Things We Saw Today: Last Jedi Director Rian Johnson, King of Trolling, Strikes Again
Ever see someone who didn’t like Star Wars: The Last Jedi in your comments? Imagine that times about a million, and you have what Rian Johnson looks at on Twitter almost daily. Those who didn’t like the film love to flood his social media presence with their nonsense, because why not complain and cry over how you think Luke Skywalker would have reacted to something?
Throughout the last few years, Johnson has grown exceptionally great at responding in kind to those who want to cry and yell at him, and maybe this latest is the best thing he’s done yet! While at Fantastic Fest, a film festival in Austin, Texas, Johnson hit up a local karaoke bar and, you know, decided to enjoy a little bit of Weird Al while he was there.
