Star Wars fans really aren't happy with Amy Schumer's provocative GQ photo shoot

The studio has even come out to say they had nothing to do with it.


THE COVER OF this month’s GQ has been turning heads over the last couple of days, as it shows the comedian Amy Schumer as Princess Leia in a number of suggestive and comedic poses with other Star Wars characters.

As tongue-in-cheek and hilarious as most people find the photos, there has been somewhat of a backlash from die hard Star Wars fans over what they see as an inappropriate use of classic characters.

They took to Twitter to let it be known that they weren’t happy

And last night, the official Star Wars Twitter account confirmed that the studio had nothing to do with the shoot

In general, Star Wars fans were a bit upset over the whole thing

The shoot shows the comedian in all sorts of poses with characters like R2-D2 and C-3PO from the franchise

And, outside of some Star Wars fans, loads of people are loving it

Thinking it’s absolutely gas, and that Princess Leia is a well known character in pop culture and worthy of some fun

With some basically saying they don’t care that Star Wars aren’t happy

And Amy’s fans don’t love her any less for it

Can’t we all just get along?
