Disney backs the racist host of their new Star Wars show.
Tweets by Arielle surfaced of her speaking about the role white people play in upholding racism.
She then started receiving racist abuse, and accusations of being racist.
But Star Wars tweeted in support of her, stating: “Our Star Wars community is one of hope and inclusivity”.
Ms Arielle was recently announced as the host of The High Republic Show, an upcoming web series about Star Wars: The High Republic, a new subseries of the Star Wars media franchise.
She came under attack after social media users resurfaced numerous old tweets, mostly from last year when protests were taking place around the world in support of Black Lives Matter.
In some of her past tweets, Arielle references white people while giving opinions on systemic racism. In one, she states: “Just a reminder that white women are just as complicit in upholding and enforcing white supremacy.”
