Disney may be facing another lawsuit. The Walt Disney Company, along with many other companies, has succumbed to the decision to let employees go due to controversy. It has become a more recent act of firing workers after tweets resurface that show disrespect towards certain communities in conjunction with racial slurs, political statements, or liking tweets that insinuate that.

While many have fallen victim to these firings, an actress, in particular, is still fighting against her injustice job loss. Gina Carano was an actress for Disney starring as New Republic Marshal Cara Dune in The Mandalorian (2019). As she rose to fame for her role, tweets resurfaced that soon brought her career to a halt. Now, two years later, Carano is still (trying) to fight back.

Disney Fires Gina Carano

It seems the actress hasn’t let go of her 2021 firing from The Mandalorian. She was featured in the first two series of the Disney Plus show but was soon replaced in the third season by Mary Elizabeth Winstead. Her opinions were aired on X, formerly known as Twitter, which did not coincide with the views of The Walt Disney Company, resulting in letting her go. “Carano questioned pandemic lockdown protocols, poked fun at 21st-century pronoun use and, infamously, compared elements of modern culture to 1930s Germany,” Daily Wire writes.

It’s important to note that this occurred in 2021, and while fans were divided by her opinions, Disney made the rash decision to part ways with the actress. She initially fought back using the same platform that cost her her role, with hashtags #WeLoveCaraDune#FireGinaCarano, and #IStandWithGinaCarano. She has since starred in My Son Hunter (2022) and Terror on The Prairie (2022), but neither compares to her role in the Star Wars series.

Is Elon Musk Helping Gina Carano?

Owner of X, formerly known as Twitter, Elon Musk, took to his platform to inform those who lost their jobs and careers due to tweets may be entitled to assistance from the company. Musk wrote,

“If you were unfairly treated by your employer due to posting or liking something on this platform, we will fund your legal bill,” Musk said. “No limit. Please let us know… and we won’t just sue, it will be extremely loud and we will go after the boards of directors of the companies too.”

Gina Carano quickly replied back to the tweet but has since not publicly been answered by Musk.

Inside the Magic pointed out, “Over two years later, Carano isn’t ready to let go of everything she lost.” It looks like Carano may not be passed the firing she finds to be unfair, and ready to take action against The Walt Disney Company.
