Lucasfilm announced on Wednesday that Gina Carano is no longer a member of The Mandalorian cast due to growing online backlash against her controversial social media behavior, including a post that compared Jewish people living in Nazi Germany to the current political climate in the United States, as reported by The Hollywood Reporter.
“Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…. even by children,” Carano’s post opened.
“Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?” she went on to write.
