John Boyega, star of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, has been facing backlash over the last few months after he threw shade at Reylo — the relationship between franchise protagonists Rey and Kylo Ren. Now, he's finally clapped back at the haters and Twitter appears to be fully backing him.

It all started back in December when Boyega posted a series of images on Twitter depicting Reylo fighting one another. Ever since, the actor has faced a ton of negative comments from fans accusing him of dividing Star Wars community and launching personal attacks.

Last night, Boyega responded in the best way ever — he took a load of the harsh comments from the last few weeks and made them into the beautiful compilation video you see below.

He captioned the video "Glad I got that out of my system," but Boyega doesn't appear to be the only one relieved that he's finally standing up for himself.
