Bill Burr has never been afraid to speak his mind, and the stand-up comedian turned actor has now come to the defence of his The Mandalorian costar Gina Carano during the latest episode of his podcast.

The news broke last month that Carano had been fired from her role as Cara Dune on the Disney+ Star Wars series for what Lucasfilm called an "abhorrent" Instagram post, but that was just the straw that broke the camel's back, as the former MMA fighter had been stirring up controversy for weeks on social media.

However, Burr doesn't seem to think she said anything bad enough to warrant her dismissal.

“Unless she did some truly horrible shit or said overtly racist shit,” Burr said. “I don’t know. I think there is just too many channels. And then you gotta do sensational shit… I don’t know what the f*ck it is. I’m on that f*cking show. Now, I gotta watch what the f*ck I say.”

“She was an absolute sweetheart," he added. "Super nice [frick]ing person. And you know... somehow someone will take this video and they’ll make me say something else and try to get rid of my bald action figure… It’s how it is out there. It’s f*cking crazy times. People just waiting, laying in the weeds.”

Carano was set to have a more prominent role in season 3 of The Mandalorian before going on to headline at least one spinoff for the streamer, but that's obviously not on the cards anymore. She is making a movie with Ben Shapiro, though, so swings and roundabouts and all that.

What do you make of Burr's comments? You can hear what he has to say for yourselves in the player below.
