You can't make this stuff up.
As Disney continues to become more and more woke, opposing legislation that would prevent Florida grade school kids from hearing about sex in class and also vowing to introduce more gay characters, now the organization is finding problems with some other characters: their own.
According to The New York Times, Disney has reportedly labeled a few of its beloved characters as "potentially problematic."
What characters are at risk? Birmingham, Alabama's ABC News affiliate reported, "Disney's version of Tinker Bell, based upon J. M. Barrie's 1904 play 'Peter Pan' and its 1911 novelization 'Peter and Wendy,' was flagged for concern because Tinker Bell is jealous of Peter Pan's attention toward Wendy, and because she is 'body-conscious.'"
"Captain Hook, who famously has a prosthetic hook where his hand would be, was reportedly flagged because he exposes Disney to accusations of prejudice against disabled individuals due to his villainous nature," the report added.
Remember, these are grown adults worried about this.
What other beloved Disney character might be under attack? Apparently, Ursula the Sea Witch from 1989's "The Little Mermaid."
That's right. "THE LITTLE MERMAID" is "potentially problematic."
Disney was reportedly concerned Ursula could come across as "queer-coded." What does this even mean? Ursula's flamboyant behavior could be considered homophobic.
We swear we're not making this up. And there's more!
The ABC News report notes, "Also, as Ursula is of dark complexion and of a darker, light-purplish skin tone, the villainess was also reportedly a potential target of critics who would see her as a possible racist depiction."
Disney has what it calls a "Stories Matter" team, executives of which told the NYT's, "As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures. Rather than removing this content, we see an opportunity to spark conversation and open dialogue on history that affects us all. We also want to acknowledge that some communities have been erased or forgotten altogether, and we're committed to giving voice to their stories as well."
Here's an idea: Maybe there is one community that needs erasing. The woke lunatics running things at Disney. At no time did any rational person ever think Tinker Bell, Captain Hook, Ursula, and so many other characters we grew up with were offensive to various minorities, and let's take this a step further - we bet few, if any, actual gay or disabled or types of minorities of Americans ever thought of such things until some politically-correct nitwits at Disney concocted it.
If the land of the Magic Kingdom is going to continue to become the Woke Kingdom, fewer and fewer people are going to want anything to do it.
In the end, Disney just might end up canceling themselves.
