Yesterday, everything was surprise and happiness after the confirmation of Pedro Pascal, the Mandalorian himself, as Joel for the HBO series The Last of Us . However, the atmosphere has turned murky around the actor because the controversy generated after the dismissal of Gina Carano from the Disney + series could reach him.
GINA CARANO FANS CALL FOR THE DISMISSAL OF PEDRO PASCAL FROM THE MANDALORIAN
We go in parts. What started this situation was the dismissal of Gina Carano from The Mandalorian after a series of publications in which the actress compared the tense political and social situation in the United States after the recent change in the presidency with the Holocaust occurred in World War II. This publication, coupled with the support that Carano gave to the protest movements that manifested violently in the Capitol, sealed her fate under the shelter of Disney and the company had no other option but to fire her.
That said, it didn’t take long for the controversy to spiral out of control by those who consider Gina Carano’s dismissal unfair. As it is currently said, “there is always a tweet” and a group of users of the social network did not take long to delve into the past publications of Pedro Pascal’s account until they found one that made a comparison of the concentration camps of Nazis with the detention of illegal migrants in the US. In the wake of this, furious fans turned #FirePedroPascal into a trend, demanding that the actor also be fired for this post.
Despite this, the mood around the The Last of Us series is still high because after the confirmation of Pedro Pascal as Joel and Bella Ramsey as Ellie, the project is already in shape and seems to be on an excellent path to show a different perspective of the Naughty Dog franchise.
