Ewan McGregor, Star Wars condemn ‘horrendous’ racist messages sent to Obi-Wan Kenobi’s Moses Ingram

Following her revelation of “hundreds” of racist messages she had received on social media, the Star Wars franchise has thrown its support behind Obi-Wan Kenobi actor Moses Ingram.

Ingram, who portrays Reva Sevander, the Third Sister in the new Disney+ spin-off, addressed the racist comments in an Instagram post that has since been deleted.

“No one can stop this hatred,” she stated. “What disturbs me is this sensation I’ve had inside of myself that no one has told me about,” Ingram added.

“I don’t have that kind of build.” So I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who supports me in the comments and in areas where I won’t be. And the rest of you, you’re strange.”

“The love is louder,” Ingram captioned the following Instagram story. It is at capacity. “I appreciate it.”

Ewan McGregor, the show’s lead actor and executive producer, called Ingram’s assault “horrendous.”

“It appears that portion of this influential fan base has decided to harass Moses Ingram online, sending her the most awful, racist DMs,” McGregor stated in a video posted to the official Obi-Wan Kenobi Twitter account on Wednesday.

“I just shattered my heart when I heard some of them this morning.”

“It simply sickens me to my stomach to learn that this has been happening,” he said, describing Ingram as a “great performer” who “brings so much to the franchise.”

“I just want to express that we stand behind Moses as the series’ major performer and executive producer.” McGregor stated, “We love Moses.”

“And in my opinion, if you’re sending her harassing texts, you’re not a Star Wars fan.” Racism has no place in today’s society. And Moses has my complete support.”

Star Wars official Twitter account also expressed its approval.

“Don’t choose to be a racist when there are over 20 million intelligent species in the Star Wars galaxy,” it tweeted on Tuesday.

“We’re thrilled to have Moses Ingram join the Star Wars family, and we’re looking forward to Reva’s journey.” If somebody tries to make her feel unwelcome in any way, we only have one response: we will resist,” the statement continued.

Obi-Wan Kenobi is the most recent installment in the Star Wars universe’s ever-expanding universe.

The extremely popular show, which debuted last Friday, is Disney+’s most-watched original series premiere.
