"Hey, we don't serve their kind here."
"What?"
"Your droids. They'll have to wait outside. We don't want them here."
Luke Skywalker and bartender Wuher, in the Mos Eisley Cantina.[src]

A deep-seated anti-droid sentiment existed in some segments of the galactic citizenry. The relationship between organics and mechanicals was rocky from early on, as could be attested by historical records of ancient uprisings and clashes that took place as droids became increasingly commonplace. Some came to fear them, regarding them as an "existential threat to biological life."[1]

However, it was the Clone Wars, a three-year pan-galactic conflict that pitted the Galactic Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, that exacerbated the prejudice towards automatons. Because the Confederacy's army was entirely made of battle droids, the Republic found a way to feeding on the prejudice, issuing a large amount of propaganda pieces showcasing terrifying robots. In the Core Worlds, far from the front lines of the early Clone Wars, businessbeings and government workers started fearing that their personal assistant droids had been co-opted with spyware to become mechanical eyes and ears for the enemy.[1]

Eventually, the Republic won the war, and was re-formed into an autocratic Galactic Empire. Due to their bad memories of the conflict, many people remained fearful or distrustful of droids.[2]
