Everybody’s favorite cultural caricatures came out from beneath their rocks because they have nothing to contribute while we wait for the final chapter in the Trump era.
The same idiots who hate the French and ignorantly rebranded French(sic) Fries “Freedom Fries” now want to mock the contextualizing of cultural products now newly contextualized.
The usual suspects have dragged out some awkward false equivalencies because they’d prefer drawing attention from a recent failed coup and a disgraced ex-POTUS*.
It’s all Dan Quayle and Murphy Brown again where the GQP demonstrates not only a lack of imagination, but the same stupidity that compels them to send their money straight to the Trump superPAC. The US equivalent of the “three-line whip” is the GOP vote against certifying the election even after the insurrection on 1/6. Sounds more refined than a “gag order” protecting a leak, or in the case of Kevin McCarthy in 2016 saying Trump gets paid by Putin.
This announcement comes shortly after The Walt Disney Company launched its Stories Matter initiative. As part of this effort, the company drafted in a group of experts to advise and assess its content and ensure that it accurately represents global audiences. On the site, Disney has included examples of the disclaimers now included with select titles, along with an explanation of some of the negative depictions.
The disclaimer reads: “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 Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe.”
This updated content advisory notice started appearing in front of controversial movies and shorts in the Disney+ library towards the end of last year.www.ign.com/…

Hollywood is cutting the cartoon skunk Pepe LePew from “Space Jam 2” for being a sexual harasser, but they’re letting Gov. Andrew Cuomo keep the Emmy Award they gave him for Best Acting in the Fictional Role of a Competent Governor.

If a horny skunk offends you don’t watch the damn thing. The fact I even have to write the phrase “if a horny skunk offends you” shows what an actual cartoon country were becoming. pic.twitter.com/TIKR73777i
