Oh, so you are telling me you “went out” and “partied” with “friends” and “loved ones” to “celebrate New Year’s Eve” final night time, and now you’re perplexed about why John Boyega is trending on Twitter? First of all, that is a flex. Congrats to you.

Also, boy do we have some catching up to do.(Increase of the Skywalkerspoilers forward.)For context, Boyega has been very free and candid with supporters and the press in the direct-up to this most up-to-dateStar Warsinstallment, in a way which is sudden from a participant in a big Disney output. Initially, hisStar Warsscript leaked to eBay and he entirely owned up to it and joked about it onGreat Early morning The united states.Then, he explained toHypebeastthat Rian Johnson’sThe Final Jediwas “a little bit iffy for me,” describing that he did not “agree with a good deal of the choices” in the 2017 movie. He also seemed to get in touch with Kelly Marie Tran “weak” and “not mentally strong” in aSelectionjob interview that touched on harmful trolling, though he afterwards clarified his comments and apologized.

Then, on Tuesday, Twitter person @crogmen posted a screenshot of a single of John Boyega’s Instagram opinions, composing, “bro you re extremly disgusting and gross also fucking disrespectful…you simply cannot be this jealous of adam driver dude as a black girl im fucking ashamed that someone like you represented us in star wars.” It displays Boyega responding to a caption about Reylo (the ship name for Kylo Ren and Rey) with the comment: “@heyfabrice it’s not about who she kisses but who finally lays the pipe. You are a genius.” (The account that posted the first Insta caption is established to private.)

Supporters on Twitter have been disturbed by the language Boyega utilized to joke about his character sleeping with Daisy Ridley’s, who is intended to be an empoweringStar Warsfigure for young, female admirers. Boyega engaged with the tweet not by apologizing for the deeply un-Disney-like way of crudely sexualizing female Jedi and intergalactic function design Rey, but by responding: “You clearly do not know the variance involving a fictional entire world and fact.”

Twitter person @FaberLima1 tweeted that Boyega “better stop” as he’s “worsening his picture,” so Boyega broke out the cry-laughing emojis. Totally brutal. It was the position of no return. He was standing up for what he believed in: tweeting about a Disney character performed by himself laying pipe in an additional Disney character played by Daisy Ridley.

A pair of hrs later on, however not finished baiting the Reylo enthusiasts, Boyega tweeted out a photoset of Kylo and Rey combating with the caption “Star Wars romance,” suggesting that their violent creepy romance wasn’t value defending.
