He look like a JarJar Binks
Deonte Givens And you look like the end of a smoked blunt wrap.
This guy needs love because George Lucas likes Jar Jar, if anyone hates the character thats fine but don’t hate on the guy who did the voice because that is disrespectful
Nicholas M Daskievige shut up nobody hates him
+carlos matos no Nicholas is right A lot of people hated on jar jar
Jar jar is the best character
He could be a voice actor imo
His got a point there, and I think many children loved that character, and people that hate things their children loved turn out looking like monsters
When I saw it as a kid everyone hated that character especially his voice. None of the other kids even had his action figure.
Jar Jar is the real Sith lord behind it all
Holdo and Rose Tico are more hated than Jar Jar
Who else was waiting for him to do the voice…😅
Muhammad Joseph LITERALLY 🤣🤣
I didn’t know that people didn’t like jar jar. I think he was funny as hell and awesome.
SiLenCer0586 I’m as surprised as u
SiLenCer0586 because ur a child
+User am I now.
I loved Jar Jar. People are trippin.
Long live jar jar
Star wars is sad smh I feel bad for true fans
Jar Jar Star wars theories are my favorite
After seeing episode 8 I miss jar jar damn I hated rose not the actress but the character. Just making it clear
The least import issue in the galaxy
MAAAAAAAAAAAN GTFOHWTBS! People feel the way they do because the character sounded like a slave, and then to find out that a black man voiced it was shocking and disappointing to say the least.
You have to be a little old to instantly think of jar jar in a racist way, im 47 and I never made the connection until someone pointed it out, I just thought he was funny!
Just think. Playing Jar Jar Binks traumatized this guy, almost as much as it did us, the viewers. 🙄
Damn ludacris is looking worn out
It’s not like anyone is pointing him out on the street and saying “Hey, that’s Jar Jar! Booooo!!!!”
