Gina Carano fired from The Mandalorian after offensive Instagram posts

It appears as though Lucasfilm has given actor and former mixed martial artist, Gina Carano, the boot after a series of offensive Instagram posts.

Gina Carano is "not currently employed by Lucasfilm," the company said in a statement Wednesday after controversy erupted over "The Mandalorian" star's social-media posts.

"Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," a Lucasfilm spokesperson said in a statement. "Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable."
