Slave Leia is This Week\’s Outrage Overreaction

|

Slave Leia OutrageAnother week and another thing the outrage culture we live in now wants banned, and this time it’s a Star Wars subject…Slave Leia.

Because some people have been living in a basement for more than thirty years, they’re just now realizing that Carrie Fisher wore a metal bikini in Return of the Jedi and that they make action figures of the character. This all originates from a sensationalist bit of non-reporting from a “journalist” who should honestly be fired from a Fox station WTXF in Philadelphia. This guy actually allowed idiots who were offended by Hasbro’s 6″ Slave Leia action figure to express their stupidity, despite the action figure being on shelves for about two years now:

“That’s pretty inappropriate,” he said. “I got two daughters I don’t need seeing that crap.”

The toy features a scantily clad version of Princess Leia complete with a chain around her neck. The toy even had dad blushing.

“They’re like ‘dad why does this doll have a chain around its neck?’. I don’t have any answers. I was just blown away looking at it,” Hill said.

Even his kids thought the toy meant for ages 4-and-up may be better suited for adults.

We showed the action figure to other parents who had a similar reaction.

“It’s a little indecent. A little more clothing would have helped,” Eugenia Mirica said.

“It’s just a bit much for a child. So, no, I probably wouldn’t give this to my 4-year-old and maybe not an 8-year-old,” Tiffany Mahan said.

That’s right people. Due to the outrage over an action figure from a higher-end collector’s line that’s not even intended for children, people now want Disney to clover up Slave Leia. We probably only have a couple of days before one of these geniuses realizes that DISNEY now owns Star Wars and they file a lawsuit for them to ban Return of the Jedi. Why doesn’t Disney think of the children?! Disney is the biggest legal target on the planet, and if they can get sued over a stubbed toe at Disneyland, they’ll probably get sued over this.

Making matters even worse is the timing of this GQ cover featuring comedian Amy Schumer. It’s not know yet if Lucasfilm approved the photo shoot, but this cover is coming at the absolute worst time when people are trying to make Slave Leia the latest thing to be censored by peer pressure:

Lets see GQ try that same photo shoot with Mickey Mouse and see how quickly they’re hit by the Disney lawyer bus.
