Star Wars Fans Worried About Darth Maul’s Return After Ray Park’s Instagram Post

Ray Park as Darth Maul

Sometimes it’s just hard for us to understand the things celebrities say or do, and other times things just get very bizarre. And as is most common, one such situation recently popped up on social media and started trending for all the wrong reasons.

Actor Ray Park, who played Darth Maul in the Star Wars franchise, was reportedly set to reprise his role as the dual-saber wielding Dathomirian in future projects, but an unexpected Instagram post might just have irrevocably jeopardized the situation.

On Friday, a post went up on the actor’s Instagram page that seemingly showed Park engaging in sexual activities with his wife. The post has since been deleted, but some fans are wondering if his profile had been hacked and as of now, there’s been no statement from the actor himself. There’s even a rumor going around with some people claiming that this was an act of revenge, adding that it was in response to his wife allegedly cheating on him.

Obviously, folks on Twitter have a lot to say about the situation and you can check out just a sample of what’s being said down below:

But there’s also a camp of defenders who are urging fans to wait for the facts before jumping to conclusions or calling for Ray Park to be “canceled.”

With Darth Maul’s status as a fan-favorite villain in the series, it sure sounded like Disney and Lucasfilm had big plans for the character going forward. This even reportedly included a cameo in season 3 of The Mandalorian and possibly his own show.

And while Ray Park was never officially attached to any of these projects, his cameo in Solo: A Star Wars Story meant that the likelihood of him playing the role again was quite high. But now this entire situation will need to be completely resolved before Disney even considers letting the star join the ranks of another film or TV series.
