Carrie Fisher has come out in support of Hasbro’s Princess Leia action figure after offended parents complained about the doll’s enslaved bondage look.

The Star Wars Black Series action figure, meant for ages 4 and up, has Princess Leia with a chain around her neck and wearing what the box describes as a “slave outfit.”

“That’s pretty inappropriate,” one father told a local Fox affiliate. “I got two daughters I don’t need seeing that crap.”

“It’s just a bit much for a child,” one mother said. “So, no, I probably wouldn’t give this to my 4-year-old and maybe not an 8-year-old.”

The toy is sold by retailers across the country for about $15-20.

Responding to the complaints, Ms. Fisher, who played Leia in all three films, tweeted: “SlaveLeiaDollsR causingOUTRAGE 4Sum parents onFox TV& Im thinking-if folksR outraged NOW, shouldnt I have beenOUTRAGED40yrs ago?MAYBE I WAS!” Mediaite first reported.

“That chain only ‘enslaved’ me until I could use the frabjous thing to KILL THAT DROOLING SWOLLEN SUPERTONGUED SLUG&whirl him off into infinity,” she added.
