actress Moses Ingram was the victim of racist insults after the first episodes of the Star Wars series

In a video posted Wednesday, June 1 by actor Ewan McGregor, who plays the title role of the Jedi Master in the new Star Wars series Obi-Wan Kenobi, the first few seconds of his message suggested that all the lights were green. The British actor begins by congratulating the audience success of the first episodes of the series broadcast on the Disney + streaming platform on May 27: “This weekend, Star Wars fans made Obi-Wan Kenobi the best launch ever seen on Disney +, and for that I say thank you to the Star Wars community.”.

But Ewan McGregor quickly switched to much less gratifying information. 29-year-old American actress Moses Ingram has indeed been the victim of racism by claimed fans of the famous saga. “However, some members of the Star Wars fan base attacked Moses Ingram on the internet with racist attacks. And this morning I broke my heart.” comments Ewan McGregor.

The actor who plays Jedi Obi-Wan Kenobi has mostly insisted that the entire Star Wars team supports Moses Ingram. “Moses is a brilliant actress, a great woman and she’s fantastic in the show. It really hurts my stomach to see what’s going on. As the lead actor and executive producer of the show, I support her. “We support Moses. If you’re sending racist messages, you’re not a Star Wars fan for me.” continues Ewan McGregor.

The defense organized. Several messages have been posted on Star Wars’ official Twitter account denouncing the attacks. “We are proud to welcome Moses Ingram into the Star Wars family and are excited about the story surrounding Reva (his character). To all those who want to discredit it, we have only one thing to say: we resist. “can be read on the franchise’s Twitter account.

Actress Moses Ingram, who in the series Obi-Wan Kenobi plays the role of Reva, a member of the Inquisitors, a unit that chases Jedis across the galaxy, and also spoke on her Instagram account. In a storyshe thanks those who support her. “Love is stronger”.
