After Gina Carano was fired from the production of The Mandalorian, many have attempted to continue having her blacklisted from Hollywood. After being dropped from her agency, it seemed unlikely that Gina Carano would be getting much work after the fact. But she managed to join up with The Daily Wire, which has since been collaborating with her on a variety of upcoming film projects. This includes Terror on the Prairie, in which Gina Carano is starring. Nevertheless, some are still trying to have Gina Carano canceled, and that now includes the organization Pop Culture Classroom. In particular, they’ve attempted to have Gina Carano removed from her scheduled appearance at Fan Expo Denver.
It was announced on April 6 that Gina Carano would be appearing at the convention in July. As you can see in the announcement below, she’ll be joining a variety of other Star Wars alumni like Ming-Na Wen, Carl Weathers, and Ashley Eckstein.
Per the announcement below:
The FAN EXPO Denver Star Wars line up is growing. Gina Carano (Cara Dune) is coming to Denver and joining Star Wars legends like Ming-Na Wen (Fennec Shand), Carl Weathers (Greef Carga) and Ashley Eckstein (Ahsoka Tano).

In response to this, Pop Culture Classroom wrote the following statement on Twitter. They began with the first message:
“Pop Culture Classroom is committed to creating welcoming and inclusive spaces through our educational programs at FAN EXPO Denver. PCC was not consulted on the booking of Gina Carano and opposes her involvement in the FAN EXPO Denver event.”
“Carano’s past comments and actions are at direct odds with our organization’s mission to celebrate diversity and build inclusive pop culture spaces where all feel welcomed.”
Finally, the organization concluded:
“We’ve expressed our opposition to the team at FAN EXPO Denver, and Carano will not be participating in any of Pop Culture Classroom’s educational programs or activities during the event.”
The statements made by Pop Culture Classroom are very similar to the statements made by Disney when they first fired Gina Carano. Despite her attempts to continue her career, it appears that many are unwilling to let that happen easily.
