Chewbacca is a wanted man in New Orleans. NOLA Police say they are searching for a suspect who was dressed in a Chewbacca costume during a stabbing incident.

According to the New Orleans Times the suspect is a man and they know that because witnesses say the Chewbacca head fell off during the altercation. What's more, the man is actually a street performer. Witnesses did not get a great look at the suspect and believe he's in his 20's.

I'm not here to call names but they dragged Chewbacca into this and I won't stand for it. If you are going to go full loser in life, full heel, don't do it dressed as Chewbacca. I'll take it a step further don't be a loser while dressed like:

  • Luke Skywalker
  • Han Solo
  • Landonis Balthazar Calrissian
  • Wedge Antilles
  • Obi-Wan Kenobi
  • Princess Leia
  • The Mandalorian
  • Bobba Fett
  • Jango Fett.

ETC, ETC, Don't dress like the Fett's, don't even dress as Count Dooku and that character is ass.

When you put on a Star Wars costume, you should conduct yourself like a gentleman or a lady what you don't do is get in a knife fight over eight bucks (allegedly).

Has anyone ever said a positive thing about one of these street performers? Have you read anything positive about them? No, you probably haven't, it's always headlines like:

  • "Yosemite Sam Wanted for Assault, Bit Off the Tip of Police Officers Nose"
  • "Snoopy Taken Into Custody, Meth Found in Ass Crack"
  • "Iron Man Punches Grandma Over Eggo Waffle"  
  • "Batman Arrested, Police Say the Dark Knight is a Deadbeat Dad" 

This has to stop, some of them look like the characters they are portraying and seriously messing with our idealized vision. That's what the characters are for, escapism. Basically, if you want to be a superhero, act like one.
