Former Trump administration official Sebastian Gorka is very upset about gay people in Star Wars.

Gorka, who served as deputy assistant to the president for eight months in 2017, went nuclear after director JJ Abrams teased that upcoming film The Rise of Skywalker would have some form of LGBT+ representation.

Sebastian Gorka claims that ‘alphabet soup’ will ruin Star Wars.

Speaking on his Salem Radio Network radio show, Gorka complained: They’re going to destroy Star Wars… we have the statement from JJ Abrams that Star Wars is going to go LGBTQ.

“Well, you know, if you couldn’t destroy the franchise already, let’s destroy it a little bit more.

“The last instalment of the Star Wars saga would include a member from the trans… is it trans? Let’s just say the alphabet soup community.”

He also raged at the James Bond franchise for featuring a character played by black actor Lashana Lynch taking over the spy’s 007 codename.

Gorka continued: “A black, female 007… give me a break. When will Hollywood stop pandering to the SJW crowd? That’s the question.

“Today, I think we have the evidence, the final evidence, from impeachment to Hollywood, of how stupid the left has become.”

The Rise of Skywalker may feature some crumbs of LGBT representation.

JJ Abrams teased the prospect of representation while shutting down fan hopes of a romance between Finn and Poe, played by Oscar Isaac and John Boyega.

He told Variety: “That relationship to me is a far deeper one than a romantic one… [but]  in the case of the LGBTQ community, it was important to me that people who go to see this movie feel that they’re being represented in the film.”

Asked if the film had LGBT representation, he said: “I will say I’m giving away nothing about what happens in the movie… but I did just say what I just said.”
