Before she entered the national dialogue with the revelation that, in 2016, then-candidate Donald Trump paid her $130,000 to keep quiet about their 2011 sexual escapades, adult film star Stormy Daniels had some opinions about The Last Jedi. Plenty of people had TLJ opinions, but Daniels elevated the conversation to new heights, striking a balance between the nuanced critique of a latter-day Leonard Maltin and the ecstatic humanism of an early Marcel Proust.

But for the few non-ads she tweeted out, she really does have it out for Rian Johnson:
Steaming pile of shit>Last Jedi Go ahead and unfollow me. In case no one has noticed, I don't give a fuck. Its the worst movie ever made and Rian Johnson can drop dead.— Stormy Daniels (@StormyDaniels) January 4, 2018

If a picture's worth a thousand words, how many words are a carefully chosen emoji worth?
To which Mark Hamill replied:
What a world we live in.
Rian doesn't seem particularly affected by the wave of criticism over his entry into the Star Wars canon.
Daniels may or may not end up being a key player in the eventual unraveling of this Presidency, but she isn't about to hurt Rian Johnson's feelings.
