Too Fab shines a light on the darker side of Star Wars Fandom in a recent article that shows how rabid fans are doing their best to destroy The Last Jedi.
It’s one thing not to like a film and discuss it merits and detraction… see our own review of The Hobbit films HERE, but Crybaby Star Wars fans are are taking their self-righteous anger to an entirely unacceptable level that makes me understand why director George Lucas sold off his most beloved creation. I don’t blame him, this is fandom out of control.
Here is an excerpt from the article…
“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” defied fan expectations and crushed their meticulous theories under its boot, and some of those fans have decided to do something about it in the nastiest ways possible.
Immediately, they got #NotMyStarWars trending on Twitter so they could complain about it, which is ironic because of course it’s not. It never was. It was George Lucas’ “Star Wars,” then J.J. Abrams’, and now it’s Rian Johnson’s. Until you make a “Star Wars” movie or write one of the canon stories, none of it is yours.
That sense of ownership and entitlement, though, is a double-edged sword for Disney and Lucasfilm. Fans are so passionately connected to this sprawling saga set “a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away,” they virtually guarantee each installment in the saga will be a monster hit at the box office. “The Last Jedi” had the second biggest opening of all time, behind Abrams’ 2015 blockbuster “The Force Awakens.”
With that much power, though, comes a dark side. Fans have spent two years picking apart “Force Awakens” looking for clues and devising elaborate theories about things like Rey’s parents and Snoke’s identity. Johnson decided these mysteries weren’t all that important to the story he wanted to tell, and so he just cast them aside, leaving a certain segment of fandom incensed.
Here are three ways these toxic fans are trying to ruin “The Last Jedi” for the rest for everyone:
