'Star Wars' Actor John Boyega Responds to Trailer Criticism

John Boyega has taken to social media to fire back after the highly-anticipated trailer for his new film Star Wars: The Force Awakens brought on its fair share of critics.

The 22-year-old actor seemingly responded to haters with an Instagram post that ended, “To whom it may concern…Get used to it :).”

John kept it mostly positive though, thanking fans for their support.

“Thank you for all the love and support!” he wrote. “The fan mail and fan art has added to my joy! Isn’t is crazy that Star Wars is actually happening? I’m in the movie but as a star wars fan I am very excited! A year is a long time but it will be worth the wait.”

Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 15, 2015!

ARE YOU EXCITED for the film to come out?

    The trailer just looks a little ridiculous in the beginning like a parody movie or Spaceballs. It’s not his fault, I think. It’s the editing.

    People are ridiculous. He is OBVIOUSLY wearing the storm trooper uniform as a disguise. There are way too many bigots walking the earth. If only there were extermination camps for them.

    Good for him! Great actor.

    a lot star wars fans got so nasty about the prequels … hayden christensen still gets crap from losers walking down the street years later … people are even more vile across the internet.

    And the original batch of troopers weren’t exactly Caucasian in the first place.

    What is the big deal? Didn’t Lando blow up the second Death Star?

    Spaceballs is a parody of Star Wars. Star Wars can’t parody a parody of itself.

    I don’t get the criticism this movie is getting . It’s ridiculous to me , as a HUGE fan of the Star Wars saga i’m very excited to see the movie , and i’m estatic that JJ Abrams is doing it , I’m a big fan of his movies also . Those so called “fanboys” can be a bit annoying sometimes .Like John Boyeda said … get use to it ! I’m sure 20 yrs from now someone else will do another remake … LOL.. It’s the hollywood way !

    Star Wars has been a parody of itself since Phantom Menace.

    People sill gives Hayden Christensen grief because he is a terrible actor. Star Wars was the icing on the cake of his awful career.

  • Doryphore

    This is the reason George Lucas sold the franchise to Disney. He was tired of the fanatics.

  • eternalozzie

    thank you for being an example of my point :/
