Gina Carano, widely recognized for her role as Cara Dune in the acclaimed series 'The Mandalorian', has filed a lawsuit against Disney over her termination from the show, claiming discrimination and wrongful dismissal.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Carano's legal team filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court Central District of California today. The complaint alleges that her termination stemmed from expressing her personal viewpoints on various social media platforms and other outlets.

Disney's decision to remove Carano from 'The Mandalorian' came after she posted content on social media that the company deemed "abhorrent and unacceptable", particularly comments perceived to denigrate individuals based on their cultural and religious backgrounds.

One such instance involved an Instagram post where Carano referenced historical events, stating, "Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors ... even by children," as reported by Variety.

In addition, Carano disclosed via a statement on X/Twitter that entrepreneur Elon Musk is providing financial backing for her legal battle.

The lawsuit, as detailed by The Hollywood Reporter, seeks "a court order compelling Lucasfilm to recast her role and damages totaling at least $75,000, along with punitive damages."

This move by Carano, supported by Musk, follows previous tensions between Musk and Disney, particularly related to advertising disputes. Musk vocally criticized Disney and other advertisers in November, vehemently rejecting attempts at coercion through financial means.
