The internet is filled with some of the craziest Star Wars fans, but a few (who aren’t even worthy of being called “fans”) have flat out body-shamed 61-year-old actor Temuera Morrison, best known for his role as deadly bounty hunter Boba Fett.
The New Zealand actor and proud representative for ripped people everywhere, Morrison posted a hilarious revenge video on social media:
#BobaFett behind the scenes: someone called me Boba Fat so I thought I’d do something about it. 😂 Thanks my trainer and bro Jen Kuo Sung.”

When looking at the size of Morrison’s biceps, the 61-year-old clone is sporting bigger “guns” than most 20-year-olds, especially after obliterating a brigade of stormtroopers in The Mandalorian season two or defeating the vicious Cad Bane (Corey Burton) on Tatooine in The Book of Boba Fett.
The Instagram video has gained nearly 150,000 videos in just 24 hours, with thousands of fans supporting Morrison, his workout endeavors, and his bravery to stand up to cyberbullies.

Nonetheless, Morrison was subject to brutal backlash from numerous Star Wars communities and audiences over the controversial season finale of The Book of Boba Fett.
With Din Djarin/The Mandalorian (Pedro Pascal) scoring higher episode ratings/viewership on the new Star Wars story streaming series, many were making fun of Temuera Morrison for having his show hijacked by fan-favorites Grogu, Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson), and Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) character.
