In an interview with former New York Times writer Bari Weiss' Substack, Carano says she learned of last week's firing from Lucasfilm from social media. Carano also revealed that Lucasfilm asked her to release a company-written apology statement after her transgender pronoun controversy last fall. “Earlier on last year before The Mandalorian came out, they wanted me to use their exact wording for an apology over pronoun usage,” Carano said, according to Indiewire. “I declined and offered a statement in my own words. I made clear I wanted nothing to do with mocking the transgender community, and was just drawing attention to the abuse of the mob in forcing people to put pronouns in their bio.” She says her refusal resulted in her being yanked from Season 2 press. “That was heartbreaking, but I didn’t want to take away from the hard work of everyone who worked on the project, so I said ok,” Carano added. “That was the last time I was contacted about any type of public statement or apology from Lucasfilm. I found out through social media, like everyone else, that I had been fired.” ALSO: Hasbro confirms it has scrapped Carano's Cara Dune Star Wars action figure.
