Dudes got burned worse than Anakin
For some reason, the latest Star Wars movie has generated a lot of controversy among fans. Some of them are mad that girls were allowed into the club, and they got handled online by the film’s cast. Others are very upset at what the movie does to their beloved Luke Skywalker. But the largest outcry seems to be about the new force powers multiple characters display throughout the film.
Unfortunately for the naysayers, those new powers are so new after all, and when they tussled with the film’s writer/director, Rian Johnson, he brushed them off like a straight-up force ghost.
This so-called “controversy” has been floating around since the film’s release, and if Johnson hadn’t been aware of it, Twitter took care of that, when some pouty fanboy @’d the director to voice his displeasure with the movie’s plot machinations.https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/948209642131329024
Still, the director stayed quiet as more fanboys got vocal.https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/949165205317214208
The dude has mad patience.https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/949543639495135232
Eventually, however, it got to be too much, and just the other day, Johnson sent out a series of tweets, letting a handful of photos do the talking for him.
First, he asked Twitter to look.
Then he got down to business, first showing us his bookshelf…https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398119185256449
Which includes some Jedi-related texts…https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398199694770176
Like the filmmaker he is, he built suspense as he homed in on a particular title…https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398249346936833
People began to catch on:
THE SACRED TEXTS!!!— Sad Kylo Ren (@KyloIsSad) January 19, 2018
As Johnson continued to milk it…https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398324760563712
Finally unleashing a force-assisted knockout blow, closing up on a passage from the book that explains the “new” force powers on display in The Last Jedi.https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398403986731008
And then he slowly faded back into the bushes…https://twitter.com/jetpack/status/954398483112275969
Without even saying a word.
Twitter appreciated the slowly delivered burn.

Ah, poor padawans. You come at a Jedi, you best not miss.
