Gina Carano claims Russian invasion of Ukraine due to COVID-19 conspiracy

MMA fighters that believe in conspiracy theories are nothing new to the sport. Recently, former MMA fighter Gina Carano claimed that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is a result of a COVID-19 conspiracy.

Last week Russia launched a full-scale invasion of Ukraine. The invasion came after years of tension between the two former Soviet union members.

Active competitors such as unified heavyweight champion Oleksandr Usyk and former three-division champion Vasily Lomachenko have answered Ukranian outcries and are trying to defend currently.

MMA fighter turned actress, Gina Carano shared her thoughts on Twitter. The 39-years old said that she believes that the war stems from countries losing control of the “covid narrative”. She also added that the current crisis is like a reality TV show.

She also added a picture with messages that criticize the COVID-19 mandates stating that the government has caused suicides, overdoses, bankruptcy, and more due to the lockdowns.

“The moment they lost control of the covid narrative.
Cue a war.
Straight from one crisis to the next.
A scripted reality show sacrificing innocent lives for unquenchable greed.
Endless power grabs.
No accountability.
Devastated economies.
Never give up freedom for fear.” wrote Carano on her Twitter account.

The tweet received various reactions from the commenters – most of them, calling out the ridiculousness of the claim. But despite that, the tweet also had an enormous amount of likes and retweets.

Carano is used to controversies by now. She was sacked earlier last year due to controversial postings she reshared. The post in question compared the treatment of unvaccinated individuals to how Jewish people were treated in Nazi Germany. That comment got her fired in spire of being a fan favorite on Star Wars universe show The Mandalorian. This was not the first fringe belief she shared – but it definitely caused the biggest backlash. Carano is currently slated to appear in Daily Wire produced Western that’s due out sometime next year.
