Social Media was on fire yesterday with the news that Gina Carano who portrays Cara Dune in The Mandalorian has been fired by Lucasfilm for her antisemitic Twitter comments.
I won’t be posting what she said on her Twitter feed, but you can find it via Google if you look it up. An article in the Hollywood reporter also confirmed the actress has been dropped by her agency UTA:
Just to be clear, she did not get fired for having controversial political views. She was fired for comments she made comparing her plight as a conservative in America to that of the Jewish people during the Nazi occupation in World War II. Having a difference of opinion is accepted on social media (well, mostly) but making antisemitic comments is not.
Some fans have come to her defence by saying that she was practising her right as an American to free speech. But others are angered by her comments about Jews specifically.
I think you always need to be guarded on social media in general and pay attention to what you say. That’s just a given for anyone using social media. For someone like Gina, who is a celebrity and has all eyes on her due to this, it’s impossible to say anything without people taking sides and pointing fingers at you. The pressure must be enormous. However, Gina really did cross the line, I think. She should have sat on her comments for an hour or two before posting.
I wonder if Twitter will do anything about her profile now as she must be one of the most disliked celebrities on their platform.
What do you think of this? Have a difference in opinion? Let me know in the comments friends!
Catch you there or in tomorrow’s post and as always much 💜💜💜 to you all and stay safe out there!
