Fans Call Out Lucasfilm Hypocrisy After Pedro Pascal Retains Employment
By Movieguide® Staff
Lucasfilm cut ties with one star of THE MANDALORIAN while retaining another, even though both made similar comments about the politically charged atmosphere.
The company announced last week that they no longer “employed” Gina Corano after some of her social media posts compared pre-Holocaust Germany to much of American society today. The rabid left demanded the series cancel conservative Corano, and she lost her job.
Meanwhile, THE MANDALORIAN star Pedro Pascal made a similar analogy.
Pascal, 45, recently posted a picture to his Instagram that compared Donald Trump supporters to Nazis. Pascal received no consequences for the comparison but eventually took the post down.
“Pedro Pascal, who plays the Mandalorian on Disney Plus, was not fired for this post on Instagram comparing Trump supporters to Nazis and Confederates,” one fan tweeted.

“A tale of 2 galaxies #PedroPascal #GinaCarano no need to #CancelDisneyPlus,” wrote another.

Disney’s hypocritical treatment of its MANDALORIAN co-stars is a clear example of how cancel culture is a direct attack on freedom of speech. Although dropped from Star Wars for the foreseeable future, Carano has already announced a new project with The Daily Wire.
Movieguide® previously reported:
Disney reportedly fired THE MANDALORIAN star Gina Carano after the actress received backlash from a social media post that compared America’s political divide to how the Nazi party came to power in Germany.
‘Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children. 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?’ read the post, which Carano had posted to her Instagram.
Disney announced that Carano was no longer “employed by” the company after fans took to Twitter with “#FireGinaCarano.”
Additionally, Lucasfilm’s statement said that “there are no plans for” the rehiring of Carano and that “her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”
Somehow in cancel culture’s mind, it’s acceptable to destroy someone you disagree with but ignore and/or praise someone you agree with for doing that very same thing.
When will people learn that if we “cancel” everyone who believes differently, we will ultimately cancel our freedoms.
