Today “In Here We Go Again” News: “Obi-Wan Kenobi” Star Moses Ingram Spoke Up About Receiving Racist Messages From Fans On Social Media
Baby Yoda, perhaps the only universally beloved character in the Star Wars universe, is played by a green puppet with a hand rammed up his ass. Yet, according to Deadline, Moses Ingram, the actor who plays Sith Inquisitor Reva Sevander on the new Star Wars show on Disney+, Obi-Wan Kenobi, has been on the receiving end of a slew of vicious attacks on social media. And I don’t think I need to tell you she’s not a wrinkled-up little Benjamin Button-looking motherfucker who can’t even open his eyes without somebody tweaking his nipple from the inside. Rather, Moses is a fully autonomous Black woman capable of a full range of emotion and movement. Slap a costume on her and she’s good to go, no batteries required. But since a shameful number of Star Wars fans are racist as hell, Moses went on Instagram live to let people know what kind of hateful messages she’s been receiving since the first two episodes of Obi-Wan Kenobi were released.
John Boyega Says Disney Used His Race To Market “Star Wars” And Then Sidelined His Character
Back in June John Boyega made headlines when he gave an impassioned, impromptu speech at a Black Lives Matter protest in London. In it, he said, “I don’t know if I’m going to have a career after this, but fuck that.” Celebs like Jordan Peele, Olivia Wilde, and his Star Wars director JJ Abrams took to Twitter to assure John that they’d still love to work with him.
Now, John’s continuing that honesty streak in a new interview with GQ. He discusses Black Lives Matter, his personal journey to self-actualization, and being a Black actor in the Star Wars franchise. He says that he, along with other actors of color like Naomi Ackie, Kelly Marie Tran, and even Oscar Isaac (whom John refers to as “a brother from Guatemala”), were trotted out to sell the movies, but sidelined in the actual films.
Kelly Marie Tran’s Role In “Star Wars” Was Cut Down Because Editing Footage Of Carrie Fisher Was Too Difficult
Kelly Marie Tran hasn’t exactly had the easiest transition into the galaxy far, far away. The first time she appeared in a Star Wars film, racist haters chased her off social media. Her most recent appearance in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker was limited to a brief 76 seconds. Well, Rise of Skywalker screenwriter Chris Terrio recently spoke about Kelly’s demotion and he says it’s nothing Kelly did. According to Chris, it’s all because of the late Carrie Fisher.
Kelly Marie Tran Said “Bye Bitch” To Social Media After Months Of Harassment From Trolls
If I have to cover a story about trolls and racist ugliness, I should at least include a picture of Stormtrooper crotch. Yes, that Stormtrooper crotch is as flat and plastic as a cutting board, but I’ll take what I can get. And now I really want to suck off a cutting board.
Daisy Ridley, just one of the thousands of British brunettes who stars in a Star Wars movie, rid her life of Instagram two years ago when she made a post about gun violence and got covered with hate-laced diarrhea spewed out by trolls. Daisy said at the time that her skin isn’t thick enough to take on the hate. Kelly Marie Tran, the first woman of color to play a lead in a Star Wars movie, has now followed Daisy Ridley out of the gates of the smoldering tundra of wet farts and rotten dick cheese that is social media. And she left because like Daisy, she can’t take the hate.
