Star Wars Boba Fett’s “Slave 1” Ship Gets “Woke” & New Name
Political correctness continues its unbridled march on a dangerous, slippery course.
It’s as though certain people are looking high and low to be offended about any and everything.
A major University recently removed what they called “a racist rock” from their campus.
Christopher Columbus statues; George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and countless others have also been deemed to be racist and unacceptable.
The latest example is the Star Wars “Slave 1” spaceship.
Yes, for more than 40 years, Star Wars bounty hunter Boba Fett’s starship has been known as "Slave 1.”
Its now suddenly deemed to be unacceptable and the name is reported to be getting changed.
“Slave 1” first appeared on “The Empire Strikes Back” Star Wars movie in the 1980s.
There has been no public outcry whatsoever regarding the name “Slave 1.”
Back in June, Disney ordered Lego to stop selling its model of the ship as "Slave 1," Breitbart News was the first to report this.
The ship model was later sold as "Boba Fett Starship."
Earlier, Legos actually stopped the selling of The White House and any police-themed Legos.
No official explanation has been offered by Disney for the name change.
There are new promotional materials that are showing Boba Fett's ship is being referred to as "Firespray," Bounding Into Comics reported.
Further, Disney has served notice to fans that they will see several spaceships in an upcoming comic book series, "Star Wars: War of The Bounty Hunters."
One of those ships will be called "Boba Fett and Firespray."
Actor Mark Anthony Austin, who played Boba Fett in the 1997 Star Wars Special Edition film, is not happy about this decision in the slightest least.
Austin is openly speaking out against it.
"Not buying. not conforming to the Mouse, no siree. Not gonna happen,” he wrote on Twitter in June, according to Bounding Into Comics. "When I was growing up I loved Disney. No more."
In a separate tweet, Austin wrote, "I cannot put into words how much I love this spaceship. It’s like Han has Chewie. I’ve always had Slave 1. You cannot just change that."
All people of good faith are against slavery. It is a horrifically bad chapter of American history.
However, the cancel culture, “woke” crowd is currently out of control in America.
