    Star Wars nerds need to get the hell over themselves and follow one of two paths (maybe both)

    1) Come to grips with the notion that no movie will ever please everyone.

    2) Make their own movies since they seem to know so week exactly how a story should play out.

    I lied. There is a third item, but it’s not an option. It’s a requirement.

    3) Grow up and act like mature adults for once in their lives.

      Or, alternately, writers could realize that criticism is a natural by-product of creation, and not blame quote-unquote “toxic fans” because they are worried about a backlash that hasn’t even happened.

  2. Anytime a company calls fans “toxic,” that means they can’t handle any form of criticism from their fans (or customers), and they become toxic themselves. Dismissing people as haters, racists, sexists, bigots will not make anything better. Let people say what they want to say. If you don’t agree with them, then agree to disagree with them. Don’t get combative and throw insults, especially if you are a major company.
