MMA fighter turned-actress Gina Carano once looked set to have a bright future as part of the Star Wars franchise. Cast as Cara Dune in The Mandalorian, she soon became a recurring presence in the Disney+ series and plans were put in place for the Rebel hero to take centre stage in a now-cancelled spin-off titled Rangers of the New Republic

In 2021, Carano started stirring up a lot of controversy on social media after sharing her thoughts on the pandemic, the 2020 election, and views many deemed transphobic and antisemitic.

As a result, she was fired from the series, and essentially blacklisted in Hollywood. These days, Carano primarily stars in movies made for The Daily Wire, an American conservative news outlet, with the latest effort - Terror on the Prairie - making only $804 (yes, you read that correctly) at the North American box office. 

When The Hollywood Reporter's Richard Newby mocked how badly the actress "[fumbled] the bag" by missing out on "her own Star Wars series, toys, books, comics, [and] apparel," Carano quickly went on the offensive. 

Accusing the writer of harassing her, the former Cara Dune suggested her dismissal from The Mandalorian came as a result of her not "[going] along with the sell-out narrative," blaming "the online mob" for petitioning to get her fired. She goes on to once again share her views about the media, though we won't delve into her political leanings here.

Lucasfilm isn't expected to recast Cara Dune, and we still haven't had any explanation for her disappearance. Whether she'll receive a passing mention in The Mandalorian season 3 remains to be seen, but it's possible the character will be forgotten and remembered as little more than just another ally Din Djarin and Grogu crossed paths with along the way. 

The Mandalorian returns to Disney+ on March 1.

Daily Wire is where the talentless clowns with garbage politics go to cash in on their persecution complex

This Richard Newby is seriously uniformed and probably just a plain old slime ball. As Gina Carano pointed out this movie was NOT released in theaters. The $804 probably came from some one time private screening. The revenue it generated was the $14 bucks a month that millions of new Daily Wire subscribers paid for at least 12 months when the news was posted that they would be casting Gina Carano in a movie. Pretty much every new subscriber had previous been a Disney Plus subscriber and canceled that service. See how their stock has tanked since March of 2021? Could not happen to better people.

She's also been blocking people who've never even interacted with her on Twitter. Clearly she has too much time on her hands.

Pretty sad career trajectory though, lead actress in a Steven Soderbergh movie to female secret service agent who gets groped by Biden in a shitty right-wing straight to streamer train wreck.

All of this grief over people playing make believe. If you want to believe your a woman or a man fine but don't force others to role play. Shame she got punished because people are trying to force their religion on others.

Maybe she can use her portion of that $804 to take some empathy classes.
