Former The Mandalorian star Gina Carano is also seeing the toy version of herself canceled, as Hasbro has announced they are discontinuing their Cara Dune action figures, which is the character Carano portrayed in the Star Wars universe.
“We have been informed by Hasbro that they have canceled production of the Star Wars: The Black Series 6” Cara Dune (The Mandalorian) and will not be fulfilling our order. Unfortunately, this means we must cancel our pre-orders for this item. We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your understanding,” Hasbro said in a letter to retailers.

Carano — who was in line to lead her own Star Wars series just a few short months ago — was fired by Lucasfilm last week when she posted to social media making a comparison between being a Republican in the 2021 United States to being a Jewish person in 1930s Nazi Germany. In a statement, a rep for Lucasfilm categorized her comments as “unacceptable and abhorrent”. In addition to being fired by Lucasfilm, Carano’s agency UTA also dropped her.
“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a Lucasfilm representative said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
The Nazi Germany comparison was far from Carano’s first grievance, as she previously shared posts that mocked wearing masks during the pandemic, making fun of people who share their pronouns on their social media pages, and has also claimed that unproven voter fraud affected the results of the 2020 Presidential Election.
Carano is not totally out of work, though, as she recently inked what is sure to be a super-successful production deal with Ben Shapiro’s The Daily Caller.
This is just the beginning.. welcome to the rebellion. https://t.co/5lDdKNBOu6
