There's assholes and then there's these guys: https://makingstarwars.net/2018/06/give-us-legends-group-takes-credit-for-kelly-marie-tran-leaving-social-media/



...

...


...What the heck is wrong with these people?


Aside from the "why won't someone think of the poor white heterosexual males?!!?" cries whenever a show has a character that isn't one. They still complain about the "Legends" not being canon anymore despite it being the most sensible way to deal with the massive bloat of EU material in Star Wars. And it's not like even most of it is good material...

But really... Harassing people? "Spoiler Jihad?" This is not the behaviour of a sane person.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I do believe these are Lana's people.

Ironbite-love to see their perspective on things.

Now watch these guys try to take credit for it when Thrawn shows up in Episode 9.

(that's the rumor, anyway)

All these guys have convinced me is that I really regret not being more of a bully to the "outspoken, canon-emphasizing nerds" in high school and college.

Thrawn wouldn't really fit in Episode 9. Not with the plot they seem to be going with. Kylo is in charge now so unless Thrawn usurps power from the obviously unstable force user he'd be playing second fiddle. And that would clash with how they've been using Hux as a character.

Maybe Kylo Ren does a Darth Vader and betrays the newly-arrived Thrawn?  I dunno....he's already part of the "new canon" anyway, that much I know.

"show them what real Star Wars fans look like"

...horrible human beings who find the idea of a movie being made without pandering to them unbearable and a girl being onscreen without wearing a bikini an aberration? Is that the idea you want people to have of the fandom?

Jesus. If you think the EU is better than the sequel trilogy, an opinion you are 100% allowed to have... go read the fucking EU and don't watch the sequel trilogy? They didn't burn down every copy of the books, they're right there where you left them. Best of all, it involves no harassing people! you can be a better person and enjoy yourself by the simple method of not watching movies you don't like!

Even if they're overestimating the impact they've had or are just trying to claim they're more powerful than they really are, the fact that they're taking credit for this says a lot about them, none of it good.

And not only are they assholes, they're idiots too. Why the hell would they take credit for a "bot attack" on Rotten Tomatoes? That just lets Lucasfilm claim the poor audience reception is just the result of some bigots with too much time on their hands. It's almost enough to make me think this is some kind of joke or hoax, but then again, some scumbags really are that stupid.

1. When did Obama say that?

2. We didn't go to war against the Barbary states because they were Muslim. We fought them because they were holding our ships ransom and demanding we pay them tribute.

And then signed a treaty with them in which we specifically said we were not founded on the Christian religion.
Quote from: Jordan Duram
It doesn't concern you, Sister, that kind of absolutist view of the universe? Right and wrong determined solely by a single all-knowing, all powerful being whose judgment cannot be questioned and in whose name the most horrendous acts can be sanctioned without appeal?

Quote from: Supreme Court of Canada
Being required by someone else’s religious beliefs to behave contrary to one’s sexual identity is degrading and disrespectful.

A quick google search also says that actual republican representatives were reposting memes with the same fake quote on their facebook pages. Hell. I wouldn't be shocked if the one above was the exact thing being shared.
