William Shatner Thinks Disney Is Teaming Up With "SJWs" To Harass Him
William Shatner had every opportunity to propel himself to A-list stardom after his role as Captain Kirk in the original Star Trek. So why has he been reduced to jokey cameo bits in Sandra Bullock comedies while, say, Patrick Stewart enjoys ongoing celebrity? Maybe it's because everyone who has ever worked with Shatner thinks he's an asshole.
Recently, Shatner has become acquainted with the popular online insult "SJW" (social justice warrior), an ill-defined term which generally refers to someone who is in favor of feminism, minority rights, or gay rights, but, like, somehow too much in favor of them.

A bunch of authors who had written Star Wars books happened to be among the many Twitter users dismayed that Captain Kirk was being a turd. Shatner saw this as proof that he was the victim of a harassment conspiracy by the Disney Corporation, complete with all the MS Paint arrows and red lines you'd expect from an Alex Jones fan:
