Watch: Trevor Noah Mocks #BoycottStarWarsVII on ‘The Daily Show’

Variety

After dedicated “Star Wars” fans sat through “Monday Night Football” to see the final full trailer for “The Force Awakens,” some took to social media to boycott the film for featuring a black actor, John Boyega, in a leading role.

Trevor Noah addressed the controversy Tuesday night on “The Daily Show” with help from news correspondent Jordan Klepper in a segment called “The Racism Awakens.” After showing some of the outcries of “white genocide” by fans, Noah looked back to when some fans were enraged when Boyega was initially revealed in a Stormtrooper suit in the highly anticipated movie’s first trailer.
