Mark Hamill is best known for playing Luke Skywalker in Star Wars, but he’s also extremely active on social media. The actor isn’t afraid to be vocal about the current political climate, often condemning the actions of the president. His latest post takes a jab at Donald Trump’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, who posted a photo which included one of her kids dressed as a Stormtrooper. Hamill quote-tweeted the post with a correction.
Mixed responses for the tweet
Unsurprisingly, the comments section is filled with both love and hate for Hamill’s tweet. Some people accused the actor of attacking the children while others praised him for the joke.

Final appearance in the SW Franchise
While speaking with the Associated Press back in June, Hamill was asked if Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker would be his final appearance in the Star Wars franchise.
“I sure hope so,” he replied with a laugh, before revealing why he wants to be done with Star Wars. “Well, because…I had closure in [The Last Jedi]. The fact that I’m involved in any capacity is only because of that peculiar aspect of the Star Wars mythology where if you’re a Jedi, you get to come back and make a curtain call as a Force ghost.”
Embraces Fandom and support
Hamill seems ready to leave that chapter behind him, as much as he embraces the fandom and their support. He also seems to realize that it’s possible to oversaturate the market with Too Much Star Wars, as he previously told.
“Yes. Well, I don’t know, I’m not gonna tell them how to run their business, but, is there a possibility of Star Wars fatigue? Yeah, I think there is. I’ve experienced it, to a certain degree,” Hamill explained. “But they never listen to my ideas anyway, who needs ’em?,” he joked.
