J.J. Abrams has had it with all The Last Jedi backlash and he has a message for all those so-called critics.

Abrams slammed all the fans who hated the focus on strong female characters.

With the Force Awakens director due to come back for Episode 9, he sat down with IndieWire and vented how he felt with the backlash for Rian Johnson‘s Last Jedi.

“Their problem isn’t Star Wars, their problem is being threatened”.

Star Wars is a big galaxy, and you can sort of find almost anything you want to in Star Wars. If you are someone who feels threatened by women and needs to lash out against them, you can probably find an enemy in Star Wars.

“You can probably look at the first movie that George [Lucas] did and say that Leia was too outspoken, or she was too tough. Anyone who wants to find a problem with anything can find the problem. The internet seems to be made for that.”

 And if you think those critics are going to affect the number of female characters he’ll have in Episode 9, then you’re wrong.
“I will say that the story of Rey and Poe (Oscar Isaac) and Finn (John Boyega) and Kylo Ren (Adam Driver) – and if you look, there are three men and one woman, to those that are complaining that there are too many women in ‘Star Wars’ – their story continues in a way that I couldn’t be more excited about and cannot wait for people to see,” he explained.
