Can Disney Fire Gina Carano From The Mandalorian for Being Depressingly Normal?

Gina Carano's political views are upsetting and ignorant, but they are not unusual.

Update 2/11/2021: Lucasfilm announced this morning that "Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," adding that her recent social media posts were "abhorrent and unacceptable."

Reports have suggested that plans for Carano to have her own series spin-off from the Mandalorian were scrapped in November following previous controversial posts. Carano has also reportedly been dropped as a client by United Talent Agency.
