Gina Carano is “not currently employed by Lucasfilm,” the company said in a statement Wednesday after controversy erupted over “The Mandalorian” star’s social media posts. “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Carano shared several offensive posts on her Instagram stories Tuesday night, including one that likened contemporary political differences to the treatment of Jews in Nazi Germany. In another post, Carano shared a photo of a person wearing multiple cloth masks with the caption, “Meanwhile in California…” Both posts were gone from Carano’s Instagram by mid-day Wednesday. Other posts, including one in which Carano wrote “Jeff Epstein didn’t kill himself,” remained.

Carano is no stranger to social media controversy. In the past she has criticized those that make use of pronouns to identify themselves by referring to herself as Beep/Bop/Boop on her Twitter profile. They have since been removed. She also posted a tweet that was seen as anti mask amid the global pandemic. The hashtag #FireGinaCarano began circulating on Twitter Wednesday in response to her posts. Many users tagged Lucasfilm and corporate parent Disney in their posts.

Disney announced in December that their new show Rangers of the New Republic which will be a direct spin-off of The Mandalorian and there was rumor that the show would revolve around her however that was merely a rumor since the cast has not even been announced yet.
