I can’t believe I am even writing this blog.
No that isn’t a typo. Cancel culture has indeed come for the most beloved character on television.
Some back story, in the second episode of season 2 of the Mandalorian ( which I thought was hot garbage), we find out heroes traveling across the galaxy to return Baby Yoda to his Jedi brethren. During the said episode, they pick up a creature who will lead them closer to the Jedi who is carrying a backpack of sorts full of her eggs. The entire second episode is the Mandalorian attempting to return said eggs to the husband on another planet so she can preserve her family. Cute right?
In a comedic part of the episode, Baby Yoda is seen eating these eggs as a snack, it’s a very light-hearted cute part of the show that I didn’t think twice about.
CUE CANCEL CULTURE.
People lost their minds online attributing baby Yoda’s eating of the eggs as genocide and incredibly insensitive to those who have had miscarriages.
***important note, I understand the pain some people go through with miscarriages and understand it is a sensitive subject****
BUT COME THE FUCK ON PEOPLE. It was definitely not Frederick E.O. Toye’s intention to single out women who have had miscarriages and hint at genocidal tendencies. It’s a fucking fictional baby, in a fictional universe, eating fictional FROGS, PRODUCED BY DISNEY!!!
Cancel culture needs to take a hike and we need to quality control people on Twitter. Everyone doesn’t need to have a voice all the time. I’m heated. You come after Star Wars, you’ve crossed a line in my books.
I’m done with the internet today.
