The actress, who posed for a suggestive photo using character from Star Wars, could be in trouble.

You have to take the highs with the lows, it appears - especially if you are Amy Schumer. Coming off of a huge success with her hit movie Trainwreck and a long list of nominations for Emmy awards, Amy Schumer is facing maybe just a little bit of kickback from her popularity.

According to US Magazine, the official Twitter account of the Star Wars film franchise, which is owned by Lucasfilm and Disney - including the use of images and characters in the likeness of any character created for the movies or books, they aren't happy.

Just last week, the comedienne posed in a sexually-charged photo spread for GQ magazine where she was in bed with several characters and performed sexual acts on a lightsaber. On the cover, Schumer is pictured with C-3PO, and is shown sucking the Star Wars droid's finger while wearing a Princess Leia-inspired getup.

The official Twitter account responded to a comment (which is now gone) saying: "I can't believe @Disney signed off on the use of @starwars characters/props in the fashion depicted in @GQMagazine," the Star Wars account wrote, "Lucasfilm & Disney did not authorize, participate in or condone the inappropriate use of our characters in this manner."



The representatives for the companies then said in a statement that they found the images to be "distasteful" and in bad judgement. 

The stars of the movie, however, have a different opinion! Mark Hamill, who played the lead character in the movies said: "Got excited when I saw @amyschumer @GQMagazine pics & thought she was just cast in Ep 8! We should be so lucky."

Schumer hasn't commented yet, but it is clear that she probably won't be starring in any Disney movies anytime soon.
