The decision comes after she shared a controversial post on Instagram

A spokesperson for Lucasfilm confirmed that Gina will not return to the show, stating: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future.”

The statement continued: “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Gina portrayed the recurring role of Rebel Alliance soldier Cara Dune for the first two seasons of The Mandalorian.

Earlier on Wednesday, the hashtag #FireGinaCarano was trending on social media after the outspoken conservative actress and former mixed martial artist shared an Instagram post that was met with extreme backlash.

Fans begged for Gina to be fired following the controversial post

The post has since been deleted, though screenshots were taken and have been widely shared by social media users who demanded she be fired from the popular Disney+ show.

Gina reshared a post that compared modern American politics to Nazi Germany, while she claimed that having different political views in 2021 was similar to being Jewish during the Holocaust.

According to Variety, the since deleted post said: “Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views.”

The 38-year-old actress is no stranger to controversy, as she was previously slammed after mocking mask wearing amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Gina was also under fire after she falsely suggested that voter fraud took place during the 2020 presidential election.

“They have been looking for a reason to fire her for two months, and today was the final straw,” a source close to Lucasfilm told The Hollywood Reporter.

The Mandalorian premiered on Disney+ in back November 2019.

Gina’s character Cara Dune became an instant fan favorite, as the actress was praised for her portrayal of the role.

As the series had continued success, she soon became a controversial figure among fans of the show due to her tweets.
