Rian Johnson's "The Last Jedi" split the fanbase, with roughly half the fans hating it.
So two days ago, some comic book website reported that they had it on good authority that Rian Johnson had been fired from working on his new Star Wars trilogy. Suddenly, the internet exploded. Website after website copied this news. A dozen youtube channels did special episodes, one of which had a three hour livestream that could best be described a celebration party.
The next morning Rian Johnson was like, "Uh, guys, I'm still working on my trilogy." I have never seen so much fuss over nothing.
