Ewan McGregor Calls Out Racist Star Wars Fans

Ewan McGregor Calls Out Racist Star Wars Fans

Obi-Wan Kenobi opened up to be one of the biggest premieres on Disney+ to date, but despite its celebration, it also comes with some snags. Apparently, there have been some terrible comments being thrown at actress Moses Ingram (Reva) by some toxic Star Wars fans, and Ewan McGregor himself has come out to call them out.

Watch this video from McGregor:

McGregor isn’t the first to call them out either. The official Star Wars account has also condemned the toxic fanbase and has publicly stood beside Ingram, saying, ‘… in the Star Wars galaxy, don’t choose to be racist.’

Though toxic fans have been a problem of Star Wars since the early 2000s, only now have we been getting some solid participation from the actors and the official account. The replies and support took kind of a while during the time of the Sequel Trilogy, but now we have some instant, sharp commentary from the PR team, and that’s pretty great.

We may never be able to stamp out toxic fans, but there’s always an opportunity to speak up against them and show support for whoever they choose to bully. Personally, if they’re bothering your timeline, you can always mute/block accounts for your own peace of mind. I know that’s what The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson did.

Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi watches over young Luke Skywalker and evades the Empire’s elite Jedi hunters during his exile on the desert planet Tatooine.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is now streaming on Disney+, and you can watch out for new episodes every Friday.
