Racist Star Wars Fans Want to #BoycottStarWarsVII Because It Promotes 'White Genocide'
I really wish we were kidding about this, but we're not. White supremacists (and a number of 4chan trolls) have started to jump on the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII on Twitter, because they're upset that J.J. Abrams is Jewish, and apparently think the fact that John Boyega is black is a sign that SJWs are conspiring to commit "white genocide." (Who even knew that was a thing?) It's already been taken over by people making fun of them, luckily, but the movement gathered a worrying amount of steam. We thought it was a joke about killing Stormtroopers at first, but no such luck.

It's amazing that all of these people don't realize that they're literally the goddamn Empire.





There is a shocking amount of anti-Semitism coming out, because apparently diverse casting makes J.J. Abrams "anti-white," rather than a decent and socially responsible human being: 








The fact that one of the protagonists is black is causing many psychic boo-boos:






And my favorite argument: Boycott Star Wars VII because it turned Han Solo into a "cuckold." Therefore #WhiteGenocide. (Um... what?)



But then there are the people who are appropriating the hashtag to make fun of terrible people, and restore our faith in humanity:












We'll see you at the white supremacist-free theaters on December 18!
