Sadly, racist morons do not exist in a galaxy far, far away.

They are alive, well and ranting like absolute lunatics on Twitter.

John Boyega in Star Wars

A day after the final (awesome!) Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer went viral, a social media movement has sprung up that is asking fans to #BoycottStarWarsVII.

Because these critics don’t want to see the franchise being ruined by a subpar follow-up? No. We wish that were the reason.

Instead, the hashtag is symbolic of an objection some actually have to the fact that The Force Awakens features lead characters who are NOT white males; its users are accusing the film of pushing an evil multicultural agenda.

We are sadly serious.

#BoycottStarWarsVII because it is anti-white propaganda promoting #whitegenocide," reads one Tweet from an account calling itself "End Cultural Marxism."

Another simply says that "Jewish activist JJ Abrams is an anti-white nut."

Other messages voice complaints over a “non-White Star Wars,” while one Twitter user believes the blockbuster should be boycotted "because it’s nothing more than a social justice propaganda piece that alienates its core audience of young white males."

We could spend days thinking of retorts to these total lunatics, but we’ll let Tony Award-winning Audra McDonald do it for us within 140 characters:

"#BoycottStarWarsVII folks, Lemme get this straight: Wookies, Ewoks & Droids are fine but a BLACK PERSON is a problem?

"Go home. You’re Drunk."
