Disney Change Up Has EVERYONE Upset
As Disney prepares to unveil a streaming service of its very own, rumors of changes to classics have many crying foul.
Disney+ draws ever closer to going live as a $7-per-month service that features Disney’s vast and iconic entertainment. Most of them anyway.
The media giant is coming under fire for what many claim is a “whitewashing” of its more controversial offerings.
For example, Song of the South will not be available on the service as it has mostly been banished for it’s depiction of African-Americans slaving on plantations for white masters. Likewise the classic Dumbo, will have scenes dominated by the racially insensitive crows (one of which is named Jim Crow) removed.
The move has people across the board upset, with civil rights activists claiming that trying to erase a racist past removes the opportunity to learn from it while others would simply prefer not to have the classics altered.
