If you’re like me, you’re really looking forward to Sunday when we can find out more about the Gina Carano vs Disney battle.
Gina Carano may have been fired from her Star Wars gig by Disney on Wednesday, but she’s already got a new project lined up. This time with Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Wire.
On Friday, the conservative media outlet said it had partnered with the actress to produce and star in an upcoming film exclusively for Daily Wire members. The new project will be produced as part of Daily Wire’s existing deal with Dallas Sonnier and his production company, Bonfire Legend.
“They can’t cancel us if we don’t let them,” Carano said in a statement.
The former mixed martial artist was fired from her role as Cara Dune, an ex-Imperial shock trooper, on the Disney+ series “The Mandalorian” following comments she posted on social media that implied conservatives in America were being treated like Jewish people in Nazi Germany.
The comment was just the latest social media controversy Carano has faced in recent months. She had previously shared misinformation about mask wearing and voter fraud and made light of people who include their preferred pronouns on social media by adding “beep/bop/boop” to her Twitter bio.
Carano later removed those words after she said she spoke with co-star Pedro Pascal.
“He helped me understand why people were putting them in their bios,” she wrote. “I didn’t know before but I do now. I won’t be putting them in my bio but good for all you who choose to.”
