Sexism has hit a new low. Most women-centred scenes from Star Wars: The Last Jedi have been edited out! According to Pedestrian, an anonymous user uploaded a film called “The Last Jedi: De-Feminized Fanedit” on Pirate Bay recently.
The user who uploaded it has been referred to as an “MRA,” or “Men’s Rights Activist”.
The 46-minute cut is surely the product of a deranged mind. The Star Wars series has always been offering badass women rebels as its leading characters.
Well, if that not enough, the MRA also named the video “The Chauvinist Cut” – you know just in case the intention wasn’t clear
So let me get this straight — now the new Star Wars movie has no lead character, since the main protagonist is a woman — so no Rey (Daisy Ridley)? Wonder how’d that be? So it’s only just storm troopers? It’s a simple yet powerful question: why?
Because a galaxy far, far away without Carrie Fisher and other powerful female figures, the franchise loses its identity
Answers: The user describes the cut as “basically The Last Jedi minus Girlz Powah and other silly stuff.”
While the fan tried to take feminists out of the powerful women-led franchise, its very existence proves why we need powerful women in ‘Star Wars’
Naturally, social media users and true Star Wars’ fans are fuming over the interference in the work. Star Wars actors are mocking the person behind the recut film.
Film writer and critic Priscilla Page posted a link to a news report about the recut:

Even John Boyega, who played Finn in Star Wars: The Force Awakens as well as in The Last Jedi, couldn’t stop laughing
Great points. Hope it’s okay to make a final point…

Saw The Last Jedi. Can definitely see why all the whining little MRA Nazi dudes hate it. All the same reasons I found it delightful 😍

It is impossible not to look at "MRA Star Wars" and not turn your nearest male friend to say, "come get your boys." While sobbing with laughter.

Let's be honest, the MRA neckbeard that made an edit of The Last Jedi without all the women was just trying to mirror his own womanless life.

I literally can’t stop laughing at this MRA edit of The Last Jedi.

MRA's: We're not sexist, we want equality. That's were removing all the women from Star Wars, Star Trek, Little Women, Jackie Brown, Frances Ha, Ghostbusters, Wonder Woman, Terminator, every Porno, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane, Educating Rita…
