Patton Oswalt: Racist ‘Star Wars’ backlash is ‘depressing’
When the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer blew nerds’ brains back in November, racist buzz soon surrounded British actor John Boyega, who featured prominently in the clip.
Boyega, cool guy that he is, fired back with “get used to it” to those who weren’t happy about seeing a black Stormtrooper. But, comedian Patton Oswalttells Vulture that kind of ignorance is truly disheartening.
Patton also sounded off on Selma, David Oyelowo’s Oscar snub and why Hollywood is in trouble.
