"Star Wars: The Force Awakens" opens in theaters on Dec. 18, but the blockbuster is already causing controversy.
According some folks on Twitter, the newest installment of the outer space franchise is promoting white genocide, and has earned the hashtag "#BoycottStarWarsVII," notes The Hollywood Reporter.
The hashtag started trending on Twitter on Oct. 18 because the main characters are not white, and the film is supposedly promoting multiculturalism.
Salon.com reports that some of the tweets by those offended by the alleged racism include:
SJWs complain about White artists "misappropriating" culture created by blacks but then celebrate a non-White Star Wars.
#BoycottStarWarsVII because it is anti-white propaganda promoting #whitegenocide.
#BoycottStarWarsVII If white people aren't wanted in Star Wars, then our money must not be either.
#BoycottStarWarsVII because white children deserve wholesome movies, not more PC anti-white diversity crap.
#BoycottStarWarsVII blacks have taken it all from us: our belongings, our lives &now our films. ban black actors from invading white spaces.
Any of you guys want your daughters breeding with black Stormtroopers? No? didn't think so. #BoycottStarWarsVII
Apparently, the boycott failed as pr-sales of the film crashed several online sites on Oct. 19, according to Deadline.com.
