The 'Star Wars' Facebook Page Just Perfectly Shut Down This Sexist Comment
In case you haven't already noticed, Gwendoline Christie is legit killing the game right now -- in more ways than one.
On "Game of Thrones," so far, her Brienne of Tarth basically slays anyone and everyone who dares to test her, and in "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2," she'll be a victor-turned-revolutionary who leads her formerly Capitol-friendly district right into the war zone. Badass. Soooo badass.
And so it shall be again in "Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens" with her portrayal of Captain Phasma, a fierce new Stormtrooper whose very strut is guaranteed to strike fear and fealty into the hearts of millions across the galaxy.
So, you think people would learn not to mess with her by now, but alas, at least one sexist internet troll has raised his keyboard-is-mightier-than-the-sword weaponry against her ... and was quickly vanquished for his misogynist comment.
As captured by a Twitterer's screengrab (via E! Online) before its deletion, one of the commenters to the official "Star Wars" Facebook page's posting of a fun piece of Phasma fan art wrote, "Not to be sexist but it's really hard to tell that's female armor for me."
In response, the page's administrators used the Force to cut that down like a light-saber to Luke's right hand.
"It's armor. On a woman. It doesn't have to look feminine," the page replied.
We couldn't have said it better ourselves. In Yoda speak: out of this world that social media team is.
