This story occurred back in December of 2017, when The Last Jedi was still in theaters.
The debate over the blatant stupidity of the Rose Tico character was already heating up back then. TheRealComicBookGamer, articulated an effective argument against a comment from intellectual void Heather Antos, in which she stated that Rose Tico was greater than Boba Fett. Adult Marvel editors responded with adolescent hyperbole.
Even early on, it was clear that the SJW support for The Last Jedi was completely about moronic ideology rather than genuine film craft or storytelling.
