STAR WARS Fans Rally Around Wookieepedia As STAR WARS Trolls Attack Them Over THE ACOLYTE

So, here’s the thing… I like it Star Wars! I grew up with this franchise, it’s been a part of my life for as long as I can remember! Even though I like most of what has come out of the franchise over the years, that doesn’t mean I’ll like everything. This goes for all fans of all types of franchises.

Just because The Acolyte isn’t clicking with me doesn’t mean I’m going to start threatening people and others Star Wars fans are thrilled.

Of course, I’ll share what I don’t like just like I did with Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Boba Fett bookand the sequel trilogy, but I won’t stalk and attack anyone who loves those things.

The Acolyte is certainly dividing fans and as we are seeing, things have gone too far with some hardcore trolls out there bullying people.

I just learned that these trolls are hunting down Wookieepedia as the website’s authors face bullying, abuse and death threats following the show’s controversial fourth episode.

This all comes after Wookieepedia updated Ki-Adi-Mundi’s page to detail his appearance The Acolyte and in response to trolling, Star Wars fans rallied to the website with #WeStandWithWookieepedia.

It’s okay to not like something, but what’s happening here is not okay. It’s crazy to me that some people take things to this ridiculous level. As someone who has been threatened and bullied by people online, including people who say they are Star Wars fans, it sucks and hurts.

There is already so much hate in this world, the least we can do is not bring that hate to the level of the Dark Side in Star Wars, which is supposed to be an escape from it all!

Like I said, I love Star Wars and there are so many things to celebrate about the franchise and its community. People need to be reminded of the classic Bill and Ted quote: “Be excellent to one another.”
