So, I’m pretty sure you all heard that Gina Carano was fired by Lucasfilm from The Mandalorian. I won’t go into why she was fired. I’m sure you all know the story by now. However, this story hasn’t ended here. People have no just realized that she used to date Henry Cavill back in 2013, and some of these people are now trying to cancel the British actor for it.
This is so strange to me, and I’ve posted just a few of the tweets below in which people complain about Cavill having dated Gina Carano. Honestly, I think this is so stupid and people go to ridiculous extremes. I think we all just need to chill a bit.

Brandon Routh, Cameron Cuffe, Melissa Benoist, and Laura Vandervoort – stars from four separate adaptations of Superman – welcome Sasha Calle into the role as Supergirl.

The other reason people are trying to cancel Henry Cavill is because he didn’t say anything on Twitter about Sasha Calle being cast as Supergirl. First off, Cavill doesn’t have Twitter. Secondly, why should he post something on social media about it? I don’t really get it.
Yes, Brandon Routh, Cameron Cuff and Melissa Benoist all posted a ‘welcome to the DC Comics family’ sort of post after it was revealed that Calle was cast in The Flash movie. However, does that mean Henry should also post something? I didn’t see Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Ezra Miller or Ray Fisher post anything… And they didn’t have to.
