Piers Morgan has hit out at the ‘pathetic woke brigade’ and demanded they ‘shut the f**k up’ after Disneyland’s Snow White ride was attacked over its iconic kiss from the Prince being ‘without consent’.
The former Good Morning Britain presenter was reacted to a report about the Anaheim, California theme park, which re-opened its doors for the first time since the pandemic began – but has already been targeted over its revamped Snow White ride.
According to critics of the theme park, the ‘Enchanted Wish’ ride – which replaced Snow White’s Scary Adventures – should have been ‘re-imagined’ with the ending of the ride showing the famous kiss from the Prince, dubbed ‘true love’s kiss’, not included.
SFGate reviewers hit out at the ‘kiss he gives to her without her consent, while she’s asleep, which cannot possibly be true love if only one person knows it’s happening’.
They added: ‘Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney movies is a major issue?’
Responding to an article on the critique, Piers was fuming, as he issued a scathing message on Twitter.
He wrote on Wednesday: ‘For the love of God…Can the woke brigade please just shut the f*ck up?
‘You’re pathetic & exhausting, and nobody in the real world agrees with you. Thanks.’
The journalist’s fans were divided on Piers’s rant, with some suggesting he was getting too worked up ‘over the opinion of two people writing an article for some regional blog’, while another backed up the reviewers and said their young son ‘thinks the kiss is a bit creepy’.
He had his backers, though, with one replying to his tweet: ‘OMG what the hell is happening to this world. Where’s the stop button, I want to get off!!’
Many others had accused the review for taking ‘cancel culture’ too far, as the SFGate critique added: ‘It’s hard to understand why the Disneyland of 2021 would choose to add a scene with such old fashioned ideas of what a man is allowed to do to a woman.
‘Why not re-imagine an ending in keeping with the spirit of the movie and Snow White’s place in the Disney canon, but that avoids this problem?’
However, the reviewers ended by insisting the ride was executed ‘beautifully’ – ‘as long as you’re watching it as a fairy tale, not a life lesson’.
