Hasbro reportedly cancels Gina Carano’s action figure

(Carano’s Cara Dune is no more)

In the wake of former Mandalorian cast member Gina Carano’s controversial social media posts, Hasbro has now allegedly cancelled production of her ‘Cara Dune’ action figure

Carano was fired last Wednesday, Feb. 10 after sharing a post comparing being Republican today to being Jewish during Nazi Germany.

“Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future,” a spokesperson for Lucasfilm said in a statement. “Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable.”

Now, Twitter user @TheComixKid shared an email they received from BigBadToyStore about the status of the ‘Cara Dune‘ action figures:

“We have been informed by Hasbro that they have canceled production of the Star Wars: The Black Series 6” Cara Dune (The Mandalorian) and will not be fulfilling our order. Unfortunately, this means we must cancel our pre-orders for this item. We apologize for the inconvenience and greatly appreciate your understanding.”
