The Star Wars Kid Strikes Back!
(oh the puns)

Make sure to sign the petition to get him a part in the next Star Wars movie:

Wait a minute, why should anyone reward this litigious little twit?

Maybe he should sue his parents for naming him "Ghyslain". I gotta believe he got his fair share of ridicule before the Stars Wars incident. Poor kid...

All the nerds signing the petition wish that their stories of school-time woe could get them parts on Star Wars. They're living vicariously through the Star Wars Kid.

Come on, I was ridiculed, beat up, the whole shabang, in school. Where's the petition getting me on Star Wars. I'd also like to state that if the Star Wars people actually listen and get him a part, that is the day Star Wars died. Sorry, but good movie producers don't give people roles just because they were made fun of in school.

actually, Hollywood is FULL of people whose primary motivation for success is getting beat up in school. A friend worked quite briefly for Joel "Matrix" Silver. Her interview went a little something like this:

Joel Silver: Brown? I coulda gone to Brown. I'm gonna hire you, just so I can fire someone who went to Brown.

Supposedly he was hospitalized.

did the kid file the lawsuit? No? Then how could he possibly be a "litigious little twit." Remember folks, don't divorce yourself of reason due to emotional outbursts. I doubt the kid planted the tapes and manipulated the other kids into posting it to the world. Other than that, its clear that of the two parties (SWK and his 'friends') that only one party maliciously and willfully took it upon themselves to steal, trespass and then invade someones privacy. Litigation or not, these kids should learn the valuable lesson about accountability for one's actions. I could care less if you or I were ever ridiculed in school, that is irrelevant. BTW, who here ever had worldwide ridicule? Common people, stop being brainless trolls and THINK.
