Amy Schumer Upsets Star Wars Fans Causing Disney To Respond
Schumer, who wrote and is currently starring in Trainwreck, is shown with C3PO's finger in her mouth on the cover of the magazine as well as inside with a lightsaber in her mouth and naked in bed with R2-D2 and C3PO.
Fans have taken to Twitter to voice their dissent, which has caused Disney to officially respond.
"I can't believe Disney and Star Wars are allowing GQ Magazine to do this DISTASTEFUL Star Wars spread. Shame on all of you," one Star Wars fans tweeted.
It turns out, Disney LucasFilm didn't approve of the photo shoot.
"Lucasfilm and Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner," the official Star Wars Twitter account replied.
Apparently, GQ was able to do the Amy Schumer Star Wars photo shoot without permission because it's considered a parody, which is allowed by copyright law.
