The Devil Mouse is now practicing Zero History on its own intellectual property. It’s a bold move, Cotton.
Now Aladdin is racist. So much so that Disney+ added a warning label before the film starts.
“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 conversations to create a more inclusive future together.”
And here’s where it gets funny.
“Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe. To learn more about how stories have impacted society visit Disney.com/storiesmatter”
When did Disney become educational?
First off, when did Disney suddenly become a Civil Rights movement? We coulda sworn we went to Disneyland and waited in line for two hours to be entertained–not for an “education.”
But maybe that’s the issue that Disney and other major corporations can’t seem to understand. They’re suddenly switching lanes (without putting on their signal, I should add) and trying to educate when they should just be creating a fun environment. Disney+ wants to say they’re focused on inspirational themes while half the children in Disney films have dead parents.
It’s not a question of the converged corpocracy not understanding anything. Converged organizations simply have very different goals than outsiders who don’t understand the concept of corporate cancer grasp. A converged organization always sacrifices its ability to perform its primary objective, so it should come as no surprise that a converged entertainment company like the Devil Mouse is increasingly losing its ability to entertain anyone.
