Gina Carano Files Lawsuit Against Disney Over Firing from “The Mandalorian,” Supported by Elon Musk

Actor Gina Carano terminated by Disney following controversial social media posts discussing topics such as the Holocaust, the pandemic, and transgender rights.

Elon Musk-backed Star Wars Actor Sues Disney Over Firing Due to Controversial Social Media Posts about Holocaust, Pandemic, and Trans Rights

Gina Carano, known for her prominent role in Disney’s hit series The Mandalorian until 2021, filed a lawsuit in California on Tuesday alleging wrongful termination. The suit asserts that Carano was expressing personal political views but faced harassment from an “extreme progressive” online community. It alleges that Disney’s actions and statements have tarnished her reputation and jeopardized her future job prospects.

“Today marks an important step for me—I am taking legal action against @lucasfilm & @Disney,” she announced on X, formerly Twitter.

The lawsuit is being financed by X, confirmed a spokesperson for the company to AFP.

Carano, a vocal former martial artist turned actor, was dismissed by Disney for what the company described at the time as “abhorrent and unacceptable” social media posts that “belittled individuals based on their cultural and religious backgrounds.”

One particularly contentious post shared by Carano appeared to draw a parallel between conservatism in the United States and Judaism in Nazi Germany.

Another post seemed to ridicule individuals wearing multiple masks during the Covid-19 pandemic in California.

Additionally, Carano had previously faced backlash from the transgender community for including “boop/bop/beep” as preferred pronouns on her Twitter profile.

In a statement on Tuesday, Carano claimed she never used aggressive language but rather shared “thought-provoking” content with “respect and occasional humor.”

Both her statement and the lawsuit argue that Carano was afforded less freedom of speech than her male counterparts.

Carano disclosed that an X attorney reached out to her after she responded publicly to a tweet from Musk offering assistance to anyone dismissed for expressing themselves on X.

“As a demonstration of X Corp’s commitment to freedom of speech, we are pleased to offer financial support for Gina Carano’s legal action,” declared an official post by X on Tuesday.

Although the lawsuit does not specify the damages sought by Carano, it alleges that she lost a role in the planned Mandalorian spin-off, Rangers of the New Republic, estimated to be valued at “$150,000 to $250,000 per episode.”
