Perhaps you were unaware, but some dudes weren't entirely enthusiastic about Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Over the past few months, men's rights activists have been actively campaigning against JJ Abrams' reboot of the franchise, furious that he'd cast a woman and a black guy as the stars of their fave space-dorks series and calling the film "SJW propaganda".
Earlier this week, men's rights group Return Of Kings proudly took a bow over the fruits of their campaign, claiming that their extended boycott of The Force Awakens cost studio Disney $4.2 million in box office earnings.
Regardless of the fact that they came to this suspect figure via Twitter polling and mangled statistics or that an extra $4.2 million is largely inconsequential to a film that's earned over $760 million at the US box office alone and just overtaken Avatar as the highest domestic box office earner of all time, they, uh, have a point, I guess!
And so, to appease their whiny complaints, Jimmy Kimmel re-edited The Force Awakens for their women-hating, whitewashing pleasure.
Being the powerful brainiacs they are, the group responded well to the mockery:
"Why, thank you. Douches are essential sanitary products, and so we will take that as a compliment, m'lady."
