    He met fans:

    And danced until his poor hips gave out:

    But not everyone was excited to see him enjoying himself so much, especially when it came to this video:

    @JohnBoyega It´s not funny. Can you imagine strong females like Padme, Leia or Rey in a similar situation? I can´t.…

    The commenter insinuated that "strong women" wouldn't dance like this and then went on to name fictional female characters like Princess Leia.

    Well, his fans quickly shut the negativity down and urged the commenter to let John enjoy his whine in pease:

    And for anyone unfamiliar with the term, whine is a Caribbean dance where you gyrate your hips.

    And the way John handled that whine made a lot of ladies upset they missed their chance to dance with him:

    So with all the love on his timeline, it's no wonder John is so hype to return to Carnival next year.
