'Star Wars' Is Being Boycotted By Racists, J.J. Abrams Responds

The highly anticipated film Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens is making great strides for diversity with having a black male lead (played by John Boyega), though some racist people are trying to tear down the film with a boycott.

“#BoycottStarWarsVII because it is anti-white propaganda promoting #whitegenocide,” one tweet read on Monday.

Racist tweets were sent out using the #BoycottStarWarsVII hashtag and it led to director J.J. Abrams defending the film right before the trailer launch.

“We cannot wait to share the trailer with you tonight. I don’t care if you’re black, white, brown, jawa, wookiee, jedi, or sith. I just hope you like it!” J.J. wrote in a handwritten note posted to Twitter.

    The media ignores racism all the time by hiding Black on White violence, but so far it hasn’t gone away. It has gotten worse.

    I’m glad to see this story getting traction. We need to
    complain about politically correct moves in movies and stupidly wrong casting of the wrong race for many movie roles.

    “Great Scotty!” Should the actor’s have audio tapes instead of scripts then?

    No matter what the jewbrits will tell you, this thing has already bombed miserably at the nonexistent box-office. This is already long inevitable both financially, socially, morally and commercially. Goodbye and good riddance, Star Wars. You’re long out of date and too much trouble to carry on the right way, anyway. CG on, obi-can’t, but the war has been long over, dead and done with for decades. Nothing to see here. Move along, move along, THX1138.

    Let the nuts rewrite the movie…Stormtroopers are clones – if one is black they are all black – which means the white clones were killed off…genocide. If this was in reverse you would be whining…but as a normal part of your life that’s what you do.

  • ginamero

    Just do not go and see it. I will not because I can’t stand JJ Abrams he mega racist and I’m not a white teen or early twenty male…so I would be skipping it either way.

  • ginamero

    Notice in every left article about this they call those opposed to white genocide racist. Funny how this group uses that word constantly whether it fits or not. The real racists are always calling others racist…it’s a cover.

    Why are all the villains White?

    I don’t get it. Why are we calling them a racist if they are worried
    about genocide? how is worrying about genocide of your race racist? Is
    it cause they are white? ( Yes) doesn’t make any sense. you can’t punish a whole race of people defending their race. nothing wrong with it. There was no reason
    for that outrage though. But Worrying about genocide is you just
    worried, it shouldn’t be racist. That’s messed up. Sometimes I wonder is
    lies mainstream nowadays? Did anybody notice that it sparked outrage, because it was white people worried about genocide, and did anybody realize that they were calling them a racist for being against ,and worrying about genocide? It’s just a cover up for the true racists, the ones calling them a racist for being against genocide of their own race. If you are worried about genocide of your race, you should be just worried Where does it say that it’s racist worrying about genocide? No where! It’s just stupid people in power that is changing the definition of it around, saying it is racist even though it isn’t. But there are a lot of self hating whites today though. ( Internalized white racism) And a lot of them are in the media, and in politics. Be careful whites!
