Star Wars Legos Deemed Racist By Turks

Star Wars Legos Deemed Racist By Turks



The good news for Legos is, at least they were racist towards the Religion of Peace.

They probably have nothing to worry about:

Austria’s Turkish community said the model was based on Hagia Sophia mosque in Istanbul and that the accompanying figures depicted Asians and Orientals as people with “deceitful and criminal personalities.”

The Turkish Cultural Community of Austria released a statement calling for Lego to apologise for affronting religious and cultural feelings.

The anger was provoked by “Jabba’s Palace”, a model of the home of Jabba the Hutt from Lego’s Star Wars product range based on the blockbusting series of science fiction films.

Jabba is the large slug-like creature who holds Han Solo captive in the film Return of the Jedi, and his palace is the setting for several crucial scenes, including using Princess Leia as his slave.

Jabba’s domed home and accompanying watchtower bear, according to the statement, an unwanted resemblance to Istanbul’s great Hagia Sophia, and another mosque in Beirut.

Here’s Hagia Sophia:

Here’s a child’s toy:

It’s my understanding the similarities stem from the number of infidels frozen in carbonite on display at Hagia Sophia.

Other than that, one is a giant building, the other IS A CHILD’S TOY!

I mean, come on. Some of these folks are more narcissistic than Obama.

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU, GUYS!

    First of all ..its a toy.
    Second : They did not even build the Hagia Sophia(Holy Wisdom in Greek). It was build as a Christian Orthodox church by the Byzantines.When they conquer Constantinople at 15th century all they did is destroy the Christian art decorations in the interior and build 4 minarets.Thats all.
    Check wiki also for the facts. But what did they ever build? Nothing, just conquered something and then claim it as their own.Just like the ancient Greek temples/Cities in Asia minor.In their touristic guides they say its ancient Turkish heritage.

    For the “religion of peace” that sure looks like 4 missiles ready to fire at any infidels that piss them off!

    Hagia Sophia was an Orthodox cathedral for over 1000 years until it was stolen by the conquering Turks in 1453. They desecrated the most holy cathedral in all of Christian Orthodoxy by destroying all of the holy relics, symbols, and art within and turned it into a mosque. If the Turkish community cares so much about not hurting people’s feelings, perhaps they should give the cathedral back to the Patriachate of Constantinople to whom it rightfully belongs.
