Gina Carano is a full-throttle moron who spreads anti-mask conspiracies

World Premiere Of Disney's 'Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker'

We truly haven’t covered anything to do with Gina Carano in six years. Back then, people cared about her because she had transitioned from a serious career in MMA to a serious career in acting. She was also in the gossip blogs because of her on-and-off thing with Henry Cavill for a time. Cavill ended up dumping her so he could date some college student, remember that? Good times. Well, anyway, Carano is still around. She’s in The Mandalorian and… not a lot of other stuff these days. But everyone watches The Mandalorian, so people have a renewed interest in her, which has led to some catastrophes.

She made news a few months ago when she was making fun of the whole idea of telling people which pronouns you use – many people will put “she/her” or “he/him” in their social media bios, and Carano thinks that’s super-funny, that we would want to welcome transgender people into society by using their pronouns right off the bat. I didn’t cover that at the time but it was definitely a conversation happening, that Gina was transphobic and maybe Disney needed to fire her from The Mandalorian (they did not fire her).

Her latest controversy is that she’s basically a full-throttle Facebook dumbass who promotes dangerous anti-mask conspiracies:

Yeah. Dangerous assholery. I ended up looking through her Twitter – even though she’s trying to get people on Parler, which is apparently the new social media for fascists – and she’s problematic as they come. She’s retweeting conspiracies about the election and she’s f–king obsessed with the idea that lockdown measures in the middle of a massively deadly pandemic are somehow thwarting her FREEDUMB. I can’t with any of this. These people – Gina and all of these Covid-denying Trump supporters – are literally killing people with their dumbass conspiracies. Cancelled.

    This is really disappointing!

    • Esmom says:

      It’s beyond disappointing, it’s dangerous. I cannot believe how many stupid, uninformed people are screeching about their “rights” to not wear a mask into the grocery store while people are dropping like flies from this virus. She’s a celeb, people are watching her and she is making an already bad situation worse with her crap.

  2. Case says:

    She’s a complete idiot. If I were Disney I’d be trying to shut this crap down fast.

    It would be great if all the fascists moved to one social media platform and left the rest of us alone lol.

    • deezee says:

      I heard there is a new Facebook like platform for right wing nuts too. Mewe or Meew or something, I don’t know. But it does look like there is an effort to fuel their fires away from mainstream platforms.

      • cer says:

        Parler is Twitter-like and MeWe is FB like. MeWe didn’t start of as a conservative site though, their pitch was ‘we don’t sell info or ads’.

      • Esmom says:

        Oh, wow. I was in a meeting on Friday to talk about social media plans for my non-profit and someone brought up a new FB-like platform but didn’t specify which one. I got nervous she was talking about Parler. But I bet it was this one. Luckily everyone shut her down saying we were not going to try to expand to any new platforms. They should not be legitimized!

    • Oy_Hey says:

      Legit question – why hasn’t Disney stepped in and fired her? They don’t even have to say why if they’re cowards about it. I just don’t understand how she’s still on the show, especially given that the star, Pedro Pascal, Mando himself, is a giant ally and all-around cool person who is openly and loudly not about this kind of shit.

      • Heather H says:

        Agree, I cannot imagine Pedro wanting to get anywhere near her if this is her stance and personality.

      • Dutch says:

        The controversy was in September, principal filming for S2 of Mando ended on March. Depending on what happens to her character this season, there might not be a need to fire her. If her character gets killed off, her time there is done anyway.

      • Courtney B says:

        Pedro has been sidelined. He wanted to appear more sans helmet (for a variety of reasons) and the producers disagreed. He’s going to be doing a lot of voiceovers now. I don’t know if that was for season 2 or the upcoming one. I don’t watch just read it on a geek site. 🙂

      • Mia4s says:

        @Courtney B that Pedro rumour has been debunked by more credible sites. The “reporter” who started it has a very…questionable…history in starting stories about women and BIPOC. Always check your sources.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      I just went to Disney +, cancelling it and letting them know why (by email and tweet)

  3. Athyrmose says:

    Also racist. Her “likes” are pretty disturbing at times, as well.

  4. Mia4s says:

    She hasn’t been in any episodes yet this season and I have an ongoing theory that she gets killed off and that’s why she’s felt free to go full dumbass. That, or she has no honest agents or PR people to tell her how badly she’s blowing it career-wise. Enjoy working construction with Antonio Sabato Jr in Florida Gina!

    You know Star Wars has a long way to go with adding female characters and their treatment of female characters overall: but if they do kill her off and make Timothy Olyphant or whoever Mando’s new best friend? I’m pretty fine with it in this case! 😬

    • shanaynay says:

      I think you’re theory could be right. At least, I hope so.

    • BB8 Squirrel says:

      I agree with this theory! I also heard that her and Pedro Pascal had a huge falling out after she publicly mocked him for putting his pronouns on his Twitter. She’s doubling down because she doesn’t have a job to keep.

      • Teresa says:

        Oh how dare he shows he’s accepting of people’s gender! (sarcasm)
        Why the hell would someone being empathetic and understanding of others ever bother you?

      • Darla says:

        Oh this would be a big relief actually. I hope you’re right.

    • GreenBunny says:

      I don’t care about Star Wars and anything Star Wars adjacent, but I would be the world’s biggest fan if they bring back Space Raylen Givens. The world can’t handle the hotness of Pedro and Timothy as best buddies.

      • A says:

        This season could potentially have the outstanding trifecta of Pedro Pascal, Timothy Olyphant, AND (spoilers, sorry) Temuera Morrison, and I really really hope they get all three of them on the same screen at some point because. What could be better?

  5. lucy2 says:

    I haven’t watched that show yet, but Disney needs to step in here. She’s bringing very bad publicity to them.
    If she doesn’t think masks are necessary, she could volunteer at a hospital and see for herself.

  6. Wiglet Watcher says:

    This could be backlash by association for cavill

    • Case says:

      I feel pretty in the loop with celeb gossip and had NO idea they dated. Is this a well-known thing?

      • Mireille says:

        Yes, they dated…for like a hot minute. And then Cavill dumped her for a 19-year old college student and then he dumped the college student and hooked up with Carano again. That’s what I read anyway. There was even some gossip about casting her as Wonder Woman to his Superman in the Justice League movies.

      • Darla says:

        OMG thank god they didn’t cast her as Wonder Woman.

      • Korra says:

        No, they broke up before his relationship with the 19 year old. In fact, there was a 21 year old from Michigan he dated briefly that was between his relationship with Gina and the teen girlfriend.

  7. Seraphina says:

    At first I thought that was Teresa Giudice from RHONJ.

    • a reader says:

      Nailed it! THAT is who she reminds me of.

      They’ve certainly got matching wonky botox eyes….

      • Juniper says:

        Help. What are “botox eyes?” I tried googling it but all that came up are plastic surgeon ads.

  8. Mireille says:

    Don’t know why she gets cast in anything, she can’t act to save Baby Yoda’s life and NOW she’s a proven azzhole. Sorry, done with her.

    • smcollins says:

      Right? I love The Mandalorian and her character is a total badass, but she’s definitely not a good actress and now learning this about her…so disappointing.

  9. Mrs. Peel says:

    Don’t tell Lainey – she’s a super fan.

  10. jbyrdku says:

    I was somewhat surprised that she turned out to be a complete twat.

  11. Chaine says:

    I was a huge fan in her pro fighting days. Now just find her really disappointing.

  12. YAS says:

    This pandemic has shown that too many people in this country are fundamentally unserious people who cannot be trusted with any responsibility and self-governance. She is absolutely one of those people.

    • Courtney B says:

      Trump too. This type of behavior and statements likely would’ve been kept largely underground but people feel emboldened to just come right out and say it.

  13. AnnaKist says:

    What a bunch of utter dumbarses. Ordinarily, they would be harmless fools. I mean, I’m sure we all deal every day with people who have silly ideas, but these people are dangerous. And to further complicate things, stupid people don’t know they’re stupid. Dear Universe, please sort this shit out ASAP.

  14. Darla says:

    Ohhh, that’s where I knew the name from, Henry Cavil. Right. Wasn’t she beloved by internet commenters because she wasn’t cookie cutter skinny and all that happy stuff?

    Anyway, I’m really po’d about this because I was saving the mandaolorian for my Christmas break. Now I have to deal with this idiot’s face in it. I’m not too happy.

  15. ce says:

    I do not care about Gina or her poorly-written character. You know who’s great, and whose presence completely makes you forget they even wrote Gina into the series? Amy Sedaris!! I love her character and I love her as an actress/comedian. Me and my husband re-watched “strangers with candy” during quarantine and she is just brilliant. More Amy please!!

  16. Grant says:

    Man, I am so disappointed but can’t say that I am surprised. I love her character Cara Dunne on the Mandalorian so I started following her on IG. Because I’m a nosey freak, I looked to see who she followed and one of them was that awful pig Tomi Lahren. I knew right then all that I needed to know about her idiocy.

    • Juniper says:

      Same. Really liked her character on The Mandalorian and started following her on Instagram. She got strange and disappointing during the pandemic. I unfollowed her.

  17. ME says:

    Why do people hate actual science so much? Do these people not care about the health of others or themselves? Do these f*cking morons want this pandemic to last forever? I bet she won’t be taking the vaccine either ? I knew there were stupid people on this earth but it appears I was underestimating exactly how many of them there actually are !

  18. Valiantly Varnished says:

    She’s terrible. And after all these years I have to give Henry props for dumping her a$$.

  19. Ms. says:

    Damnit. I had a crush on her.

  20. TIffany says:

    And Pedro Pascal even got in contact with her to after the transphobic tweets and she not only announced that he did, she told him to eff off and doubled down on it.

    She did this to the lead of the series.

    You can tell me white privilege is not a helluva drug.

  21. says:

    Ugh! Good I hope she goes to Parler, and she can bathe in a sea of misinformation and lunacy!
    These Typhoid Mary types need to SIT DOWN. Maybe she can date Scott Baio. . .

  22. nemo says:

    “what is the most feminine thing about you?
    – uhhhhh, my boobs?”
    – Gina Carano, 2008.
    so yeah, her being an idiot isn’t new.

  23. Cg2495 says:

    She is an idiot

  24. HeyJude says:

    People who used to get hit in the head for a living aren’t the one’s I’m looking for for sense. See Gina, Chael Sonnen, Tito Ortiz, most everyone in that whole UFC orbit. Even outside the cage, like Rogan.

    They’re all very dim on basic common sense and ability to sniff obviously dumb conspiracies.

    Part of it’s the head trauma, part of it’s they’re all very macho, Chad dude-bros (even the woman like Gina, it’s a unisex type of personality even though those are the best words I can come up with to describe it) who’s sense of “alpha-ness” (the most important thing to them) is threatened by the tiniest little thing they can’t control or don’t understand.

  25. Dfan says:

    Gee whiz, what a surprise…a celebrity is ill-informed and dumb!

    But seriously, her acting was so wooden and terrible in the otherwise flawless Mandalorian. We audibly groaned every single time she showed up. Her voice is completely monotonous and she has absolutely no emotional range. I’m sure there are plenty of talented actors that can learn to do a fight scene/stunt people to help instead of hiring someone who can fight and sucks at acting.

    • Nightstky says:

      Did you see her in In the Blood? Her acting was so flat and amateurish. She was the only flaw in what I thought was an otherwise pretty decent movie.

  26. D says:

    To be fair, Cavill and Carano dated, then they weren’t together and the whole Kaley Cuoco debacle happened. Then he and Carano got back together supposedly. The nineteen-year-old didn’t come until later after he’d gone off the rails. But, that’s not the point, Gina’s hatred is, and it’s vile.

  27. lise says:

    i understand that it’s bad and i dont support the dangerous anti mask maga bullshit

    but i wouldnt hate it if she bench pressed me

  28. Korra says:

    You forgot to mention her anti-BLM posts. She is racist too.

  29. Nightstky says:

    This powerful woman has a voice and could be promoting covid caution, proper safety practices, responsible behavior… and exhibiting genuine respect and caring for her fellow humans… yet she chooses to use that voice to spread dangerous misinformation and stoopidity. Very disappointing. Yep, cancelled. And by the way, I love FREEDUMB sooo much! Thank you… stealing 😀
