Can we talk about how that whole subplot breaks Star Wars, btw?

I mean, that is a direction you can go, sure, but I don't think its very profitable long term.

You should probably have read up on this burt cos once again you’re wrong.

Phoebe was pretty much allowed ad lib a lot of it and asked could she play it very abritish humour and they said go for it.

Sure she was meant to be humorous, and they were definitely playing with the idea of droids as slaves, but I dont think she was meant to be a total farce.

Or maybe she's a remnant of the original script/movie that the first directors made (where she was supposed to be a satirical character) that now doesn't work in the context of the new movie. I could see the producers getting cold feet about her being a joke of a character and kinda (in their minds) retconning her into something less insulting. They failed of course. She stands out like a sore thumb. I don't know how you put that character in the movie and then expect her death to be anything less than funny. People were clapping when Lando tried to pick her up.

What a mess.

But I really want to see the original cut of this movie now. I think I'm starting to see why they were really fired.

Guys! I got a mean direct message on Twitter from someone saying they wanted to "cum in my eye sockets"! My friend got one of a picture of himself covered in cum!

In light of the current environment, please refrain from criticizing me or my work until such time as trolling has been eliminated from Twitter. Thank you for you understanding while I deal with this vicious organized hate campaign against me. Also you can pre-order Scurry book 2. Hurry while supplies last!

Man, you really a piece of work aren't you? Do you feel better now? Did you win? Can we move on or... ?

that was totally a true story btw. I was APPALLED.

this is actually an interesting conversation to have, but it goes all the way back to the first moments of a new hope. droids have always been troubling. solo just named it

It seems certain fragile egos only want women on screen if they’re lezzing out and fingering each other.

Colour me shocked.
