Just recently, I came across an article that caught my attention. It featured some unpopular opinions, or in other words, it was an article that was just throwing shade. I know everyone has the right to their own opinions, but when they start to attack something you love, you just have to retaliate. What set me off was when I saw a beautiful picture of Baby Yoda and then right under it read the caption saying he was an abomination. How could someone describe Baby Yoda as being an abomination? I just can’t understand what makes him cause disgust.

Within the first four episodes of The Mandalorian, you get to see Baby Yoda doing what he does best, which is being cute. Baby Yoda is 50 years old, but with his species the aging isn’t the same as humans. While a 50-year-old human may look really old, 50-year-old Baby Yoda looks like a toddler. What’s not to love about a toddler? They are small, can barely walk, and have the cutest faces. What makes Baby Yoda so special, though, is the poses he does. The way he looks at something is adorable. Once you look Baby Yoda in his shiny black eyes you are hooked. It’s like he’s staring into your soul, and for once you feel a real connection. The wrinkles on his forehead make it look like he’s always concerned, which adds to his cuteness. And his little baby hands moving in the air just make you want to pick him up and hug him.

Baby Yoda does not deserve this hate he is receiving. He has done nothing but brighten the lives of many. He has been a meme for the last month, bringing joy and laughter to almost everyone’s  screens he’s come across. The last time I checked Baby Yoda was out there being a kid and playing with a frog, not making people cry and cringe. Baby Yoda is a symbol for beauty and peace, not disgust.
