Where Are They Now? ‘Star Wars Kid’ 13 Years Later [VIDEO]
Remember the "Star Wars Kid" video that went viral back in 2002? It was a chubby kid pretending he was Darth Maul from"The Phantom Menace", swinging a stick like it was a double-bladed lightsaber. Guess what he's up to now!
People loved it because of how ungraceful and nerdy he was, and it's gotten more than 30 million hits since then. But this poor kid didn't mean for this to be public.
Ghyslain Raza was a 15-year-old from Quebec. Another kid at school found his video and posted it online. Then he got bullied so much, he had to drop out and get a private tutor.
But the good news is he's managed to get past it. "Business Insider" recently did a "where are they now" write-up on a bunch of YouTube people, and he was one of them. Yeah, he got past it, He's currently helping other kids deal with cyberbullying. He also graduated from college back in 2011, and now he's back in school to get his law degree.
Chalk one up for the geeks. Good for him!
