Ever since The Mandalorian hit screens, people have been gushing over baby Yoda. But now the little green creature has recently been "cancelled" after an episode of the hit show The Mandalorian  left viewers feeling pretty disturbed...

Unless you've been living under a rock...

You'll probably know who Baby Yoda is.

The world is obsessed with him.

Ever since he popped up in Disney's Star Wars spin-off series, The Mandalorian, the world simply can't get enough.

It was an unexpected but welcomed appearance.

The baby version of the iconic character is one of the most adorable things we've ever seen. He's even become the subject of a meme craze - with hundreds of utterly brilliant memes being created surrounding the little guy.

The internet instantly gushed over the fifty-year-old baby.

The real Yoda died in Return of the Jedi, at about nine-hundred years old, so while it may not seem it, fifty is pretty much newborn for this unknown species.

It's been the highlight of The Mandalorian for many.

Soon after the show dropped, people flocked to Twitter to announce how they literally cannot live without the adorable little creature.

And he's become an internet sensation.

The little guy has won over the hearts of Star Wars fans.

And, like these things always do...

Baby Yoda quickly became 2019's latest meme.

Baby Yoda well and truly got the viral treatment...

And his cute little face began popping up from all corners of the internet.

He even got crowned as the most popular baby of 2019...

Yep, really. The fifty-year-old green baby managed to race ahead of the likes of baby Archie, according to Google’s ‘Year in Search 2019’.

Not to mention all the merch that's been released...

Which, of course, has pretty much sold out everywhere.

And we even got to see the character in its earliest form...

But we have to admit, it was pretty terrifying...

The image was unveiled during an episode of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian.

The show gives a behind the scenes look at the making of the hit series.

A lot of the BTS show focuses on baby Yoda.

The process of creating Baby Yoda is detailed during the episode...

As well as how "the baby" was filmed.

The episode also emphasized how a real puppet was used instead of CGI.

The decision to go old school with the character was apparently down to committing to the magic of it.

But when viewers saw what Baby Yoda was originally supposed to look like...

Well, they were suitably disturbed.

Baby Yoda's adorable appearance is part of the appeal.

So, let's just say, the certainty dodged a bullet with this one.

The early design shows Baby Yoda looking much older...

And much creepier.

He also has a much more bulbous design.

As well as extra hair.

Here it is:

Thank goodness the team landed on the right design for the green baby because that is nightmare-inducing.

But now, it seems as though the little creature has upset some viewers.

After a particular episode of The Mandalorian aired last week, people have been calling for "cancel culture" to add baby Yoda to the list.

And to say we were shocked to find this out would be an understatement...

But why are people calling for such a dramatic action on a fictional character?

It's all because of some eggs.

That's right, the little creature snacked on the eggs of an "endangered galactic species."

In Chapter 10 of the Disney+ show, titled “The Passenger," the “Frog Lady" is taken to a distant galaxy by a bounty hunter so she can fertilize her canister of eggs.

If she did not manage to get to her mate on time to make sure that happens, her entire species would come to an end...

But throughout the episode, Baby Yoda is caught reaching his little green hand into the container in order to help himself to the eggs... Yeah, it all sounds pretty disgusting but here's the deal: It's not real.

But that hasn't stopped some people from emphasizing that we should all "cancel" baby Yoda for his crime.

What was supposed to be a funny and light-hearted episode turned into a giant media frenzy in which the episode was taken extremely seriously. One user wrote on Twitter: “I just wanna know who thought this was a good idea. Like... 'we have this woman whose species is facing extinction and she's very protective of these her eggs.' ‘We should have Baby Yoda eat them.’ ‘Hey yay dude, bro high five’ Like what????"

Another wrote:

“I hated him because he ate the eggs of a lady frog and her species. IT'S AN EXTINCTION!!!!" Is it really that deep?

Others even referred to it as a "genocide."

Maybe putting our energy into making sure real-life genocides stop taking place (eg. the Uighurs, the Yemenis, etc) would be more helpful than working to cancel a fictional character for eating fictional unfertilized eggs in a fictional world.
