Star Wars author E.K. Johnston declared that a Bounding Into Comics livestream with One America News Network host Jack Posobiec would “hurt people.”
If you are unfamiliar with Johnston, she was employed by Star Wars, Lucasfilm, and Disney to write a number of Star Wars novels.
In 2016, she published the Ahsoka novel, which tells the story of the former Jedi Padawan to Anakin Skywalker that takes place between The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels.
She would be tapped to write a second Star Wars novel, this one titled Queen’s Shadow. The book focused on Padme Admidala and took place in the events between The Phantom Menace and Attack of the Clones.
Johnston also wrote the the short story By Whatever Sun alongside Ahsoka Tano voice actor Ashley Eckstein. The story was published in the anthology From a Certain Point of View back in 2017. The story focuses on the character Miara Larte, who was previously introduced in the Ahsoka novel.
Johnston not only claimed the livestream would hurt people, but she also revealed her intention to want to stop the stream.
She wrote on Twitter, “I don’t know how to stop this, but I *know* it’s going to hurt people.”
You can watch this dangerous live stream right here and judge for yourself on whether it “hurt people.”
E.K. Johnston’s desire to try and stop a livestream and her claim that it will be hurtful comes after the official Star Wars account supporter The Star Wars High Republic host Krystina Arielle after she called white people racists.
Arielle infamously tweeted, “White people: f***ing stop it. Your racism won’t save you. Your ignorance is not an excuse.”
She added, “White conservatives please stop invoking racism like you give a s***. You don’t. You just want to be able to say ‘what about’ when someone calls out 45 and his blatant racism.”
In another tweet she wrote, “Just a reminder that White Women are just as complicit in the upholding and enforcing White Supremacy.”
In another one she wrote, “I don’t have an ego. I am also not a bully. I have said repeatedly I don’t owe White people a conversation about racism. I’ve been living with it. They’ve been doling it out. I am not entering a conversation where people are intent on not understanding me.”
The official Star Wars Twitter account would then support Arielle and her declaration that white people are racist.
They wrote, “Our Star Wars community is one of hope and inclusivity. We do not stand for bullying and racism. We support Krystina Arielle.”
One has to wonder why Disney and Star Wars are supporting people like this, who are openly calling white people racists and declaring that watching a livestream will hurt people.
