In response to the re-edit of FanBoys, to remove the cancer subplot, certain members of the 501st protested and are boycotting Weinstein films. The production company, under pressure from hordes of Star Wars fans, say they will now release it on DVD in both the original and non cancer cuts. They are also looking into screening the original cut in theaters.
The 501st members involved say they won't budge until the "version without heart" is done away with. They are not acting under the order of the 501st as a whole but the boycott seems to be spearheaded by some individual members.
