‘Mickey Mouse goes woke!’ Disney brutally mocked for ditching ‘boys and girls’ greeting

Disneyland resorts across the world have started to reopen their doors to the public again after Covid restrictions forced the theme parks to shut their doors. Ahead of Orlando theme park’s first ‘Happily Ever After’ fireworks display since it reopened, Disney released a preview in anticipation of the event. However, it appears officials have altered the familiar introduction of “ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls” in a bid to be more inclusive.

Instead of the usual announcement alerting customers to the fireworks display, Disney have replaced the greeting with: “Good evening, friends.”

The updated announcement will be used throughout all of Disney’s 12 parks and will be heard in more than just the fireworks displays, a spokesperson from Toyko Disneyland told Deadline.

They added that the change was to make sure people of all sexual and gender identities felt “comfortable in the park”.

But the new greeting has been heavily mocked and criticised on social media, with many suggesting the change was completely unnnecessary and branded it as “woke”.

One person simply wrote: “Mickey Mouse woke!”, while another branded it as “utter garbage”.

A third said: What a bunch of BS. Disneyland is for the boys as the girls.

“Enough of this woke crap. Stupid asses!!”

Another person fumed: “I think what Mr Walt Disney came up with for HIS Parks…. Should not change.

“His Parks have made children , teenagers, adults happy since 1955.

Another person said: “Oh, for crying out loud! Really?”

But not everyone was angered by the move, with swathes of people praising the company for making their parks more inclusive.

One person enthused: “REALLY proud of you for the inclusive greeting at your parks. Bravo! Kindness MATTERS.”

Another wrote: “‘I love “Dreamers of all ages” because it really makes that super snuggly and more magical. It’s so heartwarming.”

It is not the first time Disney has made efforts to make its parks and films more inclusive.

It revamped some of its rides, including Splash Mountain and Jungle Cruises, after they were criticised for promoting racial and cultural stereotypes.

The brand also added warning to several of its older films on its streaming platform Disney+, such as Peter Pan, Dumbo and The Muppets.

Ex-Brazil football star Robinho’s 9-year prison term confirmed after ‘brutally humiliating’ gang rape victim & ‘defrauding cops’

Ex-Brazil hotshot Robinho’s nine-year prison sentence for his part in a gang rape while he was at AC Milan in 2015 has been upheld in court, where judges have said that the striker showed contempt for the victim and investigators.

The 37-year-old striker was found to have “brutally humiliated” and “belittled” an Albanian woman as part of an incident that began at a nightclub in Milan on her 23rd birthday in 2013.

Confirming the sentence, the Milan Court of Appeal rejected Robinho’s attempt to overturn the ruling while revealing that he had also tried to “defraud the investigations by offering the investigators false and previously agreed facts.”

In his evidence, Robinho had claimed that his sexual activities with the woman were “consensual”, although intercepted calls between the former Real Madrid forward and his friends seemed to show him saying that the victim was “completely drunk” in an exchange that he said had been mistranslated.

In a more far-flung existence than his time in the Premier League and as a winner of the Italian Serie A and Spanish Liga, Robinho ended his career with spells in China, Turkey and his homeland after leaving Milan in 2015.

The veteran reportedly signed for Santos for around $ 70 a week last year, failing to make a single official appearance while his lawyers continued to protest his innocence over the charges in Italy.

“A girl approached me, we started to have contact with her consent and mine too… then I went home,” he told UOL, admitting that he regretted cheating on his wife, Vivian, with whom he has two children.

“When she approached me, she wasn’t drunk because she remembers my name, she remembers who I am. The person who drinks doesn’t remember anything. She remembers.”

An international warrant could be sent to Brazil, which does not extradite citizens, for Robinho’s arrest, according to AS.

He is said to have 45 days in which to make a third and final appeal to the highest court of Italian justice.
