You might be feeling a little paranoid right now if you haven’t had the chance to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi. As if the insane theories that plagued the internet leading up to the film’s premiere weren’t bad enough, now you have to deal with spoilers. Because, let’s be honest, people can get pretty loose with spoilers online.
And Star Wars: The Last Jedi is not a movie you want spoiled; we get that. Here are a few (pretty obvious) tips to get you through the weekend and, hopefully, make it to the theater unscathed.

Stay away from Twitter at all costs
Twitter is a minefield right now. Seriously, don’t go anywhere near it. But if you have to be on Twitter, then try and blacklist as many Star Wars names and words as you can think of. Stay away from the Last Jedi hashtag, don’t search for Star Wars GIFs, and please don’t fall prey to any trolls.
In other words: be vigilant, but also hide under a blanket and don’t come out until you see Last Jedi.
Be that person and don’t let your friends talk about it around you
I’m not saying you need to be aggressive with your friends and colleagues who have already seen Last Jedi; just make sure everyone knows you are firmly against spoilers. If those people are worth hanging around, then they’ll respect your wishes and not be dicks.
Harsh, but true.
Heed spoiler warnings; they’re there for a reason
Don’t get mad at someone because you made the bad decision to click on a link you know shouldn’t have clicked on in the first place. If you see the words Star Wars, Last Jedi, or any combination of those things, keep scrolling and avert your gaze until you see the movie.
Star Wars: The Last Jedi is now in theaters.
