Republican Sen. Ted Cruz and “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill traded barbs over net neutrality on Twitter Sunday after Mr. Hamill accused FCC Chairman Ajit Pai of being a corporate shill.

The man best known for his role as Luke Skywalker trashed Mr. Pai as “profoundly unworthy” to be a Jedi after the FCC chairman dressed as Santa Claus and wielded a lightsaber in a goofy video celebrating his successful bid to repeal net neutrality laws.

Mr. Cruz chimed in Sunday with his own “Star Wars” references, saying villain Darth Vader would have supported “govt power over everything said & done on the Internet.”

That’s when Mr. Hamill took a shot at Mr. Cruz’s faux pas back in September, when his Twitter account “liked” a porn video called “Moms Bang Teens 20,” which the senator later blamed on a “staffing issue.”

Mr. Cruz criticized the actor for responding with “anger” instead of facts and said the repeal of net neutrality laws is a win for freedom.
