Disney Removes All Alligator References From Their Theme Parks
The folks at Disney are trying to clean up their image a bit in the wake of the alligator attack that left a 2-year-old boy dead, according to the NYPost.
The family-friendly money machine is removing all images of alligators from their parks including cartoons, shows and displays.
-Louis, the trumpet-playing gator from “The Princess and the Frog,” is no longer part of the Friendship Faire Castle show.
-The Tic Toc Croc, who chases bad guy Captain Hook in “Peter Pan,” has been yanked from the Festival of Fantasy Parade at Magic Kingdom.
-And the Jungle Cruise boat ride no longer includes a corny one-liner from the captain telling parents to “watch your children, or the crocodiles will,” according to the Hollywood Reporter.
Guess they figure parents won’t empty out their life savings to bring their kids to a place where they might die at the hands (and teeth) of a prehistoric-lookin’ beast.
Damage control like a muhfugga, shawty. Smh.
