Twitter is fun, but it’s also a cesspool of bottom feeding orcs in human disguise, and today the aforementioned have decided to use hashtags and memes to vent their frustration at *gasp* the diversity in Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens. Oh, won’t someone think of the children?!?!?!?! Even though the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII was first coined by an orc that shall not be named in March of 2014, two Twitter users who also won’t be named, because screw them, kicked things off yesterday and it’s gained traction with all the lower life forms that live in the darkest crevices of the Twitterverse.

Now you know Twitter wasn’t about to let that stand!
Dear #BoycottStarWarsVII–If you can’t handle the diversity in s Star Wars movie, you’re really going to have a tough time with Reality.

This was a low point in the Star Wars fandom, but it’s nice to see that by the time the trailer dropped that the racist cries tweeting #BoycottStarWarsVII were drowned out. I have a theory about this, and it won’t be the most popular–in fact you might even drag me for it–but I have a theory about this that I will share with you guys tomorrow. There’s a reason why #BoycottStarWarsVII was even a thing… And it goes all the way back to the first three films. Look out for it tomorrow!
