Carrie Fisher, the gawd

While the world is only just catching on to the sexual predators plaguing virtually all sectors of life for women, like the systemic killing of POCs, it's only becoming a reality to those not directly effected by it, mostly due to the corrective powers of social media transparency.

Which is to say that while your timeline may be flooded with painful #metoo recollections and men finally pledging to hold their peers accountable, you can expect the days ahead to be littered with even more accounts from those that are finally comfortable enough (or have sacrificed their comfort to pull the veil off an epidemic) to share their story.

And while Harvey Weinstein has been made an example, and his ousting from Hollywood and any political sphere he may have infiltrated is worthy of at least a temporary celebration, one tale that might stretch the smile into a slight cackle, is that of the late Carrie Fisher's.

According to Consequence of Sound, in a recent interview with Arizona's 94.9 MixFM, writer Heather Ross, detailed her a close relationship with the Star Wars icon, and a very Weinstein-like encounter with a high-powered Hollywood producer, when she was pinned-down by the anonymous exes in the back of her car after being invited to a "business diner."

Ross claims to have escaped, but revealed that upon being told of the incident, Fisher tracked down the producer at Sony Studios, and promptly "delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow." Inside, a severed cow tongue from a famed Studio City deli and a note that read "If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box!"

Bless Carrie Fisher and anyone that's ever been subject to this abhorrent treatment for just being a breathing woman. Jerry's Famous Deli has four locations in the greater Los Angeles area. The price of cow tongue may vary.
