Jason Isaacs, who plays the role of Captain Lorca in Star Trek: Discovery, does not hold back at all when it comes to taking down any kind of trolls. At a New York Comic Con press release on Saturday, the former Lucius Malfoy actor had addressed racist trolls on Twitter who had bashed their show for having Sonequa Martin-Green as the first black woman to lead the Star Trek series.
“They can go fuck themselves,” Isaacs says.
Julia Alexander of Polygon had reported the moment in a tweet and writes that Isaacs was talking diversity and representation when he responded and spoke about the topic.
Martin-Green responded to the criticisms herself to Entertainment Weekly:
“I would encourage them to key into the essence and spirit of “Star Trek” that has made it the legacy it is — and that’s looking across the way to the person sitting in front of you and realizing you are the same, that they are not separate from you, and we are all one.”
This is not the first time Isaacs has called out fans for being rude.
Do not mess with Lucius Malfoy or Captain Lorca.
