Disney defends ‘Star Wars’ host after tweets about White people resurface

By Tyler McCarthy

Disney is defending the host of a new “Star Wars” web series amid backlash to tweets some deemed to be racist toward White people.

Krystina Arielle announced this month that she will host “The High Republic Show,” a web series offering news and insights into the latest multimedia subseries of the immensely popular science fiction franchise.

However, shortly after announcing Arielle as the host of the new bi-monthly show, some combed through her past tweets and found several that spoke in somewhat harsh terms about White people’s role in dismantling racism.

The backlash got so bad that it prompted the official “Star Wars” Twitter account to issue a statement defending the host and denouncing “bullying and racism.”
