Cinnabon Posts Horribly Insensitive Tweet About Carrie Fisher

On Tuesday morning, legendary Star Wars actress Carrie Fisher passed away. Only hours after the tragic news was released, baked goods store, Cinnabon, shared an outrageously insensitive tweet about her death.

Cinnabon tweeted: "RIP Carrie Fisher, you'll always have the best buns in the galaxy." The company shared the tweet with a photo of a cinnamon roll that was supposed to look like Fisher's iconic hairdo as Princess Leia from Star Wars.

As you might imagine, the tweet resulted in an overwhelming amount of negative backlash. Cinnabon has since deleted the post from social media, but many Twitter users were quick to take a screenshot of the shocking post.

While Cinnabon may have completely failed to pay homage to the late actress in a respectable manner, there were a slew of celebrities and some of Fisher's former co-stars that shared heartfelt tributes on social media. Fisher's long-time friends and colleagues including Harrison Ford and Star Wars creator George Lucas spoke out about her death.

Ford remembered Fisher's sparkling personality, and offered his condolences to her family.

“Carrie was one-of-a-kind…brilliant, original. Funny and emotionally fearless,” Ford said in a statement given to TheWrap. “She lived her life, bravely…My thoughts are with her daughter Billie, her Mother Debbie, her brother Todd, and her many friends. We will all miss her.”

George Lucas also released a statement about Fisher's death. He praised Fisher's acting ability, and how she brought to life the character he created.

"In Star Wars she was our great and powerful princess - feisty, wise and full of hope in a role that was more difficult than most people might think," Lucas said in his statement.

Fisher portrayed Princess Leia in the original Star Wars trilogy and went on to reprise her role as Leia, now a General of the Resistance, in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Her final performance as Leia will be seen in Star Wars: Episode VIII in 2017.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Carrie Fisher's family and friends during this difficult time.
