#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 for comparing being a Republican in the United States to being a European Jew during the time of the Holocaust.
On her Instagram story, Carano shared a post from another social media account detailing how strong fascist influence in Europe made it easier for Nazis to persecute Jews by first making the rest of the world hate them. The post ends by positing, “How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” Notably, Carano herself is an outspoken conservative.
In the time since she shared the post, #FireGinaCarano has started trending on Twitter, with thousands calling for Disney and Lucasfilm to remove her from The Mandalorian.
Created by Jon Favreau, The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal, Gina Carano, Carl Weathers and Giancarlo Esposito. Season 3 has yet to receive a premiere date.
