Trevor Noah Rips Fans Boycotting ‘Star Wars’ Over Diversity: ‘Stop Complaining, Racists’ (Video)

”Daily Show“ host promises John Boyega’s leading man is more concerned with the evil Empire than Fox’s ”Empire“

Trevor Noah had some fun on Tuesday mocking a minority of “Star Wars” fans who are crying about reverse racism over the upcoming sequel’s diverse casting — or as the “Daily Show” host called it, the “intergalactic affirmative action.”

“Stop complaining, racists,” Noah said. “You had your ‘Star Wars’ movie already,” revealing a photo of much-maligned CGI character Jar Jar Binks.

Noah then continued the sight gag, saying Stormtrooper Finn (leading man John Boyega) — who happens to be black — is currently more concerned with the Lucasfilm franchise’s evil Empire than Fox’s hit hip-hop soap opera, “Empire.”

The new Comedy Central host then took a moment to make fun of “Force Awakens” writer/director J.J. Abrams‘ Twitter habits, before passing the segment off to senior fantasy culture correspondent Jordan Klepper, who kept the nerd rage flowing.
