Mandalorian Star Gina Carano Suing Disney For Wrongful Termination

Gina Carano, the actress and former MMA fighter who starred in Disney’s “The Mandalorian,” is now suing Disney and Lucasfilm for wrongful termination in an attempt to recoup “millions in lost income.”

“A short time ago in a galaxy not so far away, Defendants made it clear that only one orthodoxy in thought, speech, or action was acceptable in their empire, and that those who dared to question or failed to fully comply would not be tolerated,” the lawsuit reads.

“But the rule of law still reigns over the Defendants’ empire,” the lawsuit continued. “And Carano has returned to demand that they be held accountable for their bullying, discriminatory, and retaliatory actions—actions that inflicted not only substantial emotional harm, but millions of dollars in lost income.”

According to Fox News, Carano made waves during her time with the show for “refusing to support movements and ideologies with which she did not agree.” Some of those ideologies included Black Lives Matter, transgender pronouns and COVID lockdowns.

Carano pinpointed one specific statement made by Lucasfilm on Twitter that she believes proves she was wrongfully terminated.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm & there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural & religious identities are abhorrent & unacceptable,” the Tweet reads.

That tweet from Lucasfilm came after Carano compared the way that American conservatives are treated today with the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. In her post, Carano said that the first step is to “dehumanize a certain group of people.”

Carano can be seen in seven episodes of “The Mandalorian” in her role as Cara Dune. There were rumors that Disney had plans to start a new series with her as the star before she lost her job with Lucasfilms.

Following Carano’s announcement of the suit, X Corp said it would be funding Carano’s legal fees due to its “commitment to free speech.”

“The online platform is proud to provide financial support for Carano’s lawsuit, empowering her to seek vindication of her free speech rights on X and the ability to work without bullying, harassment, or discrimination,” the statement by X Corp reads.
