Gina Carano was fired from season 3 of the Disney+ “Star Wars” show “The Mandalorian” after posting a series of controversial tweets.
The firing also led to the cancellation of “Rangers of the New Republic,” in which her character, Cara Dune, was set to star.
In a recent question and answer session, KISS co-lead singer Gene Simmons outed himself as a “Star Wars” fan and called “The Mandalorian” “one of the best shows on television.”
He added that the show could have kept Carano in the cast despite her political views. He later described cancel culture as “dangerous.”
There is online speculation that Carano might make a return to season 4, which is rumored to be the last season of “The Mandalorian” as spin-off shows continue to make their debut.
Carano has continued to post her views on social media, this time taking aim at vaccines. Twitter marked a recent tweet claiming the people die from taking the vaccine as “misleading” and disabled the post from being liked or shared.
“The Mandalorian” co-star Giancarlo Esposito (Moff Gideon) shared his thoughts on vaccines in a recent interview, saying that unvaccinated co-workers should stay away from movie and television sets.
In the interview, Esposito said “the vaccine is the answer” and encouraged people who are unvaccinated to “go ride it out somewhere where you’re not going to compromise anyone else if you get it.”
Season 3 of “The Mandalorian” is set to stream sometime in 2022. Its sister series, “The Book of Boba Fett” will debut its first season on December 29, 2021.
