A Twitter post by Ivanka Trump, which you can see below, sparked a social media feeding frenzy after Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill lashed out about the post.
The Ivanka Trump tweet, posted Saturday, shows her youngest son, Theodore, 3, dressed as a Stormtrooper from “Star Wars.” The post includes the comment “The Force is strong in my family.”
Hamill replied Sunday with a tweet aimed at Ivanka Trump saying, “You misspelled ‘Fraud,'” and using the hashtag #GoForceYourself.
At that point both critics and supporters of the Trump family, and of Hamill, began chiming in from all directions, as a full-on social media war broke out.
One Twitter user wrote in response to Hamill’s post: “It’s heinous to react like that to a picture of a kid loving his #StarWars cosplay. All because you hate the kid’s grandfather.”
Others were far more supportive of Hamill. Wrote Huffington Post contributor Kimberley Johnson: “I cannot love @HamillHimself more for this perfect tweet. #GoForceYourself”
Democratic strategist Adam Parkhomenko added his own caption to the Trump photo, writing: “Mommy, why does Luke Skywalker hate us?
“Because we are terrible, terrible people, son.”
