Default Disney to Overhaul Splash Mountain Ride Amid Outcry

"The Walt Disney Co. announced on Thursday that the classic ride Splash Mountain would be retooled at its parks amid outcry over its ties to the controversial 1946 film Song of the South.

Splash Mountain first opened at Disneyland in 1989 and the ride was subsequently added to Walt Disney World and other parks around the globe.

However, amid the ongoing worldwide anti-racism protests in the wake of the May 25 killing of George Floyd, Splash Mountain found itself in the middle of the debate about what is acceptable.

The rides will be redesigned to depict scenes from The Princess and the Frog, the celebrated 2009 animated film featuring an African American female protagonist. In its Thursday announcement, Disney said it has been planning on retooling the ride since last year."
Political correctness is oppression disguised as good manners.

Post more fucking drama

Who is this 'outcry' coming from, who is 'debating' about a fucking children's ride at Disney?

Why is this even news?
