After being fired by Lucasfilm for « horrendous » and « unacceptable » posts on social media, Gina Carano (who played Cara Dune in The Mandalorian) spoke favorably of his former co-star Pedro Pascal. This, a couple of days after a wave of controversy reached the Chilean actor due to a publication of his from past years that has resurfaced on Twitter.
This past weekend, Gina Carano spoke on a The Ben Shapiro Show special, where she spoke at length with the show’s host (an ally of hers) regarding her abrupt end of relationship with the company behind the Star Wars franchise. At the center of controversy for months, the Texan actor was finally fired by Lucasfilm after she posted on Instagram a wild comparison between Jews during the Holocaust and current supporters of the Republican Party in the US.
In 2018, Pedro Pascal also chose to make a reference to Nazi Germany by establishing a parallel – through a Twitter meme – between the suffering of those Jews and that of migrant children who were separated from their families during the Donald Trump regime. This tweet re-emerged in recent days and netizens expressed outrage that the Disney subsidiary has not proceeded with Pascal in the same way it did with Carano.
During his recent chat with the former martial arts fighter, Ben Shapiro brought up that alleged Lucasfilm contradiction around who he fired and who he didn’t. For now, Gina Carano made it clear that, when it comes to grudges, she does not have any for Pedro Pascal.
« You know what? I adore Pedro. I love it. I know you have said and done hurtful things. But I know he thinks that a lot of the things I post are [incorrectas]but there’s still a lot of love there«Said the actress (via). And we came to an agreement after realizing that we were a bit different politically. We had an agreement that, first and foremost, you are a human being. And you are my friend first. I know we’ve both taken a wrong step in our tweets. We are not perfect. We are human beings. But he’s not a bad human being. He is a sweet person.
On the other hand, Gina Carano confessed to Ben Shapiro that she felt haunted by the House of the Mouse for some time because of her political positions.
« You know how boxers sometimes hunt heads and forget to go for the body? I feel like Disney or Lucasfilm or whoever – just certain people in that company – have been hunting my head.. They have been on me and they have been watching me like hawks. I see people in the same production who can say whatever they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I did not agree with the narrative«.
Currently, a film produced by and starring Carano is in development, with the support of conservative outlet The Daily Wire. Come on here to read the full note.

Toño Guzmán I have a very bad memory. Out of solidarity with my memories, I choose to lose myself too. Preferably in a movie theater.
