Posted via her Instagram a couple of days ago, Trainwreck star Amy Schumer has a new photoshoot in the latest issue of GQ Magazine, which sees the comedian in several racy poses with the droids of Star Wars, C-3PO and R2-D2. The photoshoot caused quite a stir, but a group of people it seemed to really upset were Lucasfilm, who released a statement about the images.
“We’ve seen some conversation on this and want to set the record straight. It’s not surprising that GQ would want to capitalize on the cultural cachet of Star Wars, but Lucasfilm and Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner.”
