Shocking: Even Revan Doesn’t Know Who Revan Is

Fire has spread across the Twitterverse as fans and non-fans alike have been discussing gatekeeping within the Star Wars community. The flames were sparked after a post called people out for not knowing who Revan of Knights of the Old Republic is. While the battle has been raging for over a day now, it has since come to light that Revan themselves doesn’t even know who Revan is!

When the former Jedi-turned-Sith Lord-turned-low-class-warrior-in-their-Underoos saw the post trending on Twitter, they were shocked by people’s response to not knowing who Revan was. While Revan was quick to defend them, he also admitted to not knowing Revan either.

“Hey, even I don’t know Revan and I’m pretty sure they/them are me. But what do I know? I just woke up from a coma in the middle of a huge space battle and can’t remember my name, gender, skin color or hair style! What’s a Reylo and Baby Yoda anyway?”

The gatekeepers who were shaming those for becoming new Star Wars fans in 2015 then jumped down Revan’s throat, even calling them a fake fan.

“How can I be a fan of a the fictional universe in which I live?” Revan went on to say but got interrupted as someone ran in and told them to get dressed to fight in whatever battle they were in.

So what do you think? Does not knowing who Revan is make you a fake fan? Well if you are a fake fan then you shouldn’t be reading this post as Faking Star Wars is for REAL fans only. Just kidding… or are we?
