Jar Jar Binks is one of the characters most hated in the history of cinema, and not a few pointed out as the culprit that George Lucas was destroying his galactic franchise. After ‘The phantom menace’ their presence was reduced and last year it was clarified what was your target. Yes, Ahmed Best, the actor who performed it, was also about to end really bad, because he came to think of suicide after what happened.
The performance of Best was shattered by the critics and by fans of Star Wars, and he was convinced that his career was not going to recover from that hard blow. Now about the 20th anniversary of the movie and the actor -and – musician has taken the opportunity to launch the following tweet recalling his experience:
20 years next year I faced a media backlash that still affects my career today. This was the place I almost ended my life. It’s still hard to talk about. I survived and now this little guy is my gift for survival. Would this be a good story for my only show? Lemme know. pic.twitter.com/NvVnImoJ7N

“20 years Ago I was faced with a negative response from the media that still affects my career today. I was on the verge of ending my life and it is still hard to talk about it. I survived, and now this kid is the gift for my survival. What would be a good story for my show solo? Contadme.“
There had to be a very pleasant experience for Best, who was limited to running the commands you gave Luke. In fact, he himself stressed in an interview last year to the magazine Wired, which received a death threats over the Internet and that some people approach him to say: “you destroyed my childhood“. It is worth that to me, I did not like Jar Jar, but to get to those ends is completely out of place.
