A "Claw" took a hold of a young creature of a galaxy far, far away this week, and Twitter is not exactly here for it.
A bold fan of The Mandalorian decided to demonstrate his love and dedication for the very recently released Star Wars series on Disney+ by tattooing a cartoon version of the show’s most popular character, Baby Yoda, on his forearm.
The decision itself wouldn’t have been so bad; thousands of folks in the Star Wars fandom from many generations have decided to join the Force with some ink, but this particular fan might've taken it a smidge too far for the Twitter-sphere when he decided to get Baby Yoda tattooed holding a White Claw.
Needless to say, the onslaught of criticism has been brutal. Users are ripping the tattoo to shreds, not only because it is “the most millennial tattoo” they have ever seen, but because the artwork makes Baby Yoda look more like a gremlin than the teeny Jedi we know and love.
One user hilariously wrote, “Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?” One commented, “That thing looks like a gremlin. Not my precious baby yoda.” Another posted, “And it’s already irrelevant.”
Though there is a lot of hate pouring into the feed, some users were keen to play along. One user rode the White Claw wave, posting, “My dude looks disappointed it got stuck with the grapefruit and not the black cherry fr.” Even the hard seltzer company themselves posted, “Truly wonderful, this tattoo is.”
I guess when it comes to the Star Wars fandom, there are still laws when you drink Claws.
