'Star Wars: The Last Jedi' Negative Buzz Amplified by Russian Trolls, Study Finds
"Did Star Wars: The Last Jedi destroy the franchise and permanently rupture the fandom as its critics (melodramatically) have accused it of doing? According to a new academic paper by researcher Morten Bay, the answer is clearly no.
The paper, titled Weaponizing The Haters: The Last Jedi and the strategic politicization of pop culture through social media manipulation, examines the online response to 2017’s Last Jedi, a movie that has come to be considered controversial amongst the larger fanbase of the franchise.
Bay suggests that reputation may not be earned, and instead “finds evidence of deliberate, organized political influence measures disguised as fan arguments,” as he writes in the paper’s abstract. He continues, “The likely objective of these measures is increasing media coverage of the fandom conflict, thereby adding to and further propagating a narrative of widespread discord and dysfunction in American society."
As a 40 year fan of Star Wars, I can positively tell you that this article is absolute bullshit! It is hard for me to remember ever reading anything more asinine than this article. The first movie of this new trilogy I bought on dvd, watched it one time and immediately thru it behind the entertainment center in utter disdain! I boycotted the second movie of the trilogy that this article is about, however I have watched snippets of it on youtube. May 7 warned me to not even go near this movie and he was right!
So, due to my negative feedback on youtube this makes me a Russian troll now. Should I be in fear of being investigated by the FBI? This so called "movie" went entirely against Star Wars canon. Don't even get me started on the plot line ffs! Blaming the absolute failure of this "movie" on Russian trolls is beyond repute. Rian Johnson is a cockmaster and Kathleen Kennedy is a cuntmistress. May they both burn in hell for what they have done of which I consider tantamount to a war crime. My head is about to explode, I have to go now.
General....wait until Star Wars: Chewbacca becomes ChewBecky is released!!!
Hope this cheers you up a bit -
It doesn’t help that Disney has infinite money, so they can afford to make shitty film after shitty film, for them it dosnt matter. (sigh)

Disney and their SJW agenda ruined Star Wars.
