Mandalorian breakout star Gina Carano is coming under fire – and this time she isn’t dodging Klatooinian raiders.

Twitter is in an uproar over tweets the Star Wars actor that “mocked” personal pronouns, accused a transgender “mob” of “bullying” her, and embraced coronavirus conspiracy theories that wearing a mask can make you sick.

Carano portrays former Alliance shock trooper Cara Dune in the hit series, playing opposite of actor Pedro Pascal’s Mandalorian bounty hunter. Activists are calling on Disney to fire her.

Carano changed her Twitter profile to include “boop/bop/beep” and was promptly accused of “mocking trans people” by activists.

Carano later tweeted that she had spoken to Pascal and he explained why people were adding pronouns to their profiles but insisted she would not be participating. In the end, she implied that she was being bullied into putting the pronouns on her profile, a theme she later followed up on.

Within hours, blame had quickly shifted to the “abusive” transgender “mob” that has been “bullying” her instead of Carano’s actions. She was simply misunderstood, she said, and the uproar was spawned by activists demanding perfection and conformity.

Carano ran through a list of names she had been called by other users, implying that transgender people were responsible.

The more Carano defended her actions, the louder the call for Disney to cut ties with the actor.

Carano also recently made waves when she tweeted about a debunked conspiracy theory that wearing a mask to prevent the spread of coronavirus can make you sick. As experts have pointed out, medical professionals, first responders, and construction workers wear masks for hours every day without any side effects.
