Musk backs Carano suit against Disney over “The Mandalorian” firing

Source: WSOC-TV 9 News

“Gina Carano has filed a lawsuit against Disney and Lucasfilm, and Elon Musk is footing the bill. Carano, who played Cara Dune on ‘The Mandalorian,’ was fired after Disney said she posted on social media comparing being a Republican to being Jewish during the Holocaust, Variety reported. … The actress is suing for wrongful termination and discrimination, asking Lucasfilms to hire her again while paying her at least $75,000. Musk is paying for the legal fight after he said he would pay for lawsuits from people who claim they were discriminated against on X. Carano’s post was not originally posted to Twitter. Instead, they were on Instagram Stories.” (02/07/24)
