Jon Favreau supports Gina Carano
Gina Carano, Disney+ ‘Star Wars’ spinoff series ‘The Mandalorian” star is once again under the spotlight. The social media population is in the uproar once again bringing up the #FireGinaCarano hashtag on Twitter.
‘The Mandalorian’ star who plays the character of ex-mercenary and the current Nevarro New Republic Marshal Cara Dune, has been receiving a lot of criticism and backlash throughout the premiere of Season 2. But even after all the hate, she has managed to keep her position in the show and in her public life without anything major affecting her career.
Jon Favreau, the show’s creator plays an important role in Gina Carano emerging harmless even after all the backlash. According to an insider source from Pirates and Princess, Jon Favreau was never publicly political and doesn’t care about others’ political beliefs or stand, which includes Gina Carano’s controversial beliefs.
According to insidethemagic.net, Author WDW Pro writes, “I’m told that the feeling inside Lucasfilm is generally disdain for Carano as well. The problem for all of those who hate Carano based on her worldview and political positions is that Jon Favreau isn’t publicly political… and word on the street is he doesn’t care one iota for the divisiveness. If Carano was employed in any other part of Lucasfilm, she’d be gone, and she would have been let go long ago.”
However Disney has not confirmed this statement yet.
Apart from Jon Favreau, Gina Carano has also received a lot of support from other fans and cast members amidst the backlash. Pedro Pascal ( who plays Din Djarin in the show) and Katee Sackhoff ( who plays the character of Bo-Katan Kryze) have openly shown support to the Cara Dune actress.
The Gina Carano Controversy
Gina Carano was previously in the spotlight for voicing her opinions about the 2020 US Elections and posting anti-mask tweets. Her comments were also seen as transphobic and lacking any basis for her claims about the voter fraud.
This led to some people calling her out and asking her to be fired from the cast of ‘The Mandalorian’. Gina Carano, although didn’t directly address any of the controversies in a new interview, she did claim that she “brings the fire out in people,” according to reports from NME.
“I’m going to stick around and if my presence bothers you, OK, but also a lot of people are not bothered by my Twitter presence or my social media presence. So I focus more on those people. I bring the fire out in people. I’m not sure why,” she told Drunk 3PO YouTube page, according to NME.
