Admittedly I haven’t watched any Muppet Show or movies since the 80s.
What race did they target? Where’s the proof?
Kermit the Frog singing “It’s not easy being green?”. Is that some sort of an insult against those self identifying as green?
How about the Swedish Chef? Was he a stereotype of men with names like Gustav, or implying Swedes can’t cook?
How about Animal the Drummer? Was there some stereotype of long haired white male drummers during the 70s there? Maybe, there was a group back then called (Eric Burdon and) The Animals.
Maybe, as in the video, singing Siamese cats are the stereotypical depictions by racists. Seriously, this is getting ridiculous!
It feels as if the U S has become one large insane asylum. And those leading the inmates are in the least power to talk as they have publicly thanked the Chinese Communist Party, which is more about persecution of religious & ideological minorities than racial.
I think we need to start pumping Clozaril (strong antipsychotic medicine used in treatment of schizophrenia) into the water supply to stop these delusions & the destruction they cause.
There can be any number of distressing themes in such films and tv. The last part of that phrase gives potential viewers the warning to allow them the options to watch, or disengage.
Disney has specifically named Muppets racists. What race of humanity have they disparaged?
I’ve insulted mental patients by comparing Disney to lunatics. Most men & women facing everything from depression to schizophrenia would probably not intentionally harm others. Disney, in outing muppets as racist, all the while supporting the CCP, is truly evil.
“Like it or not that flag is a symbol of racism to some people in the country.”
Singing in front of it wasn’t a wise move on JC’s part. But, as a man struggling to get back in mysic coming off drugs, he started performing in prisons, and eventually developed a rapport with inmates.
Somehow I’m not seeing all of these men being white. The man had his problems in life, but I’m not seeing him as racist.
Perhaps if a need to put a disclaimer on something is so strong those particular shows shouldn’t be aired.
This isn’t an either-or proposition. There is a variety of options to deal with this sort of thing, and Disney has chosen a reasonable one.
Why do you guys always take the bait and go to Defcon one on these sorts of silly issues? For a fellow who’s presumably moderating his own emotions, you sure seem anxious jump on every single one of these whenever they come by.
For that matter, if the disclaimer bothers you, don’t watch the show!
