While Finn might have kept silent in Star Wars, Boyega himself has been rather vocal in promoting the latest installment in the saga. Specifically, he’s stated a number of controversial things on Twitter, where he engages with his fans fairly frequently.

However, some of his posts and comments have seemingly backfired on him and riled folks into a social media storm.

Boyega is playing the game though, trolling Star Wars fans when and where he pleases. And you can get a feel for what he’s doing in some of the following tweets:

However, the wisecracks haven’t all come from Boyega. A few fans have had some great comebacks to his tweets. Just take a look at this next one from @SternerMax94:

Aside from the lighthearted clowning around on social media, Boyega’s been lambasted by swarms of Star Wars fans for certain relevant content he’s posted on Twitter.

In any case, the young actor has now joined the ranks of the greatest trolls of the web. And despite any backlash he’s received, he shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
