Carrie Fisher Delivered A Cow Tongue To A Hollywood Producer With A Threat

Screenwriter Heather Robinson said that after she told Fisher about how she had to beat the advances of a Hollywood executive, the Star Wars actor personally delivered him this gift with a menacing note.

Once a Hollywood producer with predatory activities was personally given a Tiffany box containing a cow’s tongue, according to a friend of the late star.

Screenwriter Heather Robinson revealed that Fisher had to intervene after the unidentified executive, who is an Oscar winner, tried to force himself on Robinson in his car.

Robinson shared with Arizona radio station called 94.9 MixFM about how two weeks after she had narrated the incident to Fisher, she got an email from the Star Wars actor mentioning how Carrie had personally delivered the infamous Tiffany box to Sony Studios, where the executive was.

“It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said: ‘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,’” Robinson said.

Robinson claimed to have never discussed the incident which dated back to 2000, due to her fear of retribution. “It happened so quickly that I was ashamed of myself. I thought that I had done something wrong. I thought that having lunch or dinner with him, I was asking for it. So I stayed quiet for years because I didn’t want the retribution,” she said.

She further stated that the prevalent scandal around Harvey Weinstein was a slice of a much larger abusive culture in Hollywood “It happens all the time,” she said. “There’s a very well-known director who I’ve been friends with for a long time. I thought that he was amazing. I got a message from somebody that said ‘I just wanted you to know that I appreciated you speaking up and this person raped me, and you should know that.’”

After the allegations surfaced, Weinstein was fired by the board of The Weinstein Company, and he has been facing allegations of sexual abuse by dozens of women. Sallie Hofmeister, his spokesperson, stated: “Any allegations of non-consensual sex are unequivocally denied by Mr. Weinstein. With respect to any women who have made allegations on the record, Mr. Weinstein believes that all of these relationships were consensual.”

Fisher had died in December 2016, after she suffered a medical emergency while onboard an international flight. She was renowned for her portrayal of Leia Organa in Star Wars franchise and has been a part of various other movies such as The Blues Brothers When Harry Met Sally… and Hannah and Her Sisters.
