Racist Star Wars fans attacks host Krystina Arielle

This should have been Krystina Arielle’s week to shine. The cosplayer and consummate nerd announced her awesome new gig hosting Star Wars: The High Republic Show, a web series for StarWars.com and the Star Wars YouTube channel that covers Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The High Republic multimedia initiative.

 

But like all people of color who join the Star Wars universe, Arielle was subject to the targeted harassment from the fandom’s toxic racist contingency. Racist Star Wars trolls have been relentless in their attacks on franchise stars John Boyega and Kelly Marie Tran. And those same trolls are now directing their venomous hate at Arielle, focusing on some of her old tweets addressing systemic racism. Because in their broken brains, a Black woman calling out racist white systems and racist white people is (wait for it) racist?

Ugh, as a Star Wars stan I’m so ashamed of these “fans”. Like, do they even know Darth Vader is voiced by a black man? Yes the last three films were trash, but not because of black & female actors :biblio:

Majority of Star Wars fans are straight men so it shouldn’t be surprising they're racist and misogynistic.

There's a lot of Star Wars fans that are basement virgins, who thinks progressive changes in media only exists to undermine their identity, and see it as a personal attack on them. They should try to go outside and realize being mad at a movie franchise is sad.

lots of fandoms have this issue but i see lots of anti sjws saying movies suck and blame it on "forced woke" or "PrOgESSiveS" when in fact it has nothing to do with the actors, its really tragic

It’s really sad, how toxic a portion of this fandom is. I grew up on Star Wars and every time a new project comes out (with the exception of Rogue 1) they always try to drag it through the mud for all the wrong reasons. I didn’t like the sequel trilogy all that much but the actors weren’t really the problem. The writing/direction just wasn’t very good. 
 

you’re right though... the mandalorian seems to not be receiving nearly as much of the racist backlash that the sequels did

White patriarchal supremacists will rot in their mediocrity.

 

They need to realize that no one is attacking them, especially not for who they are.

 

They are the ones who have been attacking the very fabric of our society for centuries. 
 

All modern social issues are at least partially caused by white patriarchal supremacy and most of them are directly caused by it.

 

Anyone can support white patriarchal supremacy. And white men are just as negatively affected by it as anyone else.

 

They really just need to fix themselves. Fix themselves or get over themselves because everyone else is so over their bull****. If they want to feel attacked because people want to effect positive change it is because they are the problem. They’re just exposing their guilty consciences.

 

They’re so obvious and it’s just funny and ironic to everyone else and they’re so mad because they’re too something to see that. Too bad, really.

 

I hope they get better!

Do they know that George Lucas's wife is a Black woman, and he has a child with her? :psyduck:

 

Also George and his wife have done a lot of good trying to preserve black media and showcase it in his visual storytelling museum.
