We just hope he’s not going to be next.

Comedian Bill Burr, who portrays Migs Mayfield in the Disney+ television series The Mandalorian may have just stepped in a minefield.

Burr recently spoke out in defense of his co-star Gina Carano, aka Cara Dune on the series, after she was fired for daring to express her opinions on social media.

During the February 24th episode of The Bill Pert Podcast, Burr said, “It’s a weird time. … Unless she did some truly horrible s— or said overtly racist s—… I don’t know. I think there are just too many channels. And then you gotta do sensational s—… I don’t know what the f— it is. I’m on that f–king show. Now, I gotta watch what the f— I say.”

Burr described Carano as an absolute sweetheart.” “Super nice f—ing person.”

“And you know whatever and somehow someone will take this video and they’ll make me say something else and try to get rid of my bald action figure,” Burr added, referring to how Hasbro has also reportedly scrapped Carano’s Cara Dune action figure.

Burr describes a rather ominous atmosphere in Hollywood now. “It’s how it is out there. It’s f—ing crazy times. People just waiting, laying in the weeds.”

In an interview with Ben Shapiro, Carano explained how she felt watched while shooting “The Mandalorian.”
“They’ve been all over me and they’ve been watching me like a hawk,” she said. “And I’m watching people on the same production and they can say everything they want, and that’s where I had a problem. I had a problem because I wasn’t going along with the narrative.”

She added, “I was prepared at any point to be let go because I’ve seen this happen to so many people. I’ve seen the looks on their faces. I’ve seen the bullying that takes place, and so when this started, they point their guns at you, and you know it’s only a matter of time. I’ve seen it happen to so many people, and I just thought to myself, ‘you’re coming for me, I know you are.’ They’re making it very obvious through their employees who were coming for me, and so I was like, ‘I’m going to go down swinging and I’m going to stay true to myself.'”

And for that, many thousands, if not millions of Mando fans love her even more. Including us.

As Cara Dune, she was a shock trooper who turned galactic marshal; a rebel who never up the fight for justice and freedom for all.

In real life, Gina Carano stood up for her beliefs and stayed a rebel to the end. That’s why we’ve created a special limited-edition t-shirt design in honor of Gina’s fictional character, and her true character.

Always stand for what you believe. Be a rebel to the end.
