So, there’s this corny-looking movie about Walt Disney creating the Mary Poppins film called Saving Mr. Banks starring Tom Hanks as Disney coming out December 20th and I remember that there has been talk that Mr. Disney was racist among other not so nice things. I took to Google and found the video below featuring interviews with people who have worked with and for him sharing their stories, proving that he was a jerk and I also found this article that tries to debunk that he was an ass.
Of course he was a racist, sexist asshole. He was a White man living in a time when many if not most White men were racist, sexist assholes. Color me so not surprised. Disney, as a brand, has promoted many racist, sexist and asshole like themes over the years. We’ve all seen it and bought into it in one way or another. I guess you can say racism, sexism and assholism has brought us all together.
