Star Wars actor Mark Hamill hit back at Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Ajit Pai for using a lightsaber in a video defending the agency’s repeal of net neutrality rules, saying Pai was “unworthy” of using a lightsaber.
“Cute video Ajit 'Aren't I Precious?' Pai -but you are profoundly unworthy 2 wield a lightsaber,” Hamill tweeted.
“A Jedi acts selflessly for the common man-NOT lie 2 enrich giant corporations.”
The actor also hit Pai over his use of the “Star Wars” theme in the video, asking if Pai had paid composer John Williams his royalty.

Pai has already come under fire for the video, which was produced by conservative outlet The Daily Caller.
Baauer, the DJ behind "Harlem Shake" threatened to take legal action against Pai for using his viral song during part of the clip.
And one of the women featured in the video, Daily Caller video producer Martina Markota, was revealed to be a major promoter of the “Pizzagate” conspiracy theory.
Pizzagate alleged that top Democrats were running a pedophile ring out of a D.C. pizzeria. The ring is nonexistent and the claims were debunked, but a man motivated by the conspiracy theory fired a gun at the restaurant last year.
The Republican-led FCC voted 3-2 to repeal net neutrality rules on Thursday.
