Carrie Fisher Responds To The Slave Leia Bikini Controversy

imageAs we all remember in Return of The Jedi, when Princess Leia was held captive by Jabba The Hutt and forced to wear the metal bikini outfit we all have imprinted into our minds, has been under controversy lately with Disney, who now owns the franchise is trying to phase the costume out of their merchandising, well Princess Leia herself Carrie Fisher had a great response:

“I think that’s stupid. 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.”
