She had jokingly made fun of the movie's fans excitement for then-upcoming film 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens.' On the show, she said, 'I have never had any interest in watching space nerds poke each other with their little space nerd sticks, and I'm not going to start now.'
Her comments followed a series of death threats from the angry fans, to which Katherine responded by saying, 'You people are crazy. You 'Star Wars' people are crazy. Yesterday I tweeted something, and all I said was that I wasn't familiar with Star Wars because I've been too busy liking cool things and being attractive — people threatened my life. You're not really branding yourself in a way that makes me want to join your life-threatening club.'
Katherine was defensive of her original remarks and wrote a column on the National Review.
A lot of people are clearly a lot of upset. But guess what? I'm not apologizing. Why? Because the all-too-common knee-jerk reaction of apologizing for harmless jokes after overblown hysteria is ruining our culture. This political-correctness obsession threatens free speech, and I absolutely refuse to be a part of it.
She further added.
Bottom line: If you are telling me that I should die and/or apologize for making a joke about a movie you like, then you are too sensitive. You have the problem, not me. I'm sick of oversensitive mobs in our overly sensitive society bullying people into saying that they're sorry over jokes — even if the subject of the joke is something as serious as Star Wars. So, for that reason, I will not apologize.
