Daisy Ridley delivered an epic burn directed at Ted Cruz, the Senator from Texas, amid his controversy over going on a last minute vacation to Mexico while his state was in the middle of a massive weather emergency.
Well, in a new interview, the Senator’s comments about Gina Carano being fired from The Mandalorian resurfaced. Gina was fired, if you don’t remember, for comparing being a conservative in America today to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.
“Texan Gina Carano broke barriers in the Star Wars universe: not a princess, not a victim, not some emotionally tortured Jedi,” Cruz said. “She played a woman who kicked ass & who girls looked up to. She was instrumental in making ‘Star Wars’ fun again. Of course Disney canceled her.”
In an interview with Yahoo, Daisy was asked about Cruz’s statement.
She responded, “I am very happy to be an emotionally tortured Jedi who doesn’t leave their state when it’s having a terrible time.”
Ted Cruz‘s wife’s texts were actually leaked amid all the drama surrounding their tropical vacation.
