Boyega Thanks Fans, Responds to Critics through Instagram

33 comments

By: Lillian Skye

John Boyega responded to fans' comments through a picture that he posted via Instagram on Saturday afternoon.

Star Wars fans had a glimpse into the 22-year-old actor's character in the opening shot of the first The Force Awakens teaser that was released on Friday. His character was seen on a desert-like planet wearing Stormtooper armor, prompting both positive and negative comments from Star Wars fans.

While the majority of the comments were positive, the few that were negative were inappropriate enough to bring attention to them. The positive comments revolved around the diverse cast of the latest Star Wars film and fans' excitement to find out that Boyega's character may be playing a Stormtrooper.  Negative comments focused on Boyega's race, as people were unjustifiably upset that a black man was seen in Stormtrooper armor.

See Boyega's response below:

Countless Star Wars fans have rallied behind John Boyega and are eager to see the direction that The Force Awakens takes his character when the film is released in December 2015.
