Gina Carano's fan base has labeled the star "uncancelled" after the actor revealed she's been picked up for a new movie role.
And now thousands have signed a petition to reinstate the controversial star...
The news comes after Lucasfilm announced Carano would no longer be working with them...
Following the shocking posts she shared to social media.
Even though many were happy about the news...
Others were not.
And they weren't afraid to show it.
With an unlikely petition taking off ...
Now, you may know Carano for many things, as she had a pretty accomplished career.
Her talents started out in mixed martial arts (MMA) and fitness before she made the move into the world of acting.
And since then, she's had parts in some major blockbusters...
Including Fast and Furious 6, Deadpool, and Haywire.
But her most notable role was from The Mandalorian.
Her fame skyrocketed when she took on the role of Cara Dune.
When it first hit screens, The Mandalorian completely won over viewers.
The original sci-fi spin-off series, set in the Star Wars universe, drew in significant praise from fans.
The series is set 5 years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
via: imdbDirected by Bryce Dallas Howard, best known for playing Claire Dearing in Jurassic World, The Mandalorian offers Star Wars fans a tantalizing new live-action spin-off of the beloved franchise.
And it was the first of its kind on the Disney +.
via: imdbThe Mandolorian well and truly keeps the franchise alive - offering what many are describing as a "gritter" take on the universe.
The show chronicles the story of a galactic bounty hunter, Dyn Jarren.
via: imdbBoasting an impressive cast including the likes of Narcos' Pedro Pascal in the leading role, viewers watch as Dyn attempts to survive in the aftermath of the Empire’s collapse.
However, that success might have been tarnished by Gina Carano's latest antics.
Things have gotten pretty heated on social media lately, given the fact actress was posting some pretty controversial stuff on her profiles.
Calls for her to be fired started pretty early on.
She didn't set herself up well when she shared conspiracy-focused memes and tweets from her account.
Not only that, but she also liked posts disparaging Black Lives Matter...
We need to clean up the election process so we are not left feeling the way we do today.— Gina Carano 🕯 (@ginacarano) November 5, 2020
Put laws in place that protect us against voter fraud.
Investigate every state.
Film the counting.
Flush out the fake votes.
Make Voter Fraud end in 2020.
Fix the system. 🇺🇸
And the use of the correct pronouns.
And it didn't stop there...
From ridiculing mask mandates, to emphasizing (without hard proof) that there was "voter fraud" going on at the elections, Carano really managed to ruffle more than a few feathers.
Her latest stunt on Instagram also saw her comparing being a republican to being a "Jew during the Holocaust..."
Problematic isn't even the word for disgusting comparisons such as this one.
Things have gotten so bad that a spokesperson for Lucasfilm spoke out to let people know that the actress is no longer employed by them.
Things have gone from bad to worse for the actress.
In a statement obtained by io9, a spokesperson outlined their company's views on the matter, saying this:
"Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future."
"Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable."
But now, Carano has hit back, revealing she's signed a new movie deal...
And people have very mixed views...
Yeah, it really sucks when the 'masses' believe in fairness and equality.— Myrtle AP (@myrtle_ap) February 12, 2021
It's a shame you had to twist a business decision made by an employer so far out of line that the only part resembling truth is that she won't be on the show any more.— Mike Sørensen (@BadWolf_Media) February 12, 2021

She's joined the empire. How sad.— EmperorGrinnar (@EmperorGrinnar) February 12, 2021

I wouldn't call a daily wire film uncancelled. That's one step up from college film.— Don Blake (@HardHab1t2break) February 13, 2021
You could maybe show remorse and humility instead of self importance and ignorance. You posted shitty stuff and got fired for it. The first amendment protects your right to say whatever you want, but it also protects how others respond to it.— Starz (@Alanstarzinski) February 12, 2021
We do not. You may have a seat— Brian Dunkirk (@BrianDunkirk) February 14, 2021
Cant wait for this straight to the Walmart $5 movie bin masterpiece! Hollywood must be shatting themselves right now...jfc— Ian Fapoport (@RealHandsome13) February 12, 2021
Carano has now revealed that she signed up with Ben Shapiro's media outlet The Daily Wire.
This is just the beginning.. welcome to the rebellion. https://t.co/5lDdKNBOu6— Gina Carano 🕯 (@ginacarano) February 12, 2021
Carano said: "The Daily Wire is helping make one of my dreams - to develop and produce my own film - come true.
"I cried out and my prayer was answered. I am sending out a direct message of hope to everyone living in fear of cancellation by the totalitarian mob.
"I have only just begun using my voice, which is now freer than ever before, and I hope it inspires others to do the same."
She added: "They can't cancel us if we don't let them."
According to reports, Carano will both produce and star in the film, which will only be available to the site's members.
Daily Wire will also partner up with producer Dallas Sonnier for the movie.
Shapiro, a right-wing political commentator, said he was thrilled with getting Carano on board.
He said: "We could not be more excited to be working with Gina Carano, an incredible talent dumped by Disney and Lucasfilm for offending the authoritarian Hollywood Left."
"This is what Daily Wire exists to do: provide an alternative not just for consumers, but for creators who refuse to bow to the mob.
"We're eager to bring Gina's talent to Americans who love her, and we're just as eager to show Hollywood that if they want to keep canceling those who think differently, they'll just be helping us build the Xwing to take down their Death Star."
And now a petition has launched.
With over 15,000 signatures at the time of writing.
It seems as though there are many who haven't been put off by Carano's vile comments ...
