Carrie Fisher did more than defend her friend, screenwriter Heather Robinson Ross, who said she told the late actress that she’d been sexually assaulted by a Hollywood producer in 2000.

Fisher got revenge,  and issued a warning to the unnamed Sony executive. Ross detailed the interaction when she called in to Arizona radio station KMXZ to recount the story last week.

First, what happened to Ross?

Ross was sexually assaulted in a car by the unnamed producer, The Mary Sue reported.

After she escaped from the car, Ross said told her mother and some friends about the incident. Fisher was among those whom she’d told.

What was Fisher’s response to the executive’s misconduct?

About two weeks later, she [Fisher] sent me a message online and she said, ‘I just saw (blank) at Sony Studios. I knew he would probably be there, so I went to his office and personally delivered a Tiffany box wrapped with a white bow,’” Ross told the morning show hosts. “I asked her what was inside and she said, ‘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 (clears throat) something of yours in a much smaller box!’”
