I'm Sickened At The Vile, Racist Comments So-Called "Star Wars" Fans Have Been Sending To Black Actor And "Obi-Wan Kenobi" Star Moses Ingram

Prior to the series debut, Moses told the Independent that Lucasfilm executives warned her that she might face online harassment from racist trolls.

"It was something that Lucasfilm actually got in front of, and said, ‘This is a thing that, unfortunately, likely will happen. But we are here to help you; you can let us know when it happens.’"

"Obi-Wan is going to bring the most diversity I think we’ve ever seen in the galaxy before," Moses added. "To me, it’s long overdue. If you’ve got talking droids and aliens, but no people of color, it doesn’t make any sense. It’s 2022, you know. So we’re just at the beginning of that change. But I think to start that change is better than never having started it.”
