Okay, here is what this post is about. On Monday night right after the final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens a Twitter account by the name of BoycottStarWarsVII posted numerous tweets about how the new film's director is promoting "White Genocide."
This is not the only Twitter account that is saying this. An account with the name End Cultural Marxism is tweeting similar things.
This is absolutely stupid. Star Wars movies have already featured leads of color. Including James Earl Jones who voiced Darth Vader through the entire original trilogy, and Billy Dee Williams's Lando Calrissian who joined the series with the second installment The Empire Strikes Back.
In defense for the film, many went of twitter to bash on the #BoycottStarWarsVII.

This isn't the first time that the more closed-minded Star Wars fans have spoken their mind. Author Chuck Wendig who wrote the book Star Wars Aftermath received a lot of unnecessary criticism about putting a homosexual protagonist. Wendig stated in a blog saying:
If you’re upset because I put gay characters and a gay protagonist in the book, I got nothing for you. Sorry, you squawking saurian — meteor’s coming. And it’s a fabulously gay Nyan Cat meteor with a rainbow trailing behind it and your mode of thought will be extinct. You’re not the Rebel Alliance. You’re not the good guys. You’re the f***ing Empire, man. You’re the sh**ty, oppressive, totalitarian Empire.
What do you think about those who are supporting #BoycottStarWarsVII?
