Princeton snowflakes ban StormTrooper costumes from STAR WARS party
If you graduated from Princeton in 2012 and plan to attend the "Star Wars" theme party, then don't dress up like a Stormtrooper. Word on the streets is that the costume is banned because it's racist.
And yes, you read that correctly and we have literally all lost our minds with this politically correct nonsense.
It's a StormTrooper and they are an iconic part of the Star Wars saga that dates back farther than these 2012 graduates can remember.
What's next, you can't dress up as Darth Vader because he's black?
Or perhaps we can't dress up as an Ewok because that's offensive to midgets.
This politically correct nonsense has to stop.
Graduates from Princeton’s 2012 class will not be able to attend a “Star Wars”-themed party in Stormtrooper gear due to fears that it will convey a racist message.
A rules committee organizing a five-year class reunion party in early June around the fictional “Star Wars” universe was contacted about characters allegedly inspired by World War II-era events. Subsequently, Stormtroopers will not be allowed.

“A few of our classmates reached out expressing concerns over our choice to use Stormtroopers as our costume inspiration,” the email said. “We have been informed of the origin of this word and its connections to early- to mid-20th century Germany. This is something neither we nor anyone on your Reunion Committee were aware of, but something we take very seriously. Tonight we made the unanimous decision to remove these costumes.”
Individuals who already ordered a Stormtrooper costume through the committee were informed that they would receive a different outfit instead, Heatstreet reported.
This is the second time in recent months that “Star Wars” became tangled in historical debates about Nazi Germany. “Rouge One” writer Chris Weitz tweeted, “Please note that the Empire is a white supremacist (human) organization,” on Nov. 11 after Republican Donald Trump won the 2016 presidential election.
Unanimous decision among a room of snowflakes. It's like the snow globe on Aunt Betty's dresser from 1952 exploded and out came these cranky party poopers.
This is literally the most stupid thing I have ever heard. I thought Princeton was for smart people? I didn't know they lowered their expectations and filled the school with less than scholarly social justice warriors.
This is insanity at its finest.
This is for you, Princeton snowflakes.
