- "My son was an effete southern homosexual, and I loved him. I love my dead gay son!"
- ―Mama the Hutt
Ziro the Hutt, technically Ziro Desilijic Tiure, spawn of Mama the Hutt, was the bizarre purple Hutt with crayon scribbles drawn all over him, who was introduced in The Clone Wars as a rival to Jar Jar Binks as the most offensive stereotype in canon. The poncing, mint-julep-drinking New Orleans... I mean Nal Hutta dandy was in no way based on Truman Capote. Truman Capote was a lot cooler; remember, he had that one cameo in Murder by Death. Cad Bane rescued Ziro from jail once... on the condition that he remain silent about any of his jail-time exploits; Bane didn't want to know.
The galaxy was stunned when it was revealed that Ziro had an ongoing affair with the ravishing and incontrovertibly female Sy Snootles... well, at first the galaxy burst into laughter, then went through a period of goggle-eyed disbelief, and then the galaxy was stunned. Then the galaxy pictured Sy Snootles and Ziro having sex and vomited profusely for weeks. Hutt gay bars immediately stopped calling happy hour "Ziro hour" when they found out. Unfortunately, Ziro's cruel treatment of Sy came back to haunt him; he was murdered by the selfsame crazy ex-girlfriend. After that, Jabba the Hutt pretended Ziro never existed. Then again, Jabba pretended Rotta never existed, too. You know what, maybe it's better we all pretended Ziro never existed.
