Acclaimed director J.J. Abrams is set to direct Star Wars: Episode IX and has a few words to say about the online sexist and misogynstic trolls attacking Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Back in December, an Alt-Right group claimed resposibility for purposely lowering the Rotten Tomatoes audience score and criticized the film and blamed all of its problems for "introducing more female characters into the franchise's universe." 

J.J. Abrams made it clear when it comes to the online hate this film has received from sexists and misogynistic fanboys. "Their problem isn't Star Wars, their problem is being threatened." He continued: "If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars. You can probably look at the first movie that George did and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The Internet seems to be made for that."

He does raise a lot of valid points. J.J. Abrams also said that he is very excited to continue the adventures of the beloved characters such as fan favorite Rey in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode IX. What did you think of the director's comments? Sound off below!
