    So I linked it in a different post and I don't want to start anything up, but there was some controversy earlier today reported by ScreenRant. Just wanted to update people.

    https://screenrant.com/star-wars-rachel-butera-dr-blasey-ford/


    The story is that Rachel Butera made an unflattering video about Dr. Blasey Ford and today's Hearing. The video was taken down, but popular Star Wars media members such as Geek Girl Diva, Star Wars Explained, and Emma Fyffe have criticized Rachel for her comments.

    Whether or not they affect her future roles as General Organa have yet to be seen, but I'm sure we'll be notified soon.

    This is despicable.

    It's Biff Tannen's time in the USA and some people will really love this.

    Why do people don't think before they post on Twitter? Knowing how the whole Kavanaugh controversy is dividing the nation into passionate sides, some topics are best not to mock on a public platform if you don't want to reap the backlash. I don't think Rachel should be fired over this, but people need to realize that their actions could cost them their job. I doubt that Disney will, nor should fire her, but if this mocking of Dr. Ford's voice creates too much controversy that Disney does not want to be directed at their Children's T.V. show and Rachel's actions cost them money - Disney has the fiduciary right to fire Ms. Rachel Butera.

    I had wondered if there was a last minute edit in the first episode, did Leia actually have a line when Kaz fell in on the holocommunication? Don't get me wrong, her silence was the perfect kind of awkward, however I wonder if it was intended that way initially.
