Disney+ Star Wars series, The Mandalorian. At the time it seemed like a great thing for someone that was so beloved by the sport she helped to pioneer.

Fire Gina Carano?

Unfortunately it seems that these days, Gina Carano is not being looked upon so favorably. The last several weeks have seen her posting some controversial and political things on her social media. Take for example, this lengthy tweet voicing concerns over the widely disproven claim that the 2020 Presidential Election was tainted by voter fraud.

“We need to clean up the election process so we are not left feeling the way we do today.
Put laws in place that protect us against voter fraud.
Investigate every state.
Film the counting.
Flush out the fake votes.
Require ID.
Make Voter Fraud end in 2020.
Fix the system. 🇺🇸”

If this did not convince you, there is more. Not only is she regurgitating false ideas of corruption, but she has also been a big proponent for anti-mask causes. She regularly shares remarks about how the coronavirus pandemic is fake and a way to brainwash society, a sentiment that she has fully embraced recently.

Although some (not very bright) people may agree with her, this has caused some serious outrage against Carano. This has led to the hashtag #FireGinaCarano which even started trending on Twitter.

To be clear, cancel culture is not a very productive way of conducting behavior, despite how prominent it has become. However it is still surprising to see this turn of events for Gina Carano, who was once regarded very highly. Then again, when it comes to the MMA world she tends to align herself with similar interests as other fighters, so maybe it is not that surprising after all.

Gina Carano is pretty awesome. I suppose small, weak men must feel pretty emasculated around her. Misogyny comes in many flavors.

I think I'll adopt her as my spirit animal.

Derek, rather than attack a woman who makes you feel inadequate, you should work on strengthening your own body and mind.

Please have a stronger 2021 than 2020.

Hopefully her career isn't destroyed! Heard a good idea that she would be a PERFECT candidate for a live action Battletoads Dark Queen

Derek Hall: "...it is extremely irresponsible for her to throw her opinions around."

Why? Like you say, they're just opinions. If she wants to post her thoughts on a given subject, on her own social media account, who are you to say she can't? She hasn't broken any laws. If you're a Democrat, or part of the LGBT++ community, (or whatever), and you don't like her posts, *don't follow her*.

You are just seeking out things to be outraged about. Not only are you part of the problem, but arguably a bigger part of it. If anyone posts something you don't like, you could just mute, block and move on... but you don't. Instead you create an inflated (if not phony) outrage and then share it with other like-minded woke-SJW-snowflake-cancelaholic hypocrites and make total fools outta yourselves, posting outrageous, disturbing and even illegal comments.

But hey, you'll throw anyone under the bus if it means a few more clicks, right? TYHOOYA ffs.

Hey Wolf thanks for commenting!

You're right, they are just opinions. She is more than entitled to said opinions, but when placed in a position where people look up to you it is irresponsible to spout opinions that incite behavior that is not conducive to a healthy society. Especially when those opinions are about something that is centered around physical evidence and facts, yet there is no evidence to back the claims.

Have a happy holidays.

Quote "Although some (not very bright) people may agree with her, this has caused some serious outrage against Carano." More judgment passed by so-called journalists. #disgrace_to_the_profession Derek, start working on your second career! Sincerely, Not the only Dem starting to be embarrassed by US media's unabashed bias.

@Derek Hall, it's the public that chooses. We approve Gina Carano. We cancel Derek Hall.

Hey Mark, thanks for commenting!

My sincerest apologies for making you feel like I am a disgrace to my profession. That being said, when I am actually considered a journalist, by myself or anyone, I will be sure to let you know. :)
