As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, she shared a post on Instagram appearing to compare the treatment of Jewish during the Holocaust to Republicans in the present day.

THR also reports that she has been dropped by her agents UTA.

Last year, Carano also shared unsubstantiated claims of vote fraud in the US Presidential election.

Gina Carano played Cara Dune in The Mandalorian, a former Rebel shock trooper turned mercenary who befriends Din Djarin and helps him look after The Child.

Carano originally found fame as an MMA fighter, competing in Strikeforce, and is considered a pioneer of women's MMA. She moved into acting after she caught the attention of director Steven Soderbergh, who cast her in the lead of the 2011 action movie Haywire, alongside Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, and Channing Tatum. She then went on to have supporting roles in blockbusters like Deadpool and Fast & Furious 6.
