Even the Muppets are “aggressive” these days.
Anyone who streams “The Muppet Show” on Disney + will first see a disclaimer – a warning of “offensive content”.
Disney released five seasons of the iconic show for streaming on Friday, allowing viewers to enjoy watching Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzy Bear and their celebrity guests as part of its $ 6.99-month service Received
The Disclaimer shown before each episode warns viewers that the show has “stereotypes” and “mistreatment of people or cultures”.
“The program includes negative portrayals and / or misbehavior of people or cultures. These stereotypes were wrong then and are now incorrect, ”the disclaimer states.
“Instead of removing this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful effects, learn from it and spark conversations together to create a more inclusive future,” The disclaimer says.
“Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience worldwide,” the statement said.
This is precisely what Disney considers offensive in the show, but some characters depict Native American, Middle Eastern, and Asian people.
The warning will also appear on some iconic films, including “Aristotle”, “Dumbo,” “Peter Pan” and “Swiss Family Robinson.”
