Former Star Wars actress Gina Carano announced Tuesday that she is suing the Walt Disney Company and Lucasfilm roughly three years after she was fired over social media posts she had made.
Carano explained that she was contacted by a lawyer from X who helped her move forward with this lawsuit. X owner Elon Musk announced last year that those who were mistreated or fired from their employer “due to posting or liking something on this platform” would have their legal bill funded by X.

Carano, who had played the role of Cara Dune in the Star Wars television series The Mandalorian, was fired from her role in February 2021, with Lucasfilm stating online that her social media posts were “denigrating people based on their cultural & religious identities.” The actress has denied this, stating on X that “nothing could be further from the truth.”
“The truth is I was being hunted down from everything I posted to every post I liked because I was not in line with the acceptable narrative of the time,” Carano wrote on X. “My words were consistently twisted to demonize & dehumanize me as an alt right wing extremist. It was a bullying smear campaign aimed at silencing, destroying & making an example out of me.”
Just before her firing, Carano had posted on Instagram that Jews in the Holocaust were beaten up simply for their religious beliefs, with the post questioning, “How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” Some people online interpreted Carano’s post as comparing Republicans to Jews, though Carano has denied making such a comparison.
Beep/bop/boop has zero to do with mocking trans people 🤍& 💯 to do with exposing the bullying mentality of the mob that has taken over the voices of many genuine causes.
