On June 17th, TIME Magazine posted an article listing the Top 10 Worst Fictional Dads. Darth Vader came in at #3. So, in retaliation, Death Star PR submitted an open letter to the magazine.
So many parents don’t even care where their children are, or what they’re up to, no matter the time of day or night. Not Darth Vader. When he couldn’t find Luke, Vader dispatched thousands of remote probes into the far reaches of space. This was in spite of the fact that Luke had just become the Galaxy’s Most Wanted terrorist, almost killed his dad and blown up 1.3 million of his friends and workmates. Are those the actions of a bad father?
I can only hope that someone from TIME responds back. It won’t happen, but we can only hope.
The entire letter can be found here.
