Actress and former mixed martial artist Gina Carano is suing Lucasfilm and Disney with the support of Elon Musk’s lawyers, following her firing from the show “The Mandalorian.”

Carano claims she was targeted and misrepresented for her views, which included questioning COVID policies and forced pronoun use.

Carano wrote, “Today is an important day for me–I am filing a lawsuit against [Lucasfilm and Disney].”

“The truth is I was being hunted down from everything I posted to every post I liked because I was not in line with the acceptable narrative of the time,” she continued.

“My words were consistently twisted to demonize & dehumanize me as an alt right wing extremist. It was a bullying smear campaign aimed at silencing, destroying & making an example out of me,” explained the actress.

Carano continued, “Were my questions about masks, lockdowns & forced vaccines ok to ask & push the subject into the light? Should we have been allowed to publicly discuss those topics at that time without being harassed or censored? Absolutely.”

Musk had previously offered to fund legal bills for users unfairly treated by their employers on X, and Carano was one of the first to respond.

“Turns out after sending them as much information as I could gather these past few months, my now lawyers & X believe whole-heartedly in my case & are moving forward,” wrote Carano.

“As for me, I would love to pick up where I left off & continue my journey of creating & participating in story-telling, which is my utmost passion & everything I worked so hard for,” she continued.

She expressed gratitude for the support and looks forward to clearing her name.

“It has been difficult to move forward with the lies & labels stuck on me, backed & encouraged by the most powerful entertainment company in the world. I am grateful someone has come to my defense in such a powerful way & look forward to clearing my name,” wrote the actress.

“Thank you to all the people who have supported me & made your voices heard. I pray God blesses each & every one of you,” she concluded.
