Gina Carano Slams Co-Star Pedro Pascal for Posting Ted Cruz's Number on Social Media

We've proven over the last couple of months that The Mandalorian co-stars Pedro Pascal and Gina Carano share a mutual respect for one another and despite the fact that Carano has been unceremoniously fired from Disney and Lucasfilm, Pascal seems to be the last person she'll ever blame although she does agree that an issue of double standard came into play.

Since her controversial ousting from the Star Wars franchise, a lot of people quickly turned their attention to Pascal and questioned how the actor was able to keep his job when he himself posted a controversial tweet three years ago. This even led some fans to launch a #FirePedroPascal petition which didn't gain as much traction as the #FireGinaCarano movement.

During her interview with Ben Shapiro's show on The Daily Wire, Carano defended Pascal's controversial post but interestingly enough, she would also criticize Pascal for posting Ted Cruz's phone number on social media, a move she thought was inappropriate. Gina says: "I adore Pedro. I adore him. I know he's said and done some hurtful things. I don't think that posting anybody's number on social media, is okay."

The former mixed martial arts fighter was referring to Pascal's tweet from January 9th in which he urged his followers to share their thoughts with the US senator in relation to Cruz's congressional votes against certifying the 2020 election victory of then-President-elect Joe Biden.

Pascal has yet to address the statements made by Carano on Shapiro's talk show but I believe he'd much rather discuss things personally and in private with his former colleague. Now, I don't know if they've already talked since Carano's firing but hopefully, the messy situation doesn't change anything with their friendship.

Meanwhile, the third season of The Mandalorian is scheduled to begin production this April.
