Daisy Ridley Delivers Epic Ted Cruz Burn After He Insults Her 'Star Wars' Character

Daisy Ridley delivered an epic burn directed at Ted Cruz, the Senator from Texas, amid his controversy over going on a last minute vacation to Mexico while his state was in the middle of a massive weather emergency.

Well, in a new interview, the Senator’s comments about Gina Carano being fired from The Mandalorian resurfaced. Gina was fired, if you don’t remember, for comparing being a conservative in America today to being Jewish in Nazi Germany.

“Texan Gina Carano broke barriers in the Star Wars universe: not a princess, not a victim, not some emotionally tortured Jedi,” Cruz said. “She played a woman who kicked ass & who girls looked up to. She was instrumental in making ‘Star Wars’ fun again. Of course Disney canceled her.”

In an interview with Yahoo, Daisy was asked about Cruz’s statement.

She responded, “I am very happy to be an emotionally tortured Jedi who doesn’t leave their state when it’s having a terrible time.”

Ted Cruz‘s wife’s texts were actually leaked amid all the drama surrounding their tropical vacation.

Ted Cruz, the Senator from Texas who came under fire last week for traveling to Cancun during the state’s winter weather emergency.

Last week, the New York Times obtained text messages that Ted‘s wife Heidi Cruz allegedly sent to friends and Houston neighbors on Wednesday (February 17), the same day they were spotted flying to Mexico.

Now, Cruz is responding to the leaked texts. It’s unclear which of Ted’s friends or neighbors leaked the texts.

“It’s a sign of how ridiculously politicized and nasty and just… Here’s a suggestion: Just don’t be assholes. Just treat each other as human beings. Have some degree, some modicum of respect,” Cruz said on the “Ruthless” podcast.

Cruz later admitted that he intended to stay in Mexico for longer than he originally stated.
