GQ chose Amy Schumer for their annual Comedy Issue which featured a photo layout of Schumer mixed into the Star Wars Universe. It was a hot post last week, with a lot of mixed reactions from fans. Disney came out later with a Twitter statement labeling the photo shoot as an inappropriate use of their characters that they: didn’t approve, participate in, or condone.
