Lilly Singh hilariously took aim at Disney+ disclaimers.
On Thursday night’s edition of Global‘s “A Little Late with Lilly Singh”, the late night host mocked the new streaming service’s politically correct disclaimers for very un-PC moments in some beloved Disney classics.
As The Hollywood Reporter notes, Disney+ subscribers are being met with disclaimers in the synopsis section for several iconic animated Disney films, ranging from 1941’s “Dumbo” to 1967’s “The Jungle Book”, reading: “This program is presented as originally created. It may contain outdated cultural depictions.”
Quipped Singh: “Outdated. Because we all know racism is dead in 2019, right? I mean, just check my YouTube comments.”
She then launched into a hilarious segment about “Even More Disney Warnings” that should have been included in some of its other movies.
“First up, we need a warning for ‘Sleeping Beauty’,” she said before reading the disclaimer. “Warning: I can’t believe I have to tell you this, but kissing a passed out woman is illegal and terrible.”
Then there was this warning for “The Lion King”: “Warning: This movie depicts gay uncles as backstabbing murderers.”
Other disclaimers included “Toy Story 2”, which “has made more dads cry in front of their kids than divorce lawyers,” and “The Princess and the Frog,” with viewers warned: “Do not adjust colour on your screen. Princess is actually black.”
Meanwhile, a warning for “Finding Nemo” advised viewers to not “get too attached to the sea turtles” because “they all end up choking on plastic straws.”
Disney-owned Marvel did not come away unscathed, with the following disclaimer for 2011’s “Thor”: “Warning: This ‘Thor’ is the boring one,” she said. “You’re looking for ‘Thor: Ragnarok’.”
