Amy Schumer is quickly rising to the head of the class of current comedians. Her brand of humor is not for everyone but those who get her sense of humor find her sharp and smart.
George Lucas isn’t a big fan at the moment.
For a GQ cover story, Schumer appears in several “Star Wars” theme photos. And, these are not the reverent kind of photos reserved for the most loved movies.
One photo shows a topless Schumer in bed, between R2-D2 and CP3O (who is smoking).
Schumer is dressed in the slave outfit that made Carrie Fisher so popular on the cover of the magazine. She’s sucking C3PO’s finger. There’s also a photo of her in the white Princess Leia oufit in a car with Yoda, Chewbacca and C3PO.
Lucasfilm has made the following statement on its “Star Wars” Twitter account: “Lucasfilm & Disney didn’t approve, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner.”
The August edition of the magazine features a story on the “Some of the Funniest People in the Galaxy.”
