The Wall Street Journal asked actress Carrie Fisher, for her thoughts on the controversy surrounding "Slave Leia" themed toys being sold to children. Fisher has previously shared her feelings on Twitter, but has now provided a perfect way to explain the toy to your kids:
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.
It's a teaching opportunity, parents!
