Harrison Ford did not say Carrie Fisher “was a tranny,” despite a bizarre and ridiculous report from a website universally known for publishing fake news. Gossip Cop can exclusively set the record straight. The actor simply never made such a claim.

According to YourNewsWire, Ford recently told a “a Norwegian radio host” that his Star Wars co-star had a secret she took to the grave. “She had boy parts,” the actor is quoted as saying. “She was… What is the politically correct term these days? I don’t even know. I can’t keep up. Let’s just say she was a tranny.” The actor supposedly added, “There was enormous pressure from Lucasfilm and 20th Century Fox to keep her secret under wraps.”

However, the unreliable blog fails to mention when this so-called “radio interview” occurred or on what station for that matter. Still, the untrustworthy outlet then quotes the “radio host” as responding, “Generations of men around the world who grew up in the eighties will be devastated to find out that they ‘choked their chickens’ to a man in disguise as a princess in a metal bikini.” Ford allegedly shot back, “Come on, man. Let’s be adults here. Let’s not disrespect the dead.” Perhaps the site shouldn’t either, considering that none of this is true.

Gossip Cop confirmed with Ford’s rep that he never went on a radio show and outed Fisher as a “tranny.” All of the quotes attributed to the actor were completely fabricated. An search online of these outlandish statements do not yield any results from a legitimate radio interview.

Had the actor actually made such a shocking claim, YourNewsWire wouldn’t be the only outlet reporting about it. It seems this bogus story was concocted simply to capitalize on the one-year anniversary of Fisher’s death, as well as the recent release of Star Wars: The Last Jedi, which marks the actress’s final appearance in the franchise.
