Are you a fan of Hollywood actor Mark Hamill?
Then you should be happy to know that senpai
has finally took notice of us Malaysians, although by accident.
And how did that happen, you ask? It was because of one small error in his Twitter post.
The Star Online
reported that the actor, best known for his role as Luke Skywalker in the popular 'Star Wars' movie franchise, accidentally stumbled upon hoards of fans in Malaysia after he mistakenly used the Jalur Gemilang
flag emoji instead of the somewhat similar-looking American flag in a Tweet on Monday (12 January).
In the tweet, he expressed his disappointment at Facebook's decision to allow political campaigns to continue using targeted advertisements and he was considering deleting his own Facebook account.
He ended the tweet with a '🇲🇾>💰' -- supposedly to mean patriotism over profit -- but he accidentally used the Malaysian flag instead.
Of course, proud Malaysians (and some awesome Netizens) didn't let his little mistake slide:
After realising his mistake, which amused many people including himself, he corrected himself and finally used the correct flag.
He also mentioned that he "accidentally blundered into a LOAD of Malaysian followers":
Of course, Malaysians were quick to give him a very warm Malaysian welcome:
We've made it, you guys! Grand Master Jedi Luke Skywalker has finally acknowledged us young Padawans!
