HOAX: Man Kills Himself Because Star Wars' Main Character is Black

HOAX: A man DOES NOT commit suicide because the main Star Wars Episode VII character is black.

(UDPATE: Tuesday, October 20, 2015: 10: 49 PM EST) After careful investigation, a man actually did not commit suicide after watching the Star Wars trailer. Newswatch33.com is a FAKE news website and their sources were illegitimate. You can read the previous report below: (October 20, 2015 @ 12:32)#BoycottStarWarsVII has gone viral and many people are pissed off that John Boyega has such a major role in the upcoming Star Wars: Force Awakens. Now, according to Newswatch33, authorities are reporting that a 53 year-old Caucasian man was found dead in Charlotte, North Carolina with a suicide note that read, "Make America White Again." Monday, during Monday Night Football's Halftime Show, Disney revealed the Star Wars trailer for the new Star Wars Episode VI. When the trailer was initially released in December 2014, Boyega was quickly dismissed as a small character playing the role of a storm trooper. However, many fans, especially those who appear to have racist views, expressed how upset they were with Boyega as the main character in Star Wars VII on Twitter. Star Wars Star Wars According to reports, Bobby-Jo, 53, of Charlotte, North Carolina was known by friends as a hardcore Star Wars fan. His wife, Sarah Garrison, also a Star Wars fan, attended comic-con every year dressed up as storm troopers. However, Mrs. Garrison would find her husband unresponsive with a suicide note saying "Make America White Again." According to Newswatch33, when the EMS and police arrived at the scene, Mr. Garrison was pronounced dead. Officer Jenkins would collect the suicide note from Mrs. Garrison. She would later point out that in the suicide letter Garrison had an issue with the main character of Star Wars being black. From Newswatch33.com:
"If white people aren't wanted in Star Wars, then our money must not be either. I'm tired of seeing N**GERS taking over great white films. I can not live in a world being overran by Blacks. Sorry Sarah."
In another section of the letter read, Boycott Star Wars VII because Disney decided to use affirmative action instead of the force. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ was co-written and directed by JJ Abrams and takes place 30 years after ‘Star Wars: The Return of the Jedi,” when the rebels crushed the Galactic Empire. While audiences will see some of their favorite actors return to their iconic roles, a new wave of villains and heroes are expected to appear in the new feature film. Star Wars ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens” features Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, Kenny Baker, Lupita Nyong’o, Gwendoline Christie and Pip Anderson.
