The Most Ridiculous Fan Reactions To ‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’

Star Wars: The Last Jedi

With each passing year, there seems to be one or two movies that are analyzed and complained about non-stop until another one comes and takes its place. Man of Steel was that movie until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice became that movie until Justice League became that movie until this past weekend – as Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now officially that movie.

After the boom of social media, people have the ability to share their very strong opinions and thoughts on movies and have it seen by people everywhere. While Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a massive critical and financial success, there’s a very vocal group of people who do not like the movie at all – and are losing their minds on Twitter.

In case you weren’t aware, there will be major spoilers for Star Wars: The Last Jedi ahead! 

It’s gotten so bad that a hashtag was started for the film itself, which reads: #NotMyStarWars. Yes, you read that correctly. Here are some of the more memorable tweets below:

Some began mocking the hashtag in tweets, though:

Whatever your personal thoughts are on the movie, it’s hard to deny that there’s currently a divide among fans about the movie. Director Rian Johnson has responded to the criticism by saying:

“I’m aware through my own experience that, first of all, the fans are so passionate, they care so deeply — sometimes they care very violently at me on Twitter. But it’s because they care about these things, and it hurts when you’re expecting something specific and you don’t get it from something that you love. It always hurts, so I don’t take it personally if a fan reacts negatively and lashes out on me on Twitter. That’s fine. It’s my job to be there for that. Like you said, every fan has a list of stuff they want a Star Wars movie to be and they don’t want a Star Wars movie to be. You’re going to find very few fans out there whose lists line up.”

With the way toxic fandom is these days, I’m not sure many directors are even going to want to take on the challenge of such an angry group of people, but hey – everyone is different.

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is currently playing in theaters everywhere.
