Bill Burr is sharing his thoughts on the firing of former co-star Gina Carano from "The Mandalorian." Carano was dropped from the Disney+ series after sharing controversial posts to social media last month. Burr, who plays Mayfeld in "The Mandalorian," has suggested that the axing was drastic.

"It’s a weird time. ... Unless she did some truly horrible s--- or said overtly racist s---… I don’t know. I think there are just too many channels," he said during his podcast, "The Bill Bert Podcast." "And then you gotta do sensational s---… I don’t know what the f--- it is. I’m on that f--king show. Now, I gotta watch what the f--- I say."

Carano is "an absolute sweet heart" and "super nice f---ing person," he stated.

Burr added that his comments could very well lead to the scrapping of Mayfeld's action figure, which is what happened to Carano's Cara Dune figurine.

"It’s how it is out there. It’s f---ing crazy times," he continued. "People just waiting, laying in the weeds."

Lucasfilm announced last month that Carano would not return to the "Star Wars" franchise after she shared a post from another account that appeared to compare the political climate to the factors that led to the Holocaust. The company described the content as "abhorrent and unacceptable."

Carano later accused Lucasfilm of bullying her and other stars.

"I've been through so much, and I've seen so much now, clearly, of the bullying that's been taking place, and I saw it before," she said during a recent appearance on "The Ben Shapiro Show," per Deadline. "I'm not the only one that's ever been bullied by this company, and I know that so deeply."
