A Turkish group is claiming Lego’s “Jabba’s Palace” set is racist. Be advised, there is so much stupid in this article, that you’ll probably want to stick a thermal detonator in your mouth.
Lego has been accused of racism by the Turkish community over a Star Wars toy allegedly depicting a mosque. The critics claim that the Jabba’s Palace model, part of Lego’s Star Wars range, offends Muslims as it resembles the Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul – one of the world’s most renowned mosques.
Pfft, many Muslims today make the Tusken Raiders look like Jehovah’s Witnesses . . .
But hey, even scruffy-looking nerf-herders have feelings. Or something.
Members of the Turkish Cultural Community of Austria group also accused the toy manufacturer of depicting Asians as having “deceitful and criminal personalities.”
A statement posted on the organization’s website refers to Jabba the Hutt as a “terrorist” and says that he “likes to smoke hookah and have his victims killed.”
Yeah, the last thing we need is people thinking radical Muslims smoke hookah and kill people. Oh wait . . .
