Angry, racist Twitter users are claiming that the new Star Wars promotes ‘white genocide’

TODAY is one of the biggest days in history for Star Wars fans across the world, with tickets for the premiere going on sale this morning and a new trailer appearing later today.

But it seems a bunch of racist, white supremacists are ruining it all by kicking up a storm on social media due to the discovery that a lead-role is being played by an African-British actor, 23 year-old John Boyega.

Overnight the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII began trending, with people claiming that the movie is “anti-white”, even going as far as saying that the film promotes “white genocide”.
