This is an image that was posted by Bryan Young back in December, and has been floating around on the interwebs since then.

It is cited as evidence of the racist harassment of Kelly Marie Tran.
Pretty bad, right?
Putting this image through imageedited.com, shows that this image has been altered by image editing software.
Additionally, when we put the image through the ELA analysis at FotoForensics.com, we see that the text really lights up, suggesting that the text is what may have been altered in the image.
Wookieepedia admins have removed the vandalism, closing off Rose’s page for editing. A history of the edits to the page, with attached IP addresses, is still publicly available, though the edit in question has been removed. Young told Newsweek the IP address attached to the edit in the screenshot is 18.104.22.168. The user has been blocked from using Wookieepedia or any other FANDOM wikis.
If the image and the edits at Wookiepedia are genuine, then the IP address of the editor that Wookieepedia provided, traces back to Los Angeles, California.
How many “racist sexist Nazi Trump incels” do you suppose live in L.A.?
