Making fun of social justice, Star Wars version

Godfrey Elfwick regularly mocks social justice, and the guy is hilarious.

He managed to get invited onto the BBC and attack Star Wars for being racist and misogynist:

Referring to C-3PO and Darth Vader by the wrong names, he went on: “The gold robot – C-25 or whatever he’s called – is a camp, neurotic coward.

“The only main female ends up in a space bikini chained to a horny space slug.

“The main bad guy – what’s he called, Dark Raider? – is black, he has a deep voice, he listens to rap music – it’s just a really bad racial stereotype.”

Elfwick said the franchise “reeked of misogyny” and that film-makers Disney should stick to “strong feminist” films like The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast.

About peed my pants at that last sentence.

Here are two of his tweets:
