There may have been a time when Twitter wasn’t a cesspool for the worst sides of humanity to show their true colors, but those days have long since passed. If people don’t like something, they’ll try and burn it to the ground and convince as many folks as possible to strike a match alongside them.
If a decision goes one way, you can guarantee in no time at all that there’s going to be a baying mob trying to justify the other side of the argument. This is something we’ve all seen happen on countless occasions before in regards to celebrities, politics, sports, film, television and plenty more, and now that Gina Carano has been fired from The Mandalorian, her supporters have started calling for the head of Pedro Pascal.
Disney has been accused of double standards following the firing of Gina Carano after it emerged Mandalorian co-star Pedro Pascal compared ICE administration centers to Nazi concentration camps.
The company on Wednesday announced it had fired conservative actress Carano over an Instagram post that likened the murder of Jews during the Holocaust to the current U.S. political climate. Lucasfilm called the post ‘abhorrent and unacceptable’.
But it has since emerged that in 2018 actor Pascal shared an image of Germany 1944 and what he said was America 2018. He wrote: ‘#ThisisAmerica.’
You can check out just some of the reactions below.
@Disney doesn’t like strong women. #HireGinaCarano or #FirePedroPascal people want equality well time to prove it @Disney. @Disney doesn’t like people having different opinions. @Disney is fascist, racist and sexism.

#FirePedroPascal He basically made the same comparison as Gina Carrano. The double standard and hypocrisy is mind blowing. I loved Grogu but I’m done with Disney.

@ginacarano was fired for comparing America to Nazi Germany, yet @PedroPascal1 keeps his job after a similar comparison three years ago (even though the image he uses is neither in America nor from 2018). #FirePedroPascal #StandWithGinaCarano https://t.co/T8AHNGkQfP

Pedro Pascal criticized Obama’s immigration policies and shared a meme comparing immigrant children in cages to Jewish children in concentration camps, but nobody ever demanded he was fired. In order to be consistent, how about we switch #FireGinaCarano to #FirePedroPascal ?

Clearly, this is not going to blow over anytime soon, and it would appear that Gina Carano vs. Disney could be the new Johnny Depp vs. Amber Heard, online at least. All we know for sure, though, is that Cara Dune will not be back when The Mandalorian returns to our screens.
