Disney Accuses Star Wars Fans of Racism for Thinking New Character Sucks

On Friday, Obi-Wan Kenobi’s new Star Wars series debuted on Disney+ with its first two episodes. Like the previously hyped series The Mandalorian, and The Book of Boba Fett respectively, Kenobi was a huge success. This was actually the highest-rated opening of any series on Disney+ in its history.

The Star Wars saga’s success in opening yet another hit series was overshadowed again by racism accusations and Disney’s woke culture.

I was more nervous about the Kenobi series than Mandalorian or Fett. They could have done more wrong than they did with the series, and they didn’t have the same writing and directing staff as the previous two series. Yes, I still have a Disney+ subscription, despite its rampant wokeism. This is because I didn’t outgrow my Star Wars geeky nature, which I inherited from my son.

This difficult decision has resulted in superior entertainment. However, Kenobi was the one I went in with, and I watched them closely in anticipation of their mistakes. I repeated over and over, “Please don’t suck. Please don’t suck.” You can skip the whole episode critique, which didn’t really suck. Instead, we can focus on the character Third Sister Reva (a human black woman), which will be relevant in a moment. Reva is a Sith who is part of the Inquisitor Team, which is gathering any Jedis left in the galaxy for torture, interrogation, and death. Reva is the “bad guy” and plays a prominent part in the new series.

According to reports, Reva’s actress, Moses Ingram, claimed that she was subject to vile and racist comments via Instagram about her performance. The official Star Wars social media channels responded by posting messages condemning Ingram’s performance and stating that racism is not allowed in Star Wars. Ewen MacGregor, Kenobi’s star, posted a video message.

Many fans responded to these messages by clapping back that the Reva character was badly written and poorly acted by Ingram as well as having ridiculous digital effects.

It has become a whole thing.

This statement initially seemed to suggest that anyone who disapproved of the new character or the acting of the writer must be racist. Disney claims that Ingram received racist remarks on her Instagram posts.

Ingram, who made her Disney Plus debut on Friday as Reva Sevander, one of Darth Vader’s inquisitors charged with hunting down Jedi — described a torrent on Instagram of racist and threatening messages. One message said her “days were numbered” while another called her a “diversity employee.” Others used the n-word.

The Hollywood Reporter provided more details, stating that Ingram had posted a story on Instagram (which is now expired and cannot be seen).

She shared several of the most horrendous online messages directed at her on Instagram Stories, including the N-word.

After sharing the pain and suffering she has endured, Ingram stated that “there’s nothing anyone can do about it.” “There is nothing anyone can do to stop this hatred. It makes me question why I am even here, stating that this is happening. “I don’t know.”

She said, “The thing I find bothersome is the feeling within of me that no one has ever told me about, but that feeling that I must shut up and accept it, that it is something I have to smile and bear.” But I’m not like that. I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who has shown up in the comments and other places I won’t be able to place myself. To the rest of you, I’m just being weird.

I haven’t seen the Instagram story since it expired so I cannot speak to the use of the n-word. However, calling her “your days are over” and calling them a “diversity employee” speaks more to the quality and culture of the series and Disney’s woke culture than the supposed racism of the commenters.

The context is important here, as wokesters are unwilling to admit it. Star Wars fans were quick to rebut the racism allegations. Here are some excerpts from the Facebook post.

Many also reminded Disney of how they treated another Star Wars actress who was subject to vile comments on social media.

Star Wars geek that I am, I hope Reva becomes more relatable and Disney stops calling people racist if they don’t like the show.
