James Gunn Tells STAR WARS Trolls To Seek Therapy

Star Wars trolls are turning fandom into an ugly and nasty place. It’s hard to see a franchise that I love so much go through a constant bombardment of angry and hateful fans. We can have civil conversations and discussions about the things we like and don’t like about the direction of the franchise without resorting to bullying or wishing death on people.

Early today we heard about the actor who played Jar Jar Binks, Ahmed Best, and how he revealed that the backlash he got from the film almost drove him to kill himself. Then there’s Kelly Marie Tran who was recently bullied off social media and director Rian Johnson is definitely taking his fair share of punches.

Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has some words for the Star Wars trolls and he straight up tells them they need to go and seek some therapy. Gunn’s comments were sparked by Best’s tweet about being driven to the brink of suicide. Gunn says:

Some people take movies too seriously, What do you think?
