Pedro Pascal Controversy: Fans of Star Wars Want After an Earlier “Controversial” Tweet Surfaced, Pascal Was Fired
On April 2, 1975, José Pedro Balmaceda Pascal was born in Chile. He later moved to the United States. His breakout roles as Oberyn Martell in Season 4 of HBO’s fantasy series Game of Thrones (2014) and Javier Pea on Netflix’s biographical crime series Narcos catapulted him to stardom (2015–2017).
Since 2019, he has portrayed the title character on Disney+’s Star Wars series The Mandalorian, and he will do so again in the upcoming spin-off series The Book of Boba Fett. In The Last of Us, he’ll be playing the main character, Joel. Film roles include The Adjustment Bureau (2011), Bloodsucking Bastards (2015), The Great Wall (2016), Kingsman: The Golden Circle (2017), The Equalizer 2 (2018), Triple Frontier (2019), Wonder Woman 1984 (2020), and The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent (2022).
Shockingly, management at Lucasfilm has decided to end Gina Carano’s Star Wars voyage by terminating her contract. Carano, who has been in the news for the past year due to her social and political posts, was apparently only waiting for the appropriate time to be fired.
After an old tweet of Pedro Pascal’s from 2018 surfaced, some Star Wars fans are calling for him to be treated the same way as his co-star Carano. Pascal also compared the United States to Nazi Germany in the same tweet.
June 2018’s tweet features a photo of youngsters in both Nazi concentration camps and American detention centers, with the simple phrase #ThisisAmerica.
Same Movie as @ginacarano, same analogy, though the pic has the wrong date… I'm told it was 2010 under Obama/Biden.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) February 11, 2021
So does @Disney discriminate against women for doing what their male actors do or is is only discrimination against conservatives? https://t.co/D2q9Vo9GQX
Once again, the “controversial” tweet went viral, this time attracting the attention of commentators like Ben Shapiro and Donald Trump Jr., son of former U.S. President Donald Trump Sr., who both criticized the company for firing Carano but keeping Pascal, who had almost made the same mistake as the actress.
People are certain that Lucasfilm should also terminate Pascal because of that tweet, even though it was posted three years ago. It got to the point that the hashtag “#FirePedroPascal” was trending on Twitter. Below are some examples of enthusiastic responses from fans:
Pascal has been silent so far on the matter
It’s a confusing and chaotic environment that’s already producing problems online. At this time, Lucasfilm is standing hard on its decision to remove Gina from the Star Wars series, and it will be interesting to watch what they do next, especially in light of the fact that fans have also dragged Pascal into the dispute.
Pascal was cast as the lead character of the first live-action Star Wars series, The Mandalorian, which premiered on Disney+ in November of 2019. In 2019, he also played Francisco ‘Catfish’ Morales in the crime drama Triple Frontier.
Pascal has joined the cast of “The Bubble,” a film by Judd Apatow, as of this year. Pascal was cast as the main character Joel Miller in the HBO film adaption of “The Last of Us” later that month. It’s been speculated that Pedro Pascal’s fortune is at $10 million as of August 2022.
