Piers Morgan again criticized the culture of cancellation and the “wake-up call” on social media.
The former “Good Morning Britain” presenter wrote a lengthy essay for the Daily Mail on Wednesday, denouncing criticism of Snow White’s revamped ride to Disneyland in California.
Recently, two reporters explained how they found Snow White’s enchanted wish is problematic because at the end of the ride, the prince kisses Snow White while she sleeps.
They wondered why a non-consensual kiss was included in the attraction of children. “Haven’t we already agreed that consent in early Disney films is a major issue? What to teach children that kissing, when it has not been established whether both parties are willing to engage, is not OK? It’s hard to see why 2021 Disneyland would choose to add a scene with such old-fashioned ideas of what a man is allowed to do to a woman, ”they wrote in SF Gate.

Morgan called their complaint a “virtue signaling charge” in his rant.
“They find all of this incredibly offensive and believe the prince is a malicious sexual deviant because he did not seek Snow White’s consent – something that may not have struck his mind given that he thought she was dead, “he continued.
Morgan pointed out that the prince was “tenderly kissing his loving farewell,” a gesture many mourners do in real life and in doing so saved her life and then “they got married and lived. Happy forever”.
The commentator also said the whole story was a made-up fairy tale and said: “I am with the chivalrous prince and I will not let the wokies kill Snow White.”

Reviews on the ride have also divided people on social media.
“Did you all think they would rewrite the scary story??? “asked an online user.
“In defense of Snow White, the prince did NOT think he was kissing a sleeping woman without her consent … he thought he was kissing the corpse of someone who had been dead for a year,” mentionned another.
“Parents should be able to teach their children about consent as well as the difference between real life and fairy tales”, someone else wrote.
“LEAVE ME ALONE! STOP TAKING the classics it made us all wish a happy ending, dreams and the best possibilities !!!!! », Reasoned a fan.

“The Snow White attraction has such a rich history,” Kim Irvine, Creative Director of Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney Imagineering, said in a statement. “We wanted to take into account the beautiful scenic work that has always existed and tell the story in a special way. We believe that guests will enjoy this sweet story in an amazing experience.”
