Cancelled Actress Takes Revenge With Mega Suit

The Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano, whose character was dropped from the Disney+ actor Wars series, has sued Lucasfilm and The Walt Disney Company.

Reports show the case, which was filed in a federal court in California last week, claims that Carano’s “right-wing views” on social media were the reason for her wrongful dismissal from her role as rebel fighter Cara Dune.

With a court order, Carano demands either a return to the series for $75,000 or damages. The actress asserts that the termination has caused her immense mental distress and has deprived her of millions of dollars in prospective earnings.

The action follows Carano’s 2021 firing, which Lucasfilm said was due to her alleged discrediting persons due to their religious and cultural identities on social media postings. Carano vehemently denied the accusation.

Although her liberal co-star, Pedro Pascal, was not punished for his liberal beliefs, the actress feels she was unjustly targeted since she has been a vocal conservative in Hollywood.

A new player has emerged.  Tech billionaire Elon Musk and his firm, X,  will provide financial support to Carano’s legal fight.   Musk recently promised limitless legal support for people whose employers treated them unjustly because of what they posted on social media—narratives that question the status quo.

Joe Benarroch, head of business operations at X Corp, made the announcement to the media that the company is proud to pay for Gina Carano’s lawsuit, which will allow her to seek redress for her free speech rights and the right to an environment free from bullying, harassment, and discrimination.

Carano vented her frustrations about the double standards that were imposed on her and her male colleagues, as well as the harm that was done to her reputation and career, in a lengthy statement that she posted on X. She said she was the target of a smear effort and strongly denied that her tweets were hostile or disparaging.
