Gina Carano was dismissed from Disney’s The Mandalorian over a controversial online post. The actress has cited Disney and Lucasfilm’s bullying.
The actress shared an Instagram story earlier this month that compared hating someone for their political views to treating Jewish people during the Holocaust.
Lucasfilm, who make The Mandalorian called the post ‘offensive and unacceptable.’
But in an interview with The Ben Shapiro Show, Carano has defended herself.
She says that she has seen the bullying that takes place. Also, she is going to go down fighting. The actress is playing the role of Cara Dune in the series.
“Do you know how boxers headhunt? At times they omit to go to the body. And I feel like Lucasfilms or Disney, or whoever it is, maybe just certain people of that company. I feel like I have been headhunted for the last I don’t know how many months, and you can feel it.” Said the actress in a statement.
The Star War series The Mandalorian is displayed on Disney plus.
What did her post exactly say?
In her controversial post, the former MMA fighter compared hating someone for their political views is the US treatment of Jewish people during the Holocaust in Nazi Germany.
Millions of Jewish crowd and other minorities were executed by the Nazi through World War Two.
Carano told the conservative host Shapiro that the post was about how the people are tearing each other apart. Additionally, she said that she thought the post might bring the people together.
She added that she has actually grown the experience. Moreover, it’s not fair for the Jews community to throw this out there. Moreover, if you say the word Nazi or call personage Nazi, you should have a bit more honour. Carano said that she realises that and she has a love for everyone. She is not a detestable person.
The actress told Shapiro that she found out she wouldn’t be returning to the series on social media, not from Disney or Lucasfilms.
