Former MMA fighter and actress Gina Carano has been fired from The Mandalorian by Disney.

The "Deadpool" actress has faced controversy in the recent past over her political views and inflammatory statements made on social media.

This time the straw that broke the camel's back was Gina Carano's anti-Semitic Instagram stories that were quickly taken down, but not before netizens grabbed a few screenshots.

"Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors...even by children."
"Because history is edited, most people today don't realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?"

How Gina Carano's social media presence drew ire from the community

The hashtag #FireGinaCarano began trending soon after her controversial Instagram story went live.

Gina Carano has a history of posting far-right views and has been a mask-denier, which is enough reason these days for people to call for her cancelation.

Another red flag from the American actress was the completely false claim that voter fraud had a part to play in the United States' 2020 election.

Calling for a change in the system with no evidence of foul play, Gina Carano put out the following tweet:

All of this and many more incidents piled up against the actress leading to Lucasfilm dropping the actress from the series. Not only that, but her talent agency UTA has also reportedly cut ties with the actress.

Netizens campaigning for her removal with the #FireGinaCarano hashtag were happy to see the news and took to Twitter to applaud Disney for the move.
