On November 14th, she posted an image that said: “Breaking News. Democratic government leaders now recommends we all wear blindfolds along with masks so we can’t see what’s really going on.”
The tweet suggested that the government are not enforcing mask-wearing to protect people from Covid-19, but are actually doing so as a method of control, alleging that Gina doesn’t support the wearing of masks.
Then, on November 15th, the posted another image that said: “In a world where everyone wears a mask i’s a privilege to see a soul.”
Many Twitter users instantly assumed that Gina has an anti-mask stance, and started calling her out for her opinions.
One Twitter user said: “Star Wars needs to kill off cara either this season or next season after gina carano made that anti-mask tweet.”
Another tweeted the Mandalorian producer directly and said: “@jonfavs – you really vouch for @ginacarano ? Her anti-mask and COVID-denial statements? Her saying that the election was rigged and Trump is the rightful winner? You wrote this character for her, knowing what kind of human she is?”
Gina’s opinions on mask-wearing really riled up a lot of Twitter users, and the hashtag #FireGinaCarano even started trending.
“Gina Carano is really one of those people who think that you shouldn’t wear a mask and that the government is taking away you freedom by telling you to stay home? love, it’s a f***ing pandemic. What a moron,” said another.
