Star Wars franchise creator George Lucas is a sensitive man. When the legendary director explained the reasons why he quit directing Star Wars, it sounds like he's really hurt about how fans criticized the prequel films. But who knew he'd unleash his "thug life" side.
During the red carpet premiere of Star Wars: The Force Awakens in Hollywood, CA, Lucas gave StarWars.com a brief interview. He revealed that he's working on his own films, but he's not planning to release it publicly, saying "They'll just be films for myself and my friends". He kept his response short. As he was leaving the interview, producer Frank Marshall, whose hit Jurassic World scored the biggest opening weekend of all time earlier this year, tried to do a bit of trash-talking, and watch what happens next:
Lucas responded with an easy one-liner, simply saying, "I'll crush you like a bug.". YouTuber Todilee Lee took this moment and turned it into a classic Thug Life meme, and it's brilliant! I think the funniest moment here is the reporter's reaction after hearing Lucas diss.
