Gina Carano Suing Disney and LucasFilm, Funded By Elon Musk/X

On February 6, 2024, Gina Carano initiated legal action against Disney and Lucasfilm, citing her dismissal from “The Mandalorian” in 2021. Carano’s termination came in the wake of her controversial social media activity, which included likening being Republican in present-day America to being Jewish during the Holocaust and ridiculing mask-wearing as a preventive measure against COVID-19 transmission.

Elon Musk is providing financial backing for the lawsuit. Last November, Disney withdrew advertisements from Musk’s X platform due to their placement alongside antisemitic content, coupled with Musk’s endorsement of an antisemitic conspiracy theory. Musk has since expressed dissatisfaction with the situation on multiple occasions, directing profanity-laden remarks toward Disney CEO Bob Iger and demanding Iger’s dismissal.

Joe Benarroch, head of business operations at X tweeted, “As a sign of X Corp.’s commitment to free speech, we’re proud to provide financial support for Gina Carano’s lawsuit, empowering her to seek vindication of her free speech rights on X and the ability to work without bullying, harassment, or discrimination.”


The lawsuit has been filed in the state of California seeking monetary damages and a return of Gina’s character “Cara Dune” to the Star Wars universe. Carano appeared in both seasons 1 and 2 of The Mandalorian now airing on Disney+.
