Actor John Boyega was forced to apologize this week for comments he made to Variety during a recent interview about the social media storms created by intense Star Wars fan.

He told Variety

Through social media, we get to engage, we get to have fun. But at the same time, for those who are not mentally strong, you are weak to believe in every single thing that you read. That’s, you know, it is what it is. I don’t know, for me anyway, when I see that [backlash], I’m like, well, that’s actually not true. But no, it is actually not true.

Fans thought he was referring to his ‘Star Wars’ co-star Kelly Marie Tran, who quit social media last year after months of harassment from Star Wars fans.

Boyega was quick to clarify his statement, though. He issued an apology and made it clear he was not talking about Tran directly…

In no way was I referring to Kelly when I made my comments although the interviewer mentioned her given the topic. I was really speaking from my own perspective throughout this franchise. Sometimes I’ve felt strong and sometimes I’ve felt weak. Badly worded though. I apologize.

There you have it, folks. No drama here. Keep on moving.
