While we learned yesterday that Gina Carano has officially been fired from the series The Mandalorian by Lucasfilm, today another actor is in turmoil. Fans now want the dismissal of Pedro Pascal following a controversial tweet.
Gina Carano has been singled out by many fans in recent weeks because of her many controversial tweets. She was in the hot seat at Lucasfilm, but she continued to share nauseating ideas on social networks, which earned him his official dismissal yesterday. For several weeks, many have been calling for his dismissal, some are rejoicing today, others have decided to go after another actor in the series. Indeed it is now Pedro Pascal’s turn to be in turmoil. The actor who has just been chosen to play Joel in the television adaptation of The Last of Us, is in turn singled out for a controversial tweet. In June 2018, Pedro Pascal had shared a tweet where he compared the United States with a concentration camp during the Holocaust.
Since the sanction of Gina Carano who is pro Republicans, supporters of Donald Trump echoed Pedro Pascal’s tweet saying that Pedro Pascal must be fired too. Donald Trump’s son got involved and in turn wonders if Disney just discriminates against actresses who do the same things as actors or if it’s just discrimination against conservatives.

“Disney + should immediately fire all actors who make comparisons to the Holocaust.”
Same Movie as @ginacarano, same analogy, though the pic has the wrong date… I’m told it was 2010 under Obama/Biden.February 11, 2021
“Same movie as Gina Carano, same analogy, I think the photo has the wrong date. I’m saying it was 2010 under Obama / Biden. So Disney just discriminates against women who do the same things as do the actors or is it just discrimination against the conservatives? “
These outings from journalist Ben Shapiro and Donald Trump Jr. prompted many conservatives to launch the hashtag #FirePedroPascal who consider that the actor should be fired even if the tweet is more than 3 years old.
I mean, if Disney is gonna fire Gina Carano for posts comparing political hate speech to Nazi Germany, they should also fire Pedro Pascal for targeted harassment against Senator Ted Cruz. Just sayingud83eudd37u2642ufe0fFebruary 11, 2021
“I think if Disney fires Gina Carano for posts that compare American politics to Nazi Germany, they should also fire Pedro Pascal for making comments against Senator Ted Cruz.”
“Interestingly, Disney didn’t fire Pedro Pascal when he made a comparison between American politics and Nazi Germany.”

“Disney should also fire Pedro Pascal as Gina Carano, because he compares the plight of Jews during Nazi Germany and the political system in America.”
“So Lucasfilm and Disney fired an actress for a comparison with Nazi Germany, but Pedro Pascal did the same and he’s still employed.”

Pedro Pascal criticized Obama’s immigration policies and shared a meme comparing immigrant children in cages to Jewish children in concentration camps, but nobody ever demanded he was fired. In order to be consistent, how about we switch #FireGinaCarano to #FirePedroPascal ?February 11, 2021
Pedro Pascal criticized Obama’s immigration policy and shared a same one that compared immigrant children in cages and Jewish children in concentration camps, but no one ever asked to be fired. To be consistent, we would have to go from firing Gina Carano to firing Pedro Pascal. ”
As a jewish person born in germany What Pedro Pascal posted comparing concertation camps to immigration camps is more offending to me than what Gina Carano saidFebruary 11, 2021
“As a German-born Jew, what Pedro Pascal posted comparing concentration camps to immigration camps is more offensive than Gina Carano said.”
For the moment, Disney and Lucasfilm have not reacted to this new controversy, but it will be interesting to see the decision they make after firing Gina Carano. IIt is possible that Disney will not rush to not make an uproar like it had been the case with James Gunn, who had been fired from Marvel Studios following old tweets that had resurfaced, then reinstated a few months later under pressure from fans.
