The last time we discussed Star Wars, it was over SJW’s wanting to retroactively ban Princess Leia’s “slave girl” costume because they hate women being sexy. It’s not “brave” for hot women to be hot (read Dear Fat Feminists: Being Naked While Unattractive is not ‘Brave’). Now, apparently the liberals want to ban movie theaters in England from showing an andervisement for the Church of England The Lord’s Prayer before The Force Awakens. You know who thinks that’s a stupid idea? Princess Leia hereself, Carrie Fisher.
The 59-year-old, who is reviving her role as Princess Leia in the latest Star Wars blockbuster which opens a week before Christmas, said: ‘I have no idea why they would do that.’
The Mail on Sunday revealed last week how Digital Cinema Media – which supplies advertising to the vast majority of British cinemas – had blocked the one-minute film because it feared the advert could offend moviegoers.
But Ms Fisher responded: ‘Offended? No. People should get a life.’
‘I don’t think it is offensive to have a “power of prayer” advert before Star Wars.’
This is that “offensive” advertisement in question…
If you were looking for the “offensive” part of the advert, here’s a hint: people are PRAYING TO GOD! OMG. Yeah, that was it. No one blowing anything up. No one committing adultery. No twerking ala Miley Cyrus. No one got fat-shamed, no Gays were called bad names. Puppies were also not harmed in the advertisement. There was zero violence of any kind. Zero sexual situations of any kind. Got it? So all those trailers you see before a movie which contain everything I just listed? Not offensive. But people praying to God? Offensive.
For those of you playing along, a two hour movie about a fictional religious belief known as “the force”? Not offensive. No trigger warnings. Even though Han Solo can be kind of rough around the edges with all that not returning the “I love you,” in Empire Strikes Back. Scumbag.
A one minute commercial about prayer to an actual religious belief? Offensive. Because people believing in something greater than themselves which is not climate change or Barack Obama? Needs to go. Toss it out the window with morality.
That said…oh my gawd, it’s only three weeks until Star Wars!
