'The Mandalorian' star Gina Carano is being called out for her transphobic Twitter presence. Here's everything you need to know.

Is ‘The Mandalorian’ star Gina Carano transphobic?

Our ever-evolving society is striving to become inclusive in every way possible. With the increased effort to try to understand others, many are becoming educated on different communities – especially the LGBTQ community. Unfortunately, The Mandalorian star Gina Carano didn’t get this message and is being called out for her transphobic Twitter presence. 

Is Gina Carano a robot?

Carano was asked by Twitter users to add her pronouns to her Twitter bio, a common thing to add among transgender & cisgender social media users to help avoid misgendering. Instead, Carano mocked the usage of pronouns and added “boop/bop/beep” to her twitter bio. Looks like Carano is the only one who thought it was funny as many became enraged with her poorly conceived joke. 

However, Carano didn’t find it a big deal and refused to change it, tweeting, “They’re mad cuz I won’t put pronouns in my bio to show my support for trans lives. After months of harassing me in every way. I decided to put 3 VERY controversial words in my bio . . . beep/bop/boop.”

After being asked if she understood how her bio could be offensive, she stated she didn’t think trans people would support the “bullies” she had to deal with who forced her to put something in her bio in the first place. She said people forced her “through harassment and name calling everyday of the month”.

Carano added, “I know trans people wouldn’t condone this harrassment when they hear about the CHILDREN, women & men who have contacted me, thanking me for taking a stand against these bullies because it effected their mental health to the point of near suicide at times”.

Gina Carano stated that her selection of pronouns “has zero to do with mocking trans people”. However, one user demanded that Carano just admit that she is transphobic and move on which didn’t sit well with Carano. “I want people to know you can take hate with a smile,” she declared, “So BOOP you for misunderstanding.”

All too familiar

This wasn’t the first time Gina Carano has been under fire for being accused of being transphobic. In fact, last week she liked a tweet on Twitter that mocked users who practiced this method of self-identification. The two incidents caused Twitter users to fire back with a flood of tweets directed to her: 

“50% of Hollywood wears masks and respects the trans community, to bad ur not included in that . . .” @greensabers

“putting [your pronouns] in your bio is just a decent thing to do “ and claimed that “you liking tweets that mocks that just sits wrong with many people.” @Aschka

Another user, @anngnicola, accused Carano of “supporting people who make fun of others for showing trans people that they’re supported and valid” before telling the actress to “literally mind your own business.”

A little too late

After many heated tweets traveling back & forth between Carano & Twitter users, she informed them that her The Mandalorian costar Pedro Pascal helped her understand why people were putting pronouns in their bios. “I won’t be putting them in my bio but good for all you who choose to,” she said. “I stand against bullying, especially the most vulnerable & freedom to choose.”

Although Gina Carano addressed the problem, people weren’t buying it and continued to harass & accuse bigotry towards the actress.

Do you think Carano was being treated harshly for her decisions? Whose side are you on?

  • She can put any pronouns in she wants to. Who are the a-holes who were demanding she add pronouns to her profile? Maybe she doesn’t want to. Now this same group of bullies is all butt hurt and offended because she put beep bop robot sound in her profile. I thought it was funny. Those people can go F themselves.

    • A girl who decided to fight as a guy back then and be called tomboy or worse things, building muscle years before the feminazi marketing… no one can call her out. She is truly an empowered woman.

  • I too found the droid identification humorous. But bullying people to support you isn’t support, it’s coercion (at it’s mildest). If I don’t want to include gender pronouns in my bio, so what? My choice. Doesn’t mean I respect someone who does any less.

  • She don’t have to, but beep/bop/boop was offensive and mockery, she knows exactly what she did, she was building a volcano of hate since the BLM, refusing to support and liking and making racists comment and been anti mask. She got what she wants

  • I agree, it’s HER bio. She’s not Tran- gay- or cis- not does she even play one in The Mandalorian, so why should she have to put anything in her bio that says as such?!

  • No she’s not.

  • The very idea of someone/anyone insisting that others use particular language, as they attempted to do in Canada, is both offensive and bullying.

  • You people are so misguided, it’s APPALLING. OBVIOUSLY the Trans community is in need of special consideration. Like people who have Down Syndrome, they have special needs. We aren’t AT ALL talking about mere human beings who should only be treated like everyone else, we’re talking about SPECIAL PEOPLE ! Don’t you guys get it? I mean, GOD!!
    LET ME SPELL IT OUT FOR YOU OBVIOUS MORONSS
    YOU HAVE TO BROADCAST WHAT TRANS PEOPLE SAY YOU HAVE TO. IF YOU DON’T, THEY WON’T FEEL NORMAL. Since that’s what we all think of as normal, obviously, it’s only fair. Otherwise, you’re a fascist.

  • God only created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Adam, or Eve and Eve

    there is nothing wrong with what she has done

    You should be ashamed of God because what you did has made God angry
    You will feel the consequences of what you have done while living in the world later when this world has ended
