Disney considers it's own content racist and blocks kids from viewing
Disney+ blocks under-sevens from watching 'racist' Peter Pan, Dumbo and The Aristocats for breaching 'content advisories'

quote:

Bosses at Disney have blocked anyone under the age of seven from watching the 1953 animated classic on its streaming service over concerns that it portrays racial stereotypes, The Mail on Sunday can reveal.

Three other long-standing family favourites – The Aristocats, Swiss Family Robinson and Dumbo – have also been removed from children’s accounts for breaching ‘content advisories’ that were recently put in place.


quote:

It is understood the main reason behind Peter Pan being blocked is because it features a Native American tribe whose members are referred to as ‘redskins’.

Meanwhile, the 1970 movie The Aristocats has a Siamese cat character called Shun Gon, whose slanted eyes and prominent teeth have been described as a caricature of East Asian people.

Swiss Family Robinson, which was made in 1960, has been criticised for its ‘yellow face’ and ‘brown face’ pirates.

Dumbo, the 1941 cartoon about a lovable flying elephant, has been accused of ridiculing enslaved African-Americans on Southern plantations. At one point during a musical interlude, faceless black workers toil away to offensive lyrics such as, ‘When we get our pay, we throw our money all away’.



quote:

While the films remain available on adult accounts, they come with a disclaimer that says: ‘This programme includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now.

Shouldn't they take down Lady and the Tramp because of the siamese cats?

Hope y'all have VHS versions cause they're going to cancel and/or censor these soon for everyone.

Yep, those damn movies are the reason that Baton Rouge has had the most homicides in the month of January in history.

Couldn’t find jungle book the other day when my 4yr old wanted to watch it. Makes sense now.

I figured it was the song "What makes the redman, red?"

Also, how do they know a 7 year old is watching it? I didn't realize people made accounts for kids that young

Then don't watch it.

I choose not to watch BET but don't feel it needs to be cancelled.

A lot of people are retarded liberals who also need to understand the time period in which they were made.

Just glad banning these and other movies / books will solve all of our racial issues.
