Disney has gone PC Stupid: Disney World is removing alligator and crocodile characters from shows and rides

What does a theme park character of an alligator have to do with the tragedy of a little boy being killed by a real alligator at Walt Disney World? 
Absolutely nothing!  There is no connection at all.  Only a warped mindset would try and equate the two.  I don’t think Disney realizes the floodgates it has opened upon itself.     

Providence Journal reports in the wake of a tragic alligator attack at a Disney World hotel that left a 2-year-old boy dead, Disney World has begun to make changes — even to decade-old attractions. 

Within days after 2-year-old Lane Graves was snatched by an alligator near the Seven Seas Lagoon at the Grand Floridian Resort & Spa on June 14, Disney World staff was installing temporary barriers and new signs warning about the alligators.
And now, references and appearances to the predators in the parks have begun to disappear. 

“We continue to evaluate processes and procedures for our entire property, and, as part of this, we are reinforcing training with our cast for reporting sightings and interactions with wildlife and are expanding our communication to guests on this topic,” Walt Disney World Resort Vice President Jacquee Wahler said in a statement last week. 

Louis, the trumpet-playing alligator from the 2009 film “The Princess and the Frog,” was supposed to be a part of the Friendship Faire castle show at Magic Kingdom, but got pulled just days before the show premiered on June 23, according to a Disney employee, who asked to remain anonymous because of job security. The alligator was supposed to play trumpet during the show. 

The Tic Toc Croc from “Peter Pan,” known for hunting villain Captain Hook, was also removed from the Festival of Fantasy parade at Magic Kingdom, park guests reported.

Well, in that case they need to remove Mickey Mouse.  After all he’s a rodent and I don’t think I know anyone who likes to have mice in their homes.  They’re offensive!  They should remove Bill Clinton from The Hall of Presidents because he’s a sexual harasser and rapist.  A lot of women find that sort of thing offensive.  The possibilities are endless and Disney may come to regret their decision.
