Liberals ruin everything. Disney executives say the iconic characters Tinker Bell and Captain Hook of the classic 1953 animated film Peter Pan are “problematic.” As a result, Disney has placed a disclaimer on the Disney+ streaming service to flag this issue for viewers.
Tinker Bell and Captain Hook are reportedly seen as “perpetuating negative stereotypes,” according to the company. Disney says the tiny fictional fairy Tinker Bell is problematic because she is “body-conscious” and is jealous of the attention Peter Pan gives to Wendy.
Captain Hook, on the other hand, is problematic because the prosthetic hook he wears in place of his hand apparently shows prejudice against disabled people because of his villainous nature.
Disney created a team called “Stories Matter,” which is tasked with combing through Disney movies and flagging them for potential problematic characters.
The company continues to spiral as liberal lunacy takes control. The “woke” company recently admitted that they are “adding queerness” to children’s programming, according to a leaked video of executive producer Latoya Raveneau.
Disney Corporate President Karey Burke also announced plans to add “many, many, many LGBTQ characters” to its shows and movies. The company said 50% of its characters will either be minorities or LGBTQ by the end of the year.
Making matters even worse, Disney has stood in public opposition to Florida’s anti-grooming bill that prevents teachers in third grade and younger from instructing kids on sex and gender identity without parental involvement. This impacts kids who are about eight years old and younger. This indicates that Disney believes children should learn about sex and gender identity without parental involvement. The majority of Americans living in Florida disagree with Disney’s radical stance. The anti-grooming bill passed through Florida’s legislature and it was signed into law.
“Stories shape how we see ourselves and everyone around us. So as storytellers, we have the power and responsibility to not only uplift and inspire, but also consciously, purposefully and relentlessly champion the spectrum of voices and perspectives in our world,” Disney’s Stories Matter Team says on its website.
“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.”
“We can’t change the past, but we can acknowledge it, learn from it and move forward together to create a tomorrow that today can only dream of,” the Stories Matter Team says.

Other characters and movies targeted by Disney include Ursula of The Little Mermaid, Dumbo, and the Aristocats.
Disney says that Ursula’s flamboyant behavior is potentially homophobic as she comes across as “queer-coded”… The report says that Ursula’s dark complexion and light-purplish skin tone could be seen to critics as racist.
The team notes that a crow murder in Dumbo is a “homage to racist minstrel shows, where white performers with blackened faces and tattered clothing imitated and ridiculed enslaved Africans on Southern plantations.”
In Aristocats, a cat with slanted eyes and buck teeth is described by the team as “a racist caricature of East Asian peoples,” according to the report.
The following advisory will appear on content flagged by Disney, which will appear before the film is played:
“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together,” the advisory reads. “Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe.”
