    During the sit-down, Shapiro noted that Carano’s co-starleft-wing lead actor Pedro Pascalhad also previously used Nazi comparisons in a social media post.

    Terug in 2018, Pascal shared an image to his Twitter account comparing US ICE detention centers to Nazi concentration camps.

    Carano claimed that Pascal had been able to get away with such an act because he was a liberal, while she was punished because she was conservative.

    Egter, she stated that she still was firm friends with Pascal in spite of their political differences.

    ‘I adore Pedro,’ Carano stated.

    ‘We had an agreement after we realized we were a little bit politically different. We had an agreement that, first and foremost, you’re a human being. And you’re my friend first.

    Carano, who played Cara Dune in the first two seasons of the series, was fired earlier this month after igniting an uproar on social media over an Instagram post invoking the Holocaust.

    She shared a message on Instagram Stories which stated: ‘Jews were beaten in the streets, not by Nazi soldiers but by their neighbors…. even by children.

    ‘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 hashtag ‘fire Gina Caranosoon began circulating.
