Actress Gina Carano was reportedly dropped as a client by the United Talent Agency (UTA) after she was fired by Disney due to her now infamous social media post. Carano was fired from her role on 'The Mandalorian' after posting a screenshot of a political social media post that rebuked US political divisiveness.

"Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…even by children," Carano's Instagram post read.

"Because history is edited, most people today don’t realize that to get to the point where Nazi soldiers could easily round up thousands of Jews, the government first made their own neighbors hate them simply for being Jews. How is that any different from hating someone for their political views?" the post continued.

UTA confirmed to the Hollywood Reporter Wednesday that Carano had been dropped as a client.

Lucasfilm released a statement on Carano's firing, calling her social media post "denigrating."

"Gina Carano is not currently employed by Lucasfilm and there are no plans for her to be in the future," Lucasfilm said in the statement.

"Nevertheless, her social media posts denigrating people based on their cultural and religious identities are abhorrent and unacceptable," the statement continued.

The decision to fire Carano for her post was harshly criticized on social media.

One social media post by a Daily Caller editor read, "Gina Carano's post made the point that mass violence starts with hatred for your neighbor. This is not only uncontroversially true but also one perspective of the commandment to love your neighbor. That idea is not a call to empty niceness. It's how you prevent suffering."
