Mark Hamill claps back at Ted Cruz over net neutrality tweetPosted: Updated:
Strong was the force of an exchange on Twitter between Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill and Senator Ted Cruz.
The GOP representative and Hamill exchanged jabs about net neutrality.
Hamill started by sending a post with a video explaining the consequences of the Internet deregulation.
Cruz then responded to that, but Hamill came back with a vengeance.
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— @HamillHimself (@HamillHimself) December 16, 2017
.@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— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 17, 2017
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— @HamillHimself (@HamillHimself) December 17, 2017
Yes, that's it. So sorry to misspell your name. Respond not with facts, but with anger. Who was it that said, "Fear is the path to the dark side…fear leads to anger…anger leads to hate"? (1/2) https://t.co/uwMMzgKC1R— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 17, 2017
(2/2) Rather than insults, try civil discussion of facts. Fact 1: until 2015, the FCC had NO authority over Internet. The Net grew free & unregulated. Fact 2: W/ "net neutrality" the FCC declared power to regulate everything said & done on Internet. That's really bad for freedom. https://t.co/uwMMzgKC1R— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) December 17, 2017
