Darth Vader has been turned away from Burnley Technical College for attending in his full outfit. Dressed from head to toe in black Vader certainly cuts an imposing figure. It was feared that he may intimidate other students and disrupt the learning environment.
College Principal Stan Niggazout said "I'm not being disrespectful to other cultures in any way whatsoever. Anybody would think that this was a place of learning and we were supposed to be broadminded. Well it isn't and we're not. There is no place for religious regalia in our college. Here in Burnley different communities should not try to learn understanding of each other. If someone looks different or foreign then they should be made to feel different or foreign."
Vader responded by saying "This is me, it is how I dress. My outfit is an extension of my personality and beliefs. I just want the same rights and freedoms as other students."
