Carrie Fisher Responds To Slave Leia Complaints



It's been said that since Disney now owns the rights to Star Wars, they will not be producing any more merchandise of Slave Leia.

Recently also saw a father complain about a Star Wars Slave Leia toy -- in that he didn't know how to explain it to his daughters, which went viral.

Now word of the incident has reached Carrie Fisher who offers up her own explanations to the guy's daughters.

Via WSJ:

There’s been some debate recently about whether there should be no more merchandise with you in the “Return of the Jedi” bikini.

I think that’s stupid.

To stop making the merchandise?

The father who flipped out about it, “What am I going to tell my kid about why she’s in that outfit?” Tell them that a giant slug captured me and forced me to wear that stupid outfit, and then I killed him because I didn’t like it. And then I took it off. Backstage.

And again via LA Times:

How about telling his daughter that the character is wearing that outfit not because she’s chosen to wear it. She’s been forced to wear it. She’s a prisoner of a giant testicle who has a lot of saliva going on and she does not want to wear that thing and it’s ultimately that chain, which you’re now indicating is some sort of accessory to S&M, that is used to kill the giant saliva testicle…. That’s asinine.
