Resistance Defeats Racists in A Galaxy Not Far Away

Someone needs to get a life.

While they’re at it, they might want to get a brain as well.

And let’s not stop there, how about a heart?

The Evil Empire took over the Wookieepedia fan page of Rose Tico-played by the first woman of color to be featured in the Star Wars galaxy, Vietnamese American Kelly Marie Tran.

Newsweek reports the fanpage was filled with racist vile. Tico’s name was changed to Ching Chong Wing Tong. Her hometown suddenly became Ching Chong China. The Evil Empire which invented fake news added a fictitious quote to Rose. “Heil Hitler and I don’t know why I was casted (The Evil Empire apparently needs to go back to school) in a good movie like Star Wars. 

A check of Wookieepedia shows the Resistance has reclaimed its site and the disgusting edits have been removed.

Good always wins over evil.

Unfortunately, as any Star Wars fan knows by now, the Evil Empire doesn’t die easily. They are relentless.

Next Shark reports on the next wave of attacks.  They are now attacking Tran’s physical attributes. As most can see, Tran is beautiful on the inside and out, but the terrorists can’t see past their noses and their nativist view of the world.

Some of the comments that followed are even worse. I’m not going to waste space repeating them here.

In the end, their toxic and warped thinking has been overcome by the voice of reason.

In less than a week, The Last Jedi has taken in $450 million in the box office in just the U.S. alone.

(Correction: An earlier version of this story misidentified Kelly’s first name. We apologize)

  1. RE: Resistance Defeats Racists in a Galaxy Not Far away: Please check the 2 photos from this report. The photo on the left looks like Grace Park from Hawaii 5-O and the one on the right is Rose Marie Tran.

    • RE: Resistance Defeats Racists in a Galaxy Not Far Away: That’s correct. I believe that’s what the author of the Tweet intended

  2. RE: Resistance Defeats Racists in a galaxy Not Far Away: Sick Twitter person…Karma isn’t nice all the time but it’s fair
