How is that different from hating someone for their political opinions? “stated Carano’s post. , which was a screenshot of someone else’s Instagram post.

Carano also shared a meme with an image of the face of a person covered in masks that mocked the mask mandates related to the California coronavirus pandemic.

The posts, which sparked multiple hashtags among fans calling for Carano’s termination from the show, are the latest examples of politically charged posts that have generated a backlash toward the outspoken conservative actress and declared supporter of Donald Trump.
