Sick racist fans threaten to boycott next James Bond movie if Aaron Taylor Johnson becomes 007

RACIST film fans have threatened to boycott the next James Bond movie if Jewish actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson is confirmed in the role.

The Sun told last week how the star, 33, has been offered the part — but he has since endured spiteful anti-Semitic comments online.

The hashtag #BoycottJamesBond has been widely shared on X/Twitter.

Blasting producers, one fan wrote: “Really bad timing with Israel committing genocide in Gaza. Shame on you. I hope your company collapses.”

Another wrote on Instagram: “Boycott Bond, Free Palestine.”

And a third said: “I wont buy a ticket for any of its movies. Will boycott all of it. Bunch of killers.”

The Community Security Trust, which records anti-Semitic incidents, has said Jews have faced a surge in attacks since Israel’s retaliation to Hamas terror attacks in October.

In 2022, The Sun on Sunday revealed that Aaron, of High Wycombe, Bucks, was in the running for the job after screen-testing for Bond supremo Barbara Broccoli at Pinewood Studios.

The star’s mother Sarah is Jewish with Russian ancestry.

In a 2015 interview Aaron told how he liked it when someone said he resembled a fashionable Hasidic Jew.

He said: “That was nice because I have really curly hair and also I’m Jewish.

“I try to chop and change. Play around, go a bit wild.”

Last week bookmaker Coral made Aaron the 2/1 favourite to take the role.

Asked this month whether he would step into Bond’s shoes, the actor, who is married to film director Sam Taylor-Johnson, 57, said: “I find it charming and wonderful that people see me in that role.

“I take it as a great compliment.”
