For their comedy issue GQ had Amy Schumer, the girl on top on the comedy world right now, pose in provocative situations with beloved Star Wars characters.
She went to a gay bar with Chewbacca, R2-D2 and C-3PO.
The jokes even went so far as to have the Trainwreck star pretend to have an erotic threesome with the imaginary characters from the fictional movie. “I fingered R2-D2 and then C-3PO fisted me,” Schumer says while laying in bed with both fake robots. Which to be very honest, both sexual activities seem very farfetched, almost impossible. But come to think of it, the Industrial Automaton Astromech (R2-D2 for you non-nerds) does have a lubrication arm, so I guess anything is possible.
Amy grabs C-3PO’s mechanical hands and says, “Look at these things! This is horrible, and a lot of pain.” She then proceeds to give an interview from her bed because as she says, “I’m not moving for a week.”
It’s funny stuff, especially when you imagine the logistics of it all and C-3PO being talked into the extreme sexual act, not to mention that the droids are in fact droids. Well pretty funny unless you’re Disney. See Disney bought the Star Wars franchise from Lucasfilm for $4 billion in 2012. And come December 18, 2015 Disney is releasing The Force Awakens, their first movie in the Star Wars franchise and they want it to make a gazillion dollars. And it’s very likely that it will make a gazillion dollars for the Mickey mouse company, however they don’t want anything to mess up their earnings potential. That means having some uniformed mom in Nebraska see GQ’s photoshoot of Amy Schumer naked in bed with their droids and thinking it’s from the actual Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie, and then she’ll get all overprotective and not allow her 13-year-old kid to go see the movie because she thinks that Amy Schumer is going to be blowing droids in the film.
So on Friday, after some nerds questioned the official Star Wars Twitter account as to why they allowed GQ to use imitations of the fake robots, Disney responded by saying this:

Relax Star Wars geeks, no one is besmirching the good name of Star Wars, it’s all in good fun and R2-D2 and C-3PO seemed to be very happy after blowing a gasket with Amy.
