New York Pizzeria Giving Free Pizza To Customers Dressed As Princess Leia

Since Carrie Fisher’s untimely death, many have paid tribute to the iconic Star Wars actress.

Champion Pizza in Manhattan, New York is paying tribute by giving out free pizza to customers who dine in dressed as the leader of the Rebel Alliance, and any other Star Wars character, really.

While anyone who walks in like Chewbacca, or Han Solo can get a free slice, the real perk comes from dressing like Leia herself, as those customers can receive an entire pie, according to ABC News.

The promotion will run through Friday night, and the shop is expected to give out more than 10,000 slices to hungry mourners over the next couple days, according to Pix11.

Hopefully this promotion is received better than Cinnabon’s tribute Tuesday, which left some fans outraged, calling the bun bakers insensitive, leading to the post’s removal.

In this case, customers are getting free stuff, so it’s hard to hate on that. Plus, it’s an excuse to dust off the old Star Wars costumes.

Cinnabon Paid Tribute To Carrie Fisher And Pissed Off The Internet

Princess Leia’s hair buns are iconic and have often been compared to cinnamon rolls. It’s an old, tired joke, but Cinnabon tried to bring it back to relevance after the princess herself, Carrie Fisher, tragically died Tuesday.

In their own version of a Twitter tribute, Cinnabon posted an artistic cinnamon portrait of Princess Leia, with a Cinnabon bun, and a caption reading, “RIP Carrie Fisher, you’ll always have the best buns in the galaxy.”

Not exactly the most inflammatory thing they could have done, but fans of the actress found it to be insensitive, and what happened next can be perfectly explained by this scene in Friends:

Yeah, people immediately attacked the tweet, not appreciating Cinnabon’s attempt at showing Fisher love.

After the backlash, Cinnabon quickly deleted the tweet and apologized for it. Then, because you can never please everyone, Cinnabon got attacked for deleting it and giving in to the negative response.

The moral of the story: Everyone’s a hater, and 2016 is still the worst.
