Revenge of the Fifth or Revenge of the Sixth?
Mexicans have been complaining on Star Wars social media pages over the placement of the holiday coming after May the Fourth (be with you).
The secondary holiday is a play on the title of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.
On the Facebook page of the 501st Legion (an all-volunteer organization formed for the express purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate) a debate broke out amongst fans when posting a 'Revenge of the Fifth' meme.
A Mexican fan posted a meme saying “I find your lack of faith disturbing. It's Revenge of the Sixth, not Fifth.”
One fan countered with, “Sorry Not Sorry... There are 1,040,000 Google hits for "Revenge of the Fifth" (plus, it suggests adding "Star Wars" to the search). In comparison, there are only 303,000 hits for "Revenge of the Sixth." You can't fight the Internet!”
Others, just like the empire, began striking back.
“Revenge of the Sixth sounds better,” said several commentators.
While May the Fourth is an official Star Wars holiday, the same can not be said about Revenge of the Fifth (or Sixth), and is widely a fan-created second tier event.
