Star Wars voice actress Rachel Butera, who gives voice to General Leia Organa in the upcoming Star Wars Resistance animated series, mocked Dr. Christine Blasey Ford in a now deleted one minute video.

You can listen to the video below.

Ford is at the center of accusations surrounding President Donald J. Trump’s Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. Ford accused Kavanaugh of pinning her to a bed, covering her mouth, and trying to remove her clothes at a party in 1982.

Ford would testify at the Senate Judiciary Committee stating, “Brett groped me and tried to take off my clothes.” She added, “This was what terrified me the most and has had the most lasting impact on my life. It was hard for me to breathe and I thought Brett was accidentally going to kill me.”

However, according to Time, two other men claim to be the ones who were responsible for the encounter with Ford.

Butera’s mocking of Ford drew instant criticism. She deleted the Tweet, and locked down her Twitter account. It now appears to have been completely deleted.

But people piled on against and Butera and there were even calls for her to be fired from her role in Star Wars.

While tons of people were calling for Rachel Butera others noted they won’t be tuning into the show anymore.

One person even claimed that the entire female gender has disavowed Butera.

While some might find Butera’s mocking of Ford despicable. It’s nothing compared to what Star Wars writer Chuck Wendig or director Rian Johnson have called actual Star Wars fans. Wendig launched an expletive tirade where he referred to Star Wars fans as white supremacists. Johnson decided to not only blame the criticism he received for The Last Jedi on fans, but he also described them as manbabies. Their comments were definitely part of the reason why Solo: A Star Wars Story absolutely bombed at the box office. Yet, Star Wars and Lucasfilm has done nothing to them.

Butera merely mocked a woman, whose story is highly skeptical and appears to be politically motivated especially due to the timing of the allegation.

And while all of these people are calling for Butera’s head, none of them are calling out Patton Oswalt for his expletive laced Tweet against Lindsey Graham.

There aren’t numerous articles condemning or calling for the firing of the numerous Twitter users with blue check marks who insulted Brett Kavanaugh.

If Disney does in fact fire Butera over mocking Ford, it will further damage the companies brand among conservatives. Many will see them as a full on political company, that is no longer interested in creating actual entertainment. Even if Butera herself doesn’t like Trump.
