Two weeks removed from her controversial ousting from Lucasfilm, former The Mandalorian Gina Carano broke the internet once again through her exclusive sit-down interview with The Daily Wire's Ben Shapiro where she revealed juicy details about what led to her firing and the current state she's in.

In the said interview, Carano exposed Disney and Lucasfilm for allegedly "bullying" her co-actors and other employees. "I’ve been through so much, and I’ve seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that’s been taking place, and I saw it before,” Carano said. “I’m not the only one that’s ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply."

The former mixed martial arts fighter also defended the posts that resulted in her getting fired from the company, claiming that she only wanted to spark debate and not spread hate like her detractors are claiming,

Over the last couple of days, some fans have started pitting her against good friend and co-star Pedro Pascal and surprisingly enough, Carano defended the actor for his "controversial" 2018 tweet which compares the current state of the US to Nazi Germany. 

And if you thought the entire issue between her and the company ends there, Carano said that she'll stand up to Lucasfilm and won't let other people fall victim to their abusive ways. She said: "It's still devastating. But the thought of this happening to anybody else, especially somebody who could not handle this the way I can? No — they don't get to do that."

"They don't get to make people feel like that. And if I buckle, then little girls and little boys — who are not getting a fair shake at growing up right now — if I buckle, it's going to make it OK for these companies who have a history of lying, to be lying and do this to other people. And they've done it to other people. And I'm not going down without a fight."

Now that Carano has seemingly been freed from the shackles that have been binding her for a good number of months, expect more revelations to come out from the ever-so-controversial actress. One thing's for sure, we won't hear the end of this issue, not anytime soon, at least.

We still don't know what happens to the Cara Dune character but The Mandalorian Season 3 is expected to begin filming this April.
