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.
