Mark Hamill is having a pretty good weekend.
The dazzling “Last Jedi”(in which he plays a central role) pulled down over $450 million this weekend alone, the epic space opera is well on it’s way to eclisping over a billion in worldwide sales.
Despite the pure domination of Star Wars at the box office, Hamil’s sensibilities were offended earlier this week when FCC chairman Ajit Pai posted a puzzling video of himself against a Star Wars theme as he attempted to quell public fear over the Net Neutraility repeal.
Cute video Ajit "Aren't I Precious?" Pai 🤮-but you are profoundly unworthy 2 wield a lightsaber-A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man-NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations. Btw-did you pay John Williams his royalty? @AjitPaiFCCorpShill #AJediYouAreNOT pic.twitter.com/SpIcOEySUY

He failed miserably, and the Last Jedi let him know about.
.@HammillHimself Luke, I know Hollywood can be confusing, but it was Vader who supported govt power over everything said & done on the Internet. That's why giant corps (Google, Facebook, Netflix) supported the FCC power grab of net neutrality. Reject the dark side: Free the net! https://t.co/nARkMvIEYk

In response to Hamil’s tweet, Senator Ted Cruz entered the fold, and chided Hamil while not spelling his name correctly.
Cruz did seem to have harmless intentions, but was still destroyed by the Last Jedi.
Thanks for smarm-spaining it to me @tedcruz I know politics can be confusing, but you'd have more credibility if you spelled my name correctly. I mean IT'S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU! Maybe you're just distracted from watching porn at the office again❤️-mh https://t.co/nHpJVG1Wpe

Senator Cruz is one of the more clever twitter users out there, and even he didn’t feel the need to clap back on this one.
Well done Master Skywalker.
