Disney finally launched its streaming TV service, but not before labeling some of its old movies with trigger warnings to avoid upsetting modern snowflakes who may tune it to watch.
The Mouse House launched its new Disney + streaming TV service this week and is naturally offering a huge array of its old movies and cartoons for viewers to watch.
But apparently Disney felt that some of its decades-old content might upset today’s spineless Millennials who just can’t stomach things they disagree with. So, Disney labeled many of its older shows with warnings.
Disney is warning viewers that some of its oldest films have “outdated cultural depictions.”
Oh, the humanities.

Films like “Dumbo,” “The Aristocats,” “Lady and the Tramp” and “Jungle Book,” some of which were made nearly 80 years ago, offer a disclaimer saying,” “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.” Since its initial release in 1941, “Dumbo” has been criticized for including a version of vocal blackface, while “The Aristocats” and “Peter Pan” have been the subject of scrutiny for racist depictions of characters.
Before such movies play, another message appears that reads, “The cartoons you are about to see are products of their time. They may depict some of the ethnic and racial prejudices that were commonplace in American society. These depictions were wrong then and are wrong today. While these cartoons do not represent today’s society, they are being presented as they were originally created, because to do otherwise would be the same as claiming these prejudices never existed.”
Apparently young people today can’t figure out that social mores have changed over time.
Seriously. Is there anything worse than a snowflake millennial?
It’s all just another example of how intolerant and ignorant of history liberals are.
