In all of Star Wars fandom, there may no more deeply loathed character than of Jar Jar Binks. For years people have discussed their hatred for George Lucas' Goofy-inspired creation ad nauseam.
What no one has ever discussed before was how that intense criticism surrounding the character effected the voice and motion-capture actor, Ahmed Best. That is until yesterday when Ahmed Best himself, posted a jarring tidbit on his Twitter feed that acknowledged how tough it was and is to be the man who helped bring Lucas' vision to life:
Friends and Twitter users rallied to support Best:
Including Star Wars: The Last Jedi Director, Rian Johnson, who (along with Last Jedi actors Kelly Marie Tran, John Boyega and others) has been the victim of a nearly 6-month onslaught of searing criticism for his entry into the canon.
And Jar Jar fans:
Binks was the "first lead computer-generated character of the franchise" and was featured in Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, Episode II: Attack of the Clones, and stopped by for a one-line cameo in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
