The official Star Wars Twitter account tweeted to help Krystina Arielle, the host of the upcoming Star Wars: The High Republic Show, after getting Badger online.
Tweets from Arielle surfaced talking about the job white socialmediagossips play in sustaining racism.
Our Star Wars community is one of hope and inclusivity. We do not stand for bullying and racism. We support @KrystinaArielle.

At this point, she began to accept bigoted abuse and allegations of being bigoted.
However, Star Wars tweeted on their site, saying, “Our Star Wars ethnic group is a group of expectation and inclusivity.”
Ms. Arielle was recently reported as the host of the High Republic Show, an upcoming web agreement about Star Wars: The High Republic, another sub-series of the Star Wars media company.
She was attacked after web-based media clients restored various old tweets, generally a year ago when fighting was taking place on the Black Lives Matter site around the world.
In part of her past tweets, Arielle references white socialmediagossips and offers thoughts on basic racism. In one it says: “Just an update that white women are also complicit in maintaining and authorizing racial rule.”
And I was in such a good mood.
White socialmediagossips: You cannot rid socialmediagossips of racism. They cannot indicate their “growth” when they say black lives matter after treating us as if we don’t. You cannot accept apologies on our behalf. That shouldn’t need to be said

“The last 24 hours have been … not the best,” she tweeted on Saturday alongside screenshots of exceptionally hostile, bigoted messages.
Many, however, got up on Arielle’s side while the hashtag #IStandWithKrystina started moving on Twitter.
Matthew Mercer, host of the Critical Role webcast she was a part of, stated, “There aren’t many who are as brilliant, bossy, and by and large great as they are [Krystina Arielle]and any person who tries to venture into their ring knows better that we are not too far from them. “
#IStandWithKrystina Protect the black creators.
Krystina, speaking about white supremacy, white privilege, and white complicity in America is not an easy or a sure thing.
Black voices belong in Star Wars.

This is not the first time anyone associated with the Star Wars establishment has announced their acceptance of bigoted abuse.
Entertainer John Boyega said his projection on The Force Awakens had a noticeably large response from some fans.
“Nobody else had sent the turmoil and death threats from their Instagram DMs and online media and said,” Dark this and dark that and you shouldn’t be a stormtrooper, “he announced to the British GQ a year ago.
“Nobody else had this experience. Still, individuals are amazed that I am like this. This is my dissatisfaction. “
