Captain Kirk Escalates His War of Words with Princess Leia

First Shatner dissed Star Wars. Then Carrie Fisher dissed Star Trek and Captain Kirk. Now William Shatner has responded, and… well, just watch. I think I see what Shatner’s trying to do, and I don’t think he means to be quite as mean as he comes off — I think he’s talking more about the sagging that comes from getting older more than outright calling Carrie Fisher fat there at the end — but Jesus, the little slideshow that plays while he talks about Star Wars‘ special effects is both brutal and hilarious. I eagerly, eagerly await Carrie Fisher’s response, although I’m willing to bet it’s only going to get crueler from here. Much thanks to Chris B. for the tip.
