You just HATE to see it… Well, we LOVE to see it, I suppose. Star Wars is so messed up!
The official Star Wars Facebook account recently posted an image condemning violence against Asian-American Pacific Islanders during the Lunar New Year or the Chinese New Year. Fans responded to the post by calling them out for their hypocrisy and double standards noting they actively support the Chinese government that enslaves our fellow human beings.
The Facebook account posted, “The celebration of the Lunar New Year has been marred by the continued wave of violence against Asian-American Pacific Islanders across the United States. We have spent the last week learning and listening to our friends, colleagues, and partners who are most affected.”
It continues, “We stand with our AAPI family and want to amplify the voices of organizations that fight for civil rights and stand against hate: Asian Americans Advancing Justice – AAJC and Stop AAPI Hate.”
The post concludes, “Please join us in supporting the important work they’re doing in fighting racism.”
