George Lucas Apologizes for ‘White Slavers’ Remark About Disney

The Wrap: The “Star Wars” creator found himself in hot water following an interview with Charlie Rose
“Star Wars” creator George Lucas has issued a statement in the wake of controversy after he compared Disney to “white slavers” in a recent interview with Charlie Rose.
“I want to clarify my interview on the Charlie Rose Show. It was for the Kennedy Center Honors and conducted prior to the premiere of the film. I misspoke and used a very inappropriate analogy and for that I apologize.

The story is too old to be commented.

Yea, I would have been surprised if he didn't recant after sometime, given how much press this got.

It was a cringy analogy to use, but it seems like that kind of feeling is quietly understood--and agreed upon--by all creative minds caught in the current quagmire of today's movie industry.

Unfortunate for this to blow up in his face.
