Now they've really crossed a line. Not content to meddle in the foundation of American democracy, a new academic research paper has found that Russian trolls are also helping turn sci-fi fantasy entertainment fans against each other. Because apparently nothing is sacred anymore.
According to the final draft of a paper from journalist and author Morten Bay, he estimates that around 50 percent of the online hate-fest directed at what's come to be seen as a controversial addition to the Star Wars canon was "political trolling, some of it likely from Russia."
