#FireGinaCarano is trending on social media thanks to a post by The Mandalorian’s Gina Carano comparing Republicans to Holocaust-era Jews.
The mandalorian Star Gina Carano, who plays former Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune, has drawn ire on social media by comparing being a Republican in the United States to being a European Jew during the Holocaust era.
About his Instagram Carano shared a post from another social media account detailing how the strong fascist influence in Europe made it easier for the Nazis to persecute Jews by making the rest of the world hate them. The post ends by asking: “How is that different from hating someone for their political opinions?” Notably, Carano herself is an outspoken conservative.
In the time since you shared the post, #FireGinaCarano has started to be trending on Twitter, with thousands of people calling for Disney and Lucasfilm to remove it from The mandalorian.
Gina Carano says that being a Republican today is equivalent to being a Jew during the Holocaust.
The level of cognitive dissonance is shocking. #FireGinaCarano

It is DESPICABLE that Gina Carano is comparing being a Republican to being Jewish during the Holocaust, and it is INFURIANT that she sees #FireGinaCarano as proof of your point. That woman is a disease. And although it’s far from the point … she can’t act.

Carano has caused controversy in the past. Notable examples include what was perceived as a mockery of the transgender community by inserting “beep / bop / boop” into their Twitter bio instead of pronouns; discourage the use of masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic; suggesting the possibility of voter fraud during the 2020 presidential elections. In fact, this is not the first time that #FireGinaCarano has been trending on Twitter.
Created by Jon Favreau, The mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers, and Giancarlo Esposito. Season 3 has yet to receive a release date.
