It was already anticipated that the premiere of 'Lightyear' in theaters was not going to be without controversy and the first hours at the box office have only confirmed it. And all for a kiss.
More than a dozen Muslim countries banned the latest Pixar film for a kiss between two women in a scene that was already the subject of controversy in the United States, where it was even withdrawn from the film, before Pixar and Disney backed down. under pressure from employees who claimed their commitments to the rights of the LGBT population.
Now, the networks have turned in the way that most characterizes them, with memes and irony, not understanding the controversy considering that Disney, over the years, has introduced countless kisses -heterosexual, yes- and multiple scenes or plots of another nature showing behavior that is not suitable for children: more than one nightmare the youngest have had seeing how Snow White's stepmother asked them to kill the girl and put her heart in a box, or with the death of one of the parents, since if something abounds in Disney fictions, it is the deaths of fathers or mothers: Bambi, The Lion King, Finding Nemo, Tarzan...
Disney has also shown a drunk Dumbo, a smoking Pinocchio or has subjected Quasimodo to public ridicule in the middle of a square.
The connoisseurs of these scenes have remembered this type of images that children have witnessed for years thanks to children's films and have treated this controversy with humor and irony.
The reactions to this children's film have reached the news, which have described as "retrograde" the complaints of those countries that have decided to veto fiction, something that network users have applauded.
