On Monday the Star Wars Twitter account wished the lovely Kelly Marie Tran a happy birthday.
And happy birthday indeed.
But what the Star Wars twitter account failed to do, was wish James Earl Jones, the voice of Darth Vader, a happy birthday as well. Because today is his birthday too.
So fans had to do it themselves.
So why would they ignore James Earl Jones? Well, I have my suspicions.
That’s right. According to the Houston Chronicle, James Earl Jones is a Republican celebrity.
9. James Earl Jones
The famed voice of Darth Vader has spoken out against the Obama Administration and it is well known that James Earl Jones is a steadfast conservative.
So guess why they didn’t wish him happy birthday.
Could Lucasfilm really be this petty? Given what I’ve learned about the politically obsessed wackos currently infesting Lucasfilm in the 3 years of running this blog, I’d say it’s almost a certainty.
