Star Wars: Jason Sudeikis 'Disowned' By Comedy Group for Punching Baby Yoda in The Mandalorian

People are likely to agree that the final episode of The Mandalorian Season 1 was a true masterpiece except for one little thing. Early on in Chapter 8: Redemption, one of the scout troopers actually punched Baby Yoda for biting his finger. Not surprisingly, Jason Sudeikis, who played the guilty trooper, is now being considered a worse Star Wars villain than Moff Gideon himself. In addition to that, his comedy group has somehow disowned him for the horrible act.

The Second City, an improvisational theater group that Sudeikis has worked with, decided to launch their own Twitter account just to address the comedian's heinous move in the Star Wars series. Take a look at the tweet below.

"The Second City does not condone the punching of Baby Yoda by alumnus Jason Sudeikis. Please respect our privacy during this difficult time," the post reads. It also includes the hashtag #TheMandalorian.

Seriously, that was one of the worst things we've seen happen in The Mandalorian. But is it bad enough for one man to lose the support of his former comedy group. Well, yes. Yes, it is.

Although the Child was punched by the cowardly scout trooper, we're happy to report that he came out of the season finale just fine. Baby Yoda is now part of Din Djarin's clan of two and is expected to return in The Mandalorian Season 2.

The final episode of The Mandalorian Season 1 is currently streaming on Disney+.
