Liberals Call on Star Wars Actor to Apologize for 'Insensitive' Race Comments.
Why can't SJW leftists leave Star Wars alone? Whether it's a veteran, male, acting legend getting paid more than a female rookie or outrage over a co-star just so happening to have read Ayn Rand, it's just one complaint after another.
Which brings us to John Boyega, who played Finn. He won an award and said this...
“To complain about what is going on is not going to benefit us,” said Boyega, whose career hit global prominence after playing disaffected stormtrooper Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
“Be the change you want to be,” he said. “Be the change. And continue and focus.”
"Black people! stop complaining! Be the change you want to be!" @JohnBoyega @screennation #blacktwitter16 https://t.co/uD7LYCyKsl— reGina (@reGina) 1458431522.0
Nope. Can't have that...
"John Boyega apologized for what he said and we let it go, but if Daisy Ridley did that, her career would be canned!" ...Couple things.— Justin Carter (@Justin Carter) 1458573180.0
@JohnBoyega dismissing legitimate grievances as "complaining" because your narrative has been different? Should've just kept quiet.— zathan (@zathan) 1458440146.0
Male privilege isn't why John Boyega isn't facing more backlash. The fact that he actually apologized is what did it. Come on now.— ❄Mikki Kendall❄ (@❄Mikki Kendall❄) 1458572975.0
That last tweet was where it started to get confusing, because people switched from race to male privilege for some reason.
Either way, you know what happens next...
But I do agree ! I didn't clarify. I was full of emotion receiving the award and just wanted to say that there was work to be done.— John Boyega (@John Boyega) 1458440948.0
This is why we can't have nice things.
Let me get this straight. SJW leftists complain that there aren't enough leading black actors in Hollywood (despite the fact that some of the highest paid leading men in Hollywood are black). Here, we have a young, articulate, black, leading man who's encouraging other young, black men to work hard and the response is... outrage?
Talk about a lost generation looking for a cause. Right now people are being burned alive in cages in the middle east, Christian dissidents are being forced to have abortions under the communist regime in North Korea, and American college students are raging over the fact that a black man made some albeit positive, but slightly insensitive comments to black people?!
Then again, this is the same generation that literally wants to do away with the First Amendment. See below.
