Director Rian Johnson starts the chain of laughter at the petty misogyny that has haunted the film since its release in December.
The controversial 46-minute cut was uploaded to The Pirate Bay on Monday and not only omitted shots of female fighters, pilots and officers, but also all of the scenes that showcased Laura Dern's character, Admiral Haldo, and the late Carrie Fisher's General Leia.
"It can now at least be viewed without feeling nauseous about most of the terrible big and small decisions they made in this film," the person behind the video wrote in the description. "Also, at least the intro sequence is now very watchable and actually much cooler without all of Leia's nitpicking."
Director and writer Rian Johnson kicked off the LOLing on Twitter when he noticed headlines reporting on the 46-minute fan edit.

Episode VIII in the "Star Wars" saga was praised by critics, but trashed by a lot of fans who weren't completely satisfied for one reason or another. Much like "The Force Awakens" was a magnet for sexist trolls complaining about the inclusion of strong female Jedi -- Rey, played by Daisy Ridley -- "The Last Jedi" only incensed that particular group of haters even more since the ladies in the movie made most of the most impactful decisions.
