There are a bunch of people on Twitter who are up in arms about a Black character being in the highly anticipated upcoming flick, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

Yesterday, the poster for the seventh Star Wars movie was revealed and the inclusion of a non-White actor – John Boyega – has people on Twitter claiming the movie promotes “white genocide.” Later, during halftime of the NFL game between the Eagles and the Giants, an exclusive clip was shown, featuring a diverse cast. It’s pretty clear that movie’s main characters are Harrison Ford, who plays Han Solo, and Carrie Fisher, who plays Princess Leia, but racist nerds fought back anyway.

Searching the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII leads to hilarity, weirdness, and tons of racial comments.

Here are some of the best tweets we found:
