There is a new rumor spinning around that Disney has demanded Gina Carano apologize for mean tweets or she won’t get her Mandalorian spin off for Cara Dune.
There are a lot of people out there who post much more offensive and inflammatory things on the internet than Gina Carano, but her status as a principal cast member on one of the world’s biggest TV shows has acted as a lightning rod for controversy given her itchy Twitter finger over the last few months.
Fans have repeatedly been calling for Disney and Lucasfilm to hand the actress her marching orders from The Mandalorian, but other than offer personal thoughts that go against the grain of things like popular opinion and proven science, she hasn’t technically done anything wrong.
Still, it feels as if barely a day goes by without Carano making the headlines for her social media activity, and even though they can’t outright fire her based on her posts, Disney will be keenly aware of the continued backlash, something that won’t sit well with the Mouse House’s staunchly family-friendly reputation.
Of course, ever since Cara Dune first appeared on The Mandalorian, there’s been talk of her getting a spinoff, although fans have considerably cooled on the idea recently. And while it remains to be seen what’ll happen with it, insider Daniel Richtman claims that Disney have now taken matters into their own hands and asked the former MMA fighter to apologize for her repeated transgressions, otherwise she can forget about that solo series.
