Gina Carano is a maverick and was once a celebrated MMA fighter. Together with Cris Cyborg, she was one of the pioneers of Woman’s MMA. After hanging up her MMA gloves, she moved to the world of acting and made a name for herself there too. She featured in big banner films like Fast & Furious 6 (2013) and Deadpool (2016) and looked unstoppable. Next, she bagged the role of Cara Dune in Disney+’s show The Mandalorian and was there for two seasons. However, things took a turn for the worse when she made a few controversial social media posts. In response to this, Lucasfilm sacked her.

Explaining her side of the story, the Mandalorian star told Fox News anchor Tucker Carlson:

“I was just trying to keep my head down, not cause any problems – work hard, get the next job, be really excited to be a part of every project, make sure you do your job the best you can and keep on crawling forward to solidify that career where you can eventually be like, okay, I’m ready. I’m ready.”

Talking about trans rights hashtags and her refusal to comply with the company’s directions, Gina Carano then said:

“When I wouldn’t hashtag trans rights, I wouldn’t put my pronouns and like they kept on it, pressuring, and finally, I just said, ‘I’m not doing this,’”  “I didn’t even know what people were talking about. I was just not clued into the pronouns thing, which apparently has been happening for like seven, eight years now, right?”

Next, she detailed the directions allegedly given to her by Lucasfilm and talked about her disagreement with some of them and how it made her feel:


“Lucasfilm called me and they were like, ‘Okay, we’re gonna need you to get go on a zoom call with 45 of our LGBTQ community and we have to get you on the phone with these people,” she added. “We need to have you watch the media and have you watch all these movies about trans lives. I was like, ‘Okay, I’ll watch your documentaries, and I’ll talk to your people, but I’m not going to get on a zoom call with 45 different people who can have their phones out videotaping me.’ I feel like that’s extremely abusive.”

Her relationship with Lucasfilm and Disney ended. However, she found opportunities elsewhere.
