Report: Lego To Stop Production Of ‘Star Wars’ Set Due To Anti-Muslim Backlash

ENFIELD, Conn. (CBS Connecticut) — Lego will reportedly cease production of a popular “Star Wars” toy set after Muslim communities complained about the product.
The Independent reports that several Muslim groups in Austria claimed “Jabba’s Palace” was anti-Muslim as it showed popular “Star Wars” character Jabba the Hut in a mosque-like lair with a hookah, guns and an imprisoned Chewbacca.
OK, I did some Googling, and despite the publication date, this appears to be real rather than an April Fools Day prank. **IF TRUE:
The stupid is strong in this one!
Lego should have known better! They should have made Jabba’s palace look like a ranch style or Cape Cod style house!**
