Star Wars hires Harvey Weinstein's assistant to make 'Gayest Star Wars ever'

"People have told me that it's the gayest Star Wars and frankly I am into it."


The showrunner for the latest Star Wars franchise show with Disney Plus is glad that it's being considered the "gayest Star Wars ever." Leslye Headland, who was previously an assistant to disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, was asked about rumors that the show was LGBTQ-centric in an interview with The Wrap. The show premiered on Tuesday. 

"I wanna ask you about this," The Wrap's Drew Taylor began, "because this is arguably the gayest Star Wars yet by a considerable margin." Headland and star of The Acolyte Amandla Stenberg cracked up laughing. 

"Are you exciting about that? Are you bracing yourselves?" Taylor continued.

"Not the gayest Star Wars!" Headland joked.

"It's pretty gay, let's be honest," Taylor said. "Leslye, how do you feel?"

"Am I gay?" She countered. "Yes." Taylor joked that he knew that she was gay, and pressed about how that gayness impacted The Acolyte. 

"I know you're gay, but are you excited about—this is going to be a talking point," he said.

"Is it gonna be a talking point?" Headland said with surprise.

"Because nerds are gay," Stenberg said. The three went back and forth on if nerds are really gay or if only some nerds are gay and others are turned off by things that are very explicitly gay.

Taylor expressed that "some nerds are very not gay and are threatened by gay stuff."

"In my world," Stenberg said, "nerds are gay." They all laughed. 

"Is this a fun element of—" Taylor said.

"No," Headland said, "but people have told me that it's the gayest Star Wars and frankly I am—"

"Are you offended?" Stenberg laughed.

"—into it," Headland is.

Stenberg said "I think that Star Wars is so gay already." They all agreed that C3P0 is gay and that R2D2 is a lesbian. The Acolyte is a prequel to Star Wars and is a mystery about a Jedi Master who investigates crimes. 

Disney and Star Wars have already staked their collective claim to complete gayness and gender ideology. A former Star Wars star of The Mandalorian was fired and culturally cancelled for speaking out against the pronoun requirements by Disney. Gina Carano said her pronouns were "beep/bop/boop" and criticized Covid vaccine requirements and mandates. She lost her job, her agent, her standing in the entertainment industry, and has launched a lawsuit against Disney for wrongful termination.

The wokeness at Disney has been rampant. The studio came under fire as well by X owner Elon Musk who said "this is getting ridiculous" when a new director was hired to said "it's about time that we had a woman come forward to shape the story."

The show is far from being a fan favorite. It has less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes. Character, stor development, proximity to cannon were all bashed by fans. Headland previously created Russian Doll on Netflix with Natasha Lyonne.
