The Muppet Show: Disney adds content warning over ‘negative stereotype’

February 22 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 2/22/2021 11:23:42 AM IST

 Disney included a content warning for 18 episodes of the Muppet show. The disclaimer has been added to some episodes, warning viewers that the episode featured may include “negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.” Despite the controversial material some episodes contain, Disney decided to leave these episodes to “acknowledge the [offensive content’s] harmful impact, learn from it, and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”

Some episodes of The Muppet Show will display an unskippable content warning for 12 seconds.

This is not the first time Disney has issued content warnings before certain content on its service. Some older movies in Disney’s library also include the same content warning for racist or insensitive stereotypes, including 1941’s Dumbo and 1953’s Peter Pan. Those films have also been recently removed from Disney Plus “Kids” profiles for viewers aged seven or younger.
