The former mixed martial arts fighter portrays Cara Dune on the Disney+ Star Wars series, but she hasn't been winning fans on social media after sharing her stance on COVID-19 protective measures and the U.S. presidential election.
Carano took to Twitter over the weekend, November 13-15, to share an image of two people purposely putting face masks over their eyes.
"BREAKING NEWS: DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT LEADERS NOW RECOMMENDS (sic) WE ALL WEAR BLINDFOLDS ALONG WITH MASKS SO WE CAN'T SEE WHAT'S REALLY GOING ON," the meme caption read.
The posting prompted the launch of the #FireGinaCarano hashtag as several social media users expressed outrage.
"Woah, Gina this is extremely irresponsible. If you are referring to the election, there is no proof of any fraud," one user rebuffed Carano's tweet. "If you are referring to mask wearing, we should be doing that and if we all did it we would be able to go outside sooner."
Another slammed the wrestler-turned-actress, "She's spread bats**t conspiracy theories about covid, spread bats**t conspiracy theories about election fraud... She no longer gets the benefit of the doubt."
"On a serious note, Disney needs to f**king do something about this. Gina Carano needs to walk away from 'The Mandalorian'. There's no place for people like her in the Star Wars community," another critic added.
Bosses at Disney+ have yet to comment on the controversy.
