The reactions to Mark Hamill's criticism were mixed, but he denied targeting Ivanka Trump's son
In an image shared to Twitter on Sunday, Trump, 37, stood beside husband Jared Kushner, 38, in evening wear as their three children — Arabella Rose, 8, Joseph Frederick, 5, and Theodore James, 3 — posed beside them.
One of Trump’s sons was dressed as a Stormtrooper, a fictional soldier from the fantasy films, in front of Trump and Kushner, who is also a senior presidential aide.
“The Force is strong in my family. ⭐️,” she captioned the photo.
Hamill, who plays Luke Skywalker in the iconic movies, was not amused, and soon issued Trump a correction of sorts in a tweet of his own.
“You misspelled ‘Fraud.’ #GoForceYourself,” he wrote.
The 68-year-old actor’s dig drew mixed reactions from Twitter users, with some commending his play on words as a “Jedi Master Class on Shade,” and others taking issue with his comment, as it appeared to target a child.
Hamill later clarified that he was not targeting Trump’s child after a user zoomed in on the Stormtrooper costume and wrote, “Forget the parents… this kid rocks.”
“Agreed,” Hamill wrote on Twitter.
Earlier, one user wrote, “Way to attack a child.”
Another added, “God—-, Mr. Hamill. A kid in a Star Wars costume isn’t political. People are allowed to like Star Wars. Nice. Picking on a kid. High class.”
Still, others explained Hamill’s words not as an attack on Trump’s son, but on the first daughter herself.

“Offended Trumpsters are trying to make this an attack on a child but nope. It wasn’t a tweet about a kid and his costume, it was a response to Ivanka’s comment. Big difference, important distinction. #TheFraudIsStrong,” one user wrote.
Actor Tim Matheson seemed to agree, writing, “Conspicuous lack of art or anything interesting on the walls. Sort of like their deeply held beliefs: empty.”
The actor has long been a vocal critic of President Donald Trump and his administration, and frequently voices his disapproval on Twitter.
He’s even mentioned Star Wars in his criticism before, telling a Washington Post podcast last year that the commander-in-chief was worse than the Star Wars universe’s greatest villain.
“Listen, I really get upset then when people compare him or even Dick Cheney to Darth Vader because Darth Vader repented,” he said. “He saw the error of his ways. I don’t see either one of them doing that.”
