Star Wars Star Sparks Backlash After Saying “Every Sane Person” Has a Problem With Trump

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Star Wars star Daisy Ridley claimed “every sane person” has a Problem with President Trump and Boris Johnson.

Ridley also touted how her starring role in “Star Wars” has allowed her to “say no” to projects that don’t interest her, while she rights for causes like equal pay and #MeToo in the industry.

Ridley said she feels no need to “edit what I say” even though Star Wars is owned by Disney ands he has not modified her politics.

By making her political leanings very public, Ridley sparked backlash online as Twitter users who support Trump were not very pleased.

Dear ⁦@Disney⁩,

Please stop your actors and actresses from making it political. All we want, as fans, is to be entertained for a few hours with a movie that is well made.

All Movie Goers

Why does it seem @starwars loves to alienate fans right before a premier. Why can’t she just accept that some people have different views then her, and not call them insane.

‘Star Wars’ actress Daisy Ridley: ‘Every sane person’ has an issue with Trump

I look forward to not seeing the movie – because they suck – and because of this clown…

Daisy Ridley went full ! The Rise of Skywalker marketing is going EXACTLY like you’d expect lol

She pissed off SJWs and she’s now targeting supporters.

Lucasfilm is a clown show

From TheGuardian

“Star Wars has given me the opportunity to do smaller things and allowed me to say no, which is glorious. I don’t talk a lot about various things because there are people fighting the good fight, and I know I have safety in that the people I have worked with have loud voices.” It’s an elliptical allusion to – I think – equal pay and #MeToo in the industry. She rubs her nose, before explaining some more.

“Well, there was another film I really wanted to do, but there were a number of factors that meant I didn’t believe it was right.” How so? “Well, it wasn’t equal and all that stuff, so I said no, even though that’s really scary. But how much of a blessing is it to be able to say no?”

Given that Disney owns Star Wars, is she conscious of what issues she can talk about publicly? Does she have to modify, say, her politics?

“No. I don’t feel I have to edit what I say – the things that make me angry are the things that make everyone angry. Everyone is annoyed with BoJo. Everyone has an issue with Trump – every sane person anyway.”

She smiles brightly at me, almost apologetic, reluctant to expand.

“It’s not that I don’t talk about this stuff, but other people are so much more articulate than me and say it better.” Our time is being signaled to a close. She bounces up from the stiff-looking chaise lounger, still lively and energetic.
