In the wake of allegations that Harvey Weinstein was responsible for sexually harassing or assaulting more than two dozen women, a number of men and women both in- and outside of Hollywood have come forward to share their own experiences. Director Heather Ross, a longtime friend of Carrie Fisher, claimed the late actress once sent a cow tongue to an unnamed producer after Ross said he had groped her.

Ross on Arizona’s 94.9 Morning Mix last week recalled an incident in which she was assaulted by an “an Oscar-winning producer.” Fisher — who played the beloved heroine Princess Leia in the “Star Wars” franchise — learned of the assault and reportedly hand-delivered the box with the organ inside as an apparent form of retribution.

“I just saw [the producer] at Sony studios,” Ross recalled Fisher telling her. “I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany’s box wrapped with the white bow. It was a cow tongue from Jerry’s Famous Deli with a note that said, ‘If you ever touch my darling Heather or any other woman again, the next delivery will be something of yours in a much smaller box.’”

Ross reportedly confided in her mother and friends about the assault but did not go public with her allegations at the time. Like others who have come forward about experiencing sexual misconduct in Hollywood, Ross cited an unbalance in power as reason for staying silent.

Weinstein has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting women for some three decades, according to two independent exposés published this month. The allegations of those coming forward have rocked the entertainment industry and have illuminated widespread abuses of power in the industry. The former studio executive has since been fired from his company and expelled from the Motion Picture Academy.
