Toxic fans and Star Wars go hand-in-hand like sand on Tattooine. It’s always incredibly satisfying to see this entitled subset of the franchise’s fandom get taken down a notch and you’re not going to be much of a better take down than the one dished out by Freddie Prince Jr.
The actor appeared on Jeff Dye’s Friendship Podcast and went on an epic Star Wars rant that needs to be enshrined as an all-time great example on explaining lore while smacking some sense into toxic fans.
Over the course of three-ish minutes, Freddie cuts through the crap and calls out people for not understanding the franchise is for kids:
“I did a ‘Star Wars’ cartoon, so even I get hate from ‘Star Wars’ fans. And I’m like, ‘Look, dawg, you’re just made the franchise is not aging with you. But that ain’t how it works. The first one was for f***ing kids. The second three were for different f***ing kids. And this one is just for kids.”
But the pièce de résistance is when he takes toxic fans to task over things like getting “pissed off that Han Solo gave the Millennium Falcon to a girl.“
He also gives a surprisingly in-depth breakdown of the things Star Wars fans get wrong about the Force, the mythology behind it when George Lucas created it and how folks seem to forget how it’s all about “balance” rather than the flashy jumping, lightning stuff everyone focuses on.
Words don’t do the epic rant justice so please just watch the entire thing yourself because it’ll be the best three minutes you’ll spend all day. Plus you get a huge serving of Freddie Prince Jr. dropping F-bombs left and right, which is just an extra cherry on top.
Having starred in four seasons of Star Wars Rebels and been taught all things Star Wars by the franchise’s guru Dave Filoni, who in turn learned everything from George Lucas himself, Freddie has more than a leg to stand on when it comes to saying this stuff.
So when Freddie Prince Jr. tells all those toxic fans out there to “learn your Greek mythology,” everyone should sit up and listen, especially the puffy-chested bros who are already cobbling together complaints about Star Wars: Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker what that film comes out.
