While promoting the anticipated flick, Adam – who’s best known for playing Kylo Ren in Star Wars: The Force Awakens – came to The Empire’s defense by stating that The Rebellion was actually bad. “It’s not like people weren’t living on the Death Star,” Adam expressed (via Rolling Stone). “Isn’t that also an act of terrorism against the hundreds of thousands of people who died there?
