George Takei Urges Trekkies and Jedi To End Their Feud…by Mutually Hating ‘Twilight’
Recently, an internet feud had broken out between William Shatner (the original Captain James T. Kirk, long before Chris Pine) and Carrie Fisher (Princess Leia). But it was really just a continuance of the longest geek feud of all time: Star Trek versus Star Wars.
Well, now George Takei has stepped in to offer up a peaceful solution for both parties, possibly ending the greatest nerd-battle the world has ever known.
Fans of Star Trek. Fans of Star Wars. George Takei calls upon you to unite together…in hating Twilight.
Because “it’s really, really bad.”
Well, I think this proves it. George Takei is the greatest person in the history of the world. No questions asked.
(OH GOD, I CANNOT BELIEVE I AM ADDING THIS DISCLAIMER BUT, GUYS: I’M SURE MR. TAKEI IS KIDDING. NOT ABOUT TWILIGHT BEING BAD, I MEAN, HE’S DEAD ON ABOUT THAT, BUT ABOUT GETTING PEOPLE TO GATHER TOGETHER AND HATE IT. IT IS A JOKE. I JUST DON’T WANT TO SEE ANYTHING NASTY DIRECTED AT HIM IN THE COMMENTS, OKAY? HE’S GEORGE F*CKING TAKEI.)
