‘The Mandalorian’ star Gina Carano has caused a full-blown Twitter meltdown after sharing a meme claiming that the Democratic Party is trying to swindle Americans, causing #FireGinaCarano to trend on the platform.
The image, which shows two men placing face masks over their eyes, reads: “Democratic government leaders now recommends (sic) we all wear blindfolds along with masks so we can’t see what’s really going on.”

The outspoken MMA-fighter-turned-actress has been in the crosshairs of the PC police for days after publicly doubting the integrity of the 2020 election results. But the meme in question appears to have been the last straw for many internet guardians of righteousness, and by Saturday night #FireGinaCarano was trending in the United States.
Dozens of armchair warriors rehashed their old grievances with the actress, recycling claims that she was “transphobic” because she listed “boop/bop/beep” as her “pronouns” in her Twitter bio. Many others accused her of racism for liking tweets from conservative pundits.
Disney fired James Gunn because of bad jokes on Twitter dug up by a rapist, but Gina Carano is regularly tweeting out transphobic hate. Disney, #FireGinaCarano

Gina Carano actively promotes hateful, bigoted views, has tweeted misinformation +conspiracies about the American election, doesn't support wearing masks/treats COVID like a hoax, liked tweets about shooting protesters… this woman is not part of the Rebellion #FireGinaCarano pic.twitter.com/4u52pqI3vo

Others stopped short of calling for her to lose her job but still said that Carano was being “irresponsible” by sharing her political views.
Not everyone was critical of the actress, however. Numerous Twitter users argued that the vitriolic comments and hashtags were unwarranted.
I hate women and so on, but apparently, if you stand up for Donald Trump or against this stupid and insane lockdown hoax, you stop being a woman. You certainly lose all of your female privileges.
It’s a great thing that we have people from pop culture coming out and standing with the people. She’s definitely going to be blacklisted forever for this, so it’s awesome she doesn’t care.
