The Last of Us star Pedro Pascal slammed for comparing Trump supporters to Nazis after co-star Gina Carano's firing

THE Mandalorian star Pedro Pascal has been hit with criticism for his own social media posts after Gina Carano was fired by Disney.

Pedro, who stars as the titular character in the Star Wars TV show, had previously compared Trump supporters to Nazis, with a post that likened the confederate army to Nazi Germany and MAGA fans.

"Pedro Pascal, who plays the Mandalorian on Disney Plus, was not fired for this post on Instagram comparing Trump supporters to Nazis and Confederates," shared Travis Wines, who ran for election to the U.S. House to represent Michigan in 2018.

"For those keeping score: Dehumanize millions and you get to keep your job. Attempt to humanize millions and you will lose it," commented another, as one fan said it was "not okay."

Gina was dropped after resharing a post that compared modern American politics to Nazi Germany, while she claimed that having different political views in 2021 was similar to being Jewish during the Holocaust.

However, many defended Pedro, with one replying: "Where's the lie?"

Trump rallies have often seen the confederate flag and Nazi flag flying.

White superemacists have also publicly supported Trump, who lost the 2020 general election to President Joe Biden.

Pedro has previously defended Gina, after she was slammed for addng "beep/bop/boop" to her Twitter bio, which many fans found to be transphobic.

Gina later alleged her co-star Pedro "helped me understand why people were putting them in their bios," and that she "didn’t know before but I do now."

Pedro's sister recently came out as a transgender woman.

"I won’t be putting them in my bio but good for all you who choose to. I stand against bullying, especially the most vulnerable & [support] freedom to choose," she added.

But in recent months, her social media posts have become more controversial.

She has mocked mask-wearing amid the coronavirus pandemic, and spread misinformation with regard to voter fraud.
