Star Wars legend, Mark Hamill, loves interacting with fans on Twitter, but he’s not afraid to do the occasional light and hilarious trolling. Recently, the man best known for playing Luke Skywalker took to social media to call out a meme that misquoted him. However, he did it in a way that was still respectful to the original poster, which is why he remains the true legend of Twitter.
Someone went to the trouble of making this meme-then misquoted my actual poem— Mark Hamill (@HamillHimself) June 2, 2019
"Lightsabers are red- Lightsabers are blue-
By chance you find mine- Return the hand too"
Not to nitpick, but adding the word "any' doesn't scan right & ruins the rhythm. #ItsTheThoughtThatCounts 🔪✋ pic.twitter.com/8LNpQYxWsm

We’re loving the added hashtag! Way to call someone out in then nicest way possible, Mark!

Became an astmathic talker
His daughter stole plans
And he thus took no chance
And in his spaceship he stalked her.

Nice work, Internet!
While Luke may have died in Star Wars: The Last Jedi, fans can still expect to see Hamill's return in the upcoming film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Hamill’s role in the new movie hasn’t been announced, but many believe he will return as a Force Ghost, much like Obi-Wan did in the original trilogy.0comments
