By now, you’ve probably seen the new trailer for Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens. Even though the release date of the movie is still months away, sci-fi nerds everywhere are pumped about the next official chapter from the Star Wars universe.
Well, not all sci-fi nerds, actually.
There is a small, but vocal, group of idiots who seem to think that the movie is promoting white genocide because one of the main characters is black. Yup, let that sink in for a second…
They even started a hashtag (because hashtags fix everything!) for their displeasure — #BoycottStarWarsVII. Just scrolling through this insanity on Twitter is both hilarious and incredibly sad.
#BoycottStarWarsVII – I know the trailer is short, but it’s pretty unrealistic that we don’t see the black guy committing murder or rape.

#BoycottStarWarsVII If white people aren’t wanted in Star Wars, then our money must not be either.

We’re willing to guess that the movie will probably still make billions of dollars, despite this “boycott”. We could probably go on endlessly about the absurdity of it all, but we think this Twitter reply sums everything up with a perfect *mic drop* moment.
