Mark Hamill gives ideal response to Ted Cruz's patronizing net neutrality tweet

Ted Cruz crossed swords over net neutrality on Twitter Sunday - with the pair sparring over whether movie baddie Darth Vader would support the regulations and Hamill landing a dig at the senator's infamous Twitter porn gaff. "Cute video Ajit 'Aren't I Precious?' Pai", Hamill tweeted sarcastically, along with a vomiting emoji, before declaring that the FCC chief was "profoundly unworthy" of wielding a lightsabre.

The FCC last week voted to repeal the 2015 landmark net neutrality rules, which bar internet service providers from blocking or throttling internet traffic, or offering paid fast lines.

Pai's video, "7 Things You Can Still Do On The Internet After Net Neutrality", which was created in collaboration with conservative website The Daily Caller, touts killing net neutrality as creating "internet freedom". I mean IT'S RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU!'

"Thanks for smarm-spaining it to me @tedcruz I know politics can be confusing, but you'd have more credibility if you spelled my name correctly".

"A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man - NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations", Hamill wrote.

'Maybe you're just distracted from watching porn at the office again, ' he continued, in reference to a September incident in which Cruz's Twitter account liked a tweet featuring hardcore pornography.

Then on Sunday, Cruz tweeted a response to the jab at Twitter user @HammillHimself instead of the Star Wars actor, whose handle is @HamillHimself with one "m".

'Fear is the path to the dark side...fear leads to anger...anger leads to hate, ' Cruz lectured Hamill, referencing Yoda's classic advice to Hamill's character, Luke Skywalker. So sorry to misspell your name.

Content providers cheered the regulations. "Net neutrality allows for everyone to access everything on the internet, regardless of how much money you have, the access you already have or where you are", he said.
