The Last Jedi left the broken and fractured Resistance with its fate very uncertain. The struggle between the First Order and the Republic for control of the galaxy rages on and the stories of our favorite characters will come to a close. And there’s so much to tie up!
But not everybody feels this way, about the saga, or about us: its fans.
Ashley St. Clair, a self-proclaimed “freedom fighter” and “conservative” Trump supporter, decided she needed to tear down Star Wars fans, specifically men:
While we don’t disagree with her fully about the cargo shorts, this is clearly ridiculous. And posting a video of someone is just… mean.Star Wars and super hero movie obsession culture has revealed a whole new population of undateable men. Might be worse than men who wear cargo shorts.— Ashley StClair 🇺🇸 (@stclairashley) April 14, 2019
And of course, Twitter wasn’t having it. For a Trump supporter to pass judgment on anybody is a bold move.
I think it’s cool that a piece of art can invoke that kind of emotional reaction in someone, regardless of how you feel about it. Let people enjoy things, no one said you had to date this guy.— Drew Gooden (@drewisgooden) April 16, 2019
Looks like a tweet from an undateable women if you ask me— Alissa Violet (@AlissaViolet) April 17, 2019
Remember boys, if your really passionate about something don't be going around showing that emotions about it. That's an undateable quality 🙃— Geektron (@Geektron3000) April 16, 2019
???? someone’s happiness bothers you??? please leave this planet— hush (@BlameHush) April 16, 2019
Do you.... feel better? Because clearly you have your own internal issues if you went out of your way to post about this guy doing nothing but minding his business and being excited about something. This was super ugly and uncalled for. Pls place yourself in “undateable” category— hailie 🍓 (@hailiebarber) April 16, 2019
Imagine being this put off by someone being well and truly HAPPY about something. Have you ever felt that kind of joy in your whole life? Dude’s way better off being put in the “undateable” pile by someone who could never respect and share the things that make him happy. Fuck off— Lady Emma of House Skies (@EmmaSkies) April 15, 2019
I will invite u on my reality show and then dunk on u while wearing cargo shorts and a Kylo ren tee it will be sick do u like basketball— Garrett Russell (@SilentGarrett) April 16, 2019
Someone: *is happy*— Sweaty Benson (@MateNain) April 15, 2019
You: how can I make this about me?
Please note: you’re mocking someone for being happy about something. I wouldn’t date someone who thinks the way you’ve illustrated that you do in this tweet. I would date someone who’s so passionate about something it makes them emotional.— Alanah Pearce (@Charalanahzard) April 15, 2019
