Utterly Stupid Group Claims Its Boycott of Star Wars - The Force Awakens Has Costs Disney Millions

Oh yeah, Disney is worried to death about it right now, I'm sure!

An utterly DUMB group calling itself Return of Kings is boycotting the new Star Wars movie, and have incredulously estimated that it has costs Disney $4.2 million in tickets sale. The reason why they are calling for a boycott of the movie?

The group called for a boycott of the hit sci-fi film because they had identified the film as “SJW propaganda”. SJW stands for “Social Justice Warrior” and it’s a term used in certain corners of the internet to describe people who stand up for and defend equal rights online. 

The problem with ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, according to Return of Kings, is its “non-white and female agenda”, ie its lead characters - Rey and Finn, played by Daisy Ridley and John Boyega - are not white men.

Now people, let's examine this just a little bit, shall we? The movie industries have been dominated, D-O-M-I-N-A-T-E-D all these years by "white men"! In fact, just look at the movies released this year! How many of those were lead off by "white men"?

So now along comes a movie in which the leads are not "white men". So they complain?  This is like a neighborhood inundated by steak houses, and then suddenly a vegetarian restaurant pops up and people complain about it not serving meat?!

This is not social justice. This is social stupidity. My pet fish has more sense and sensibility than these clowns.

And by the way.....

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ is in cinemas now and it looks set to topple ‘Avatar’ as the highest-grossing movie of all time. Looks like that boycott’s really working out for them.
