Star Wars actress receives racist backlash from Internet trolls but Disney has her back

It seems that in a galaxy far far away there is still racism since that is what actress Moses Ingram has been facing when Star Wars fans have lashed out at her, and Black people in general for being in the Obi-Wan Kenobi series since the trolls buy everything from the movies and series, however, they can’t conceive the idea that there are Black people in the universe.

Disney has her back

Disney has done the right thing and stood with the actress when she received criticism, but this is not the first time that Star Wars fans have had this type of behavior

It only took two episodes for things to go bad

The first two episodes of Kenobi featured Ingram as a bad a** Jedi hunter and a no-nonsense antagonist that has a chip on her shoulder specifically for Luke’s master and is looking for him across the galaxy and even in the Outer-rim where the empire gets to do what it wants since there most of it is a lawless territory

Star Wars Fandom takes it to the extreme

When the episodes were aired, the Third Sister used her Instagram platform to expose the hundreds of anti-Black and misogynist messages she has received from fans, while thanking fans for their engagement with the series she also mentioned that hate is unnecessary “because there’s nothing anybody can do about this.”

She shared a very clear message

“There’s nothing anybody can do to stop this hate, and so I question what my purpose is in even being here in front of you saying that this is happening,” Ingram continued. “I think the thing that bothers me is that like sort of this feeling that I’ve had inside of myself – which no one has told me – but this feeling of like ‘I’ve just got to shut up and take it,’ you know?”

Just after Ingram used her Instagram account as to talk about her experience the official Star Wars Twitter account shared a post backing her up and pretty much saying that her character is there and their decisions will not be affected by racist internet trolls.
