Ex-Star Wars actor Gina Carano wants courts to force Lucasfilm to give her job back using Elon Musk’s money, praises Twitter as ‘one of the last glimmers of hope for free speech in the world’

Gina Carano, who used to play Cara Dune in Disney’s The Mandalorian before being dropped by the show following “abhorrent and unacceptable” posts on social media, is taking Disney subsidiary Lucasfilm to court to get her job back, and (via Kotaku) Elon Musk is funding the suit.

Carano was dropped from The Mandalorian in 2021, following a long career of inflammatory right-wing posts on social networking sites, which eventually culminated in a now-deleted Instagram story comparing the treatment of American conservatives to the persecution of Jewish people by Nazi Germany, and which included a photograph of the 1941 Lviv pogroms. Carano quickly became Hollywood persona non grata, and her career since has consisted of roles in low-budget, conservative media-funded movies like Terror on the Prairie and My Son Hunter.
