#CancelDisneyPlus is now trending on Twitter following the news that Lucasfilm opted to fire Gina Carano from The Mandalorian. You can go over to Twitter right now and see the hashtag #CancelDisneyPlus trending and it seems as though people are really upset with Lucasfilm and Disney for having fired Gina Carano from the Star Wars live-action show.
People are not happy with Lucasfilm and Disney for firing Gina Carano. This all happened after the actress shared a series of posts on her social media accounts. Here’s what a spokesperson from Lucasfilm had to say about Gina Carano no longer being employed by Lucasfilm: “Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future. Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Now, I’m not sure that people are really going to cancel their Disney Plus subscription due to Gina Carano being fired from The Mandalorian. There are so many other shows that are coming to Disney Plus such as The Falcon And The Winter Soldier and The Book Of Boba Fett to name a few.
That said, this does show that people really feel strongly about Gina Carano having been fired. Unfortunately, I don’t believe Disney and Lucasfilm had any other choice really other than to fire her after her comments on social media.
