There are a few reasons one might not want to mess with "Star Wars" actor John Boyega. After all, his best friend is Harrison Ford and he's made it clear that he's not afraid to shut down trolls on Twitter.  

Boyega did just that when a few critics decided to take issue with his tweet about Black History Month on Monday: 

One Twitter troll replied to the actor, writing, "happy racially divided month" in a since deleted tweet captured by BuzzFeed.

Boyega, who has no time for haters, fired back with a hilarious and classy-as-f**k response. 

Boyega continued to silence the trolls with the use of emojis and the spectacular phrase, "please take several seats."

Finn will slay you on Twitter.

Boyega has dealt with racist critics before, when many protested his role as stormtrooper in the recent "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" film. 

"I'm grounded in who I am, and I am a confident black man. A confident, Nigerian, black, chocolate man," Boyega told The New York Times. "I'm proud of my heritage, and no man can take that away from me. I wasn’t raised to fear people with a difference of opinion. They are merely victims of a disease in their mind. To get into a serious dialogue with people who judge a person based on the melanin in their skin? They’re stupid, and I’m not going to lose sleep over people." 

Preach, Finn!
