I can’t imagine a bigger backfire in recent history and sincerely look forward to Gina’s new found career. Cancel Disney Plus.
Saturday Night Live got in on the Gina Carano controversy this weekend, taking aim at the former star of The Mandalorian‘s firing from Lucasfilm in the show’s cold open. Best known for playing Cara Dune on the Star Wars series, Carano was let go earlier this month from her role on the series following months of controversial social media posts. A statement released by Lucasfilm at the time labeled Carano’s online behavior as “abhorrent.”
Given how much attention has been on the Carano controversy lately, it was just a matter of time before the story made its way to Saturday Night Live. The newest episode, hosted by Bridgerton star Rege-Jean Page, began with a cold open presented in the format of a new talk show launched by Britney Spears. The concept of the fictional show, dubbed “Oops You Did It Again,” is for celebrities to publicly apologize for things they’ve done wrong.
