Lucasfilm fired Carano Wednesday, calling the social media posts she made that day “abhorrent.”
Carano was also dropped by United Talent Agency on Wednesday, Variety reported.
CNN has reached out to Lucasfilm and United Talent Agency and is waiting to hear back.
The posts invoked Nazi Germany and made fun of masks
“How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” part of the post read, according to Variety.
She later deleted that story and another that appeared to poke fun at mask-wearing with an image of a person whose entire head was covered with masks, captioned “Meanwhile in California.”
She didn’t delete every story she shared Wednesday, including one that repeated the conspiracy that convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein didn’t die by suicide.
Carano courted controversy in fall of 2020 when she refused fans’ requests to put her pronouns in her Twitter bio as a show of support for transgender people. Instead, she wrote “beep/bop/boop” in her bio, which to fans appeared to mock trans people.
Variety reported that she later removed the words from her Twitter bio after speaking to her co-star Pedro Pascal, who she said “helped (her) understand why people were putting them in their bios.” She then said she supports “freedom to choose.”
Her character’s future is unknown
Lucasfilm didn’t address whether Carano’s role of Cara Dune would be recast in “The Mandalorian.” The character played a supporting role in the series as an ally to Pascal’s protagonist and a friend to Grogu, also known as “Baby Yoda.”
Cara Dune was expected to appear in the upcoming Disney+ series, “The Rangers of the New Republic.” But with Carano axed from the Star Wars universe, the character’s future remains unknown.
