Lucasfilm Ltd.
A number of characters in the Star Wars prequels were accused of portraying negative racist stereotypes, from the Trade Association aliens with the bad Asian accents to the aforementioned Jar-Jar Binks and his pidgin English. You don’t have to be a champion of political correctness to think some of these characters took things a little too far.

I think that you are off the mark here. While the prequels weren't as good as the original trilogy, they were still good movies.

Jar-Jar Binks & EWOKS, and all the puppet creatures who did not have leading roles!

BTW - Did anyone else take note that in addition to this aqusition of Lucas Arts / Star Wars,
Disney already owns the rights to the Muppets?

This could get bad, seriously bad.
