I think so much of the current backlash and justification is the expected result to the fact that of all people, of all people, it was a group of mostly-female hero/villain shippers and associated fan creators who have had the most consistent track record in terms of analyzing themes and character arcs for TLJ. Not the gatekeeping fanboys. Not the antis. But the group that they’ve openly mocked since Day 1.
You fools, it was the Reylos. All along, IT WAS THE REYLOS.
