Damned That He Did

There was no love lost between Anthony Daniels, who plays C-3PO in Star Wars, and his co-star Kenny Baker (R2-D2).

I've known about the feud between the pair for years, so was interested to see what Daniels' reaction was to Baker's passing over the weekend. Well, it wasn't that was interested to see Daniels' reaction, I was intrigued to see how people would react to his reaction, if you will.

As expected, Daniels acknowledged his co-star's passing on Twitter. He more or less had to, right?

Anyway, what irked me was there were some people out there who trolled Daniels by calling him a hypocrite for doing so.

Now, I don't know exactly what went down between the two actors. What I do know, however, is Daniels was in a lose-lose situation whatever he did.

If he didn't mention Baker's passing, he would have ended up being attacked for that. 

And don't even question that one. You know it would have happened.

It's unfortunate that the pair did not get along. On screen they were a brilliant double act. Such a shame that their off-screen time together wasn't as glorious.
