'Snow White responsible for date rape?' Andrew Neil hits out at 'woke' This Morning guest


Disneyland has drawn criticism over its new Snow White ride which features a “problematic” true love’s kiss. The ride which ends with the prince kissing Snow White while she is asleep has drawn backlash as it is “without her consent”. Broadcaster Andrew Neil has hit back at these claims. Speaking on ITV’s This Morning, Mr Neil said: “As we talk the Chinese Navy is involved in a massive build up off the coast of Taiwan.

“It could invade there in the next three or four years, sparking a global crisis.

“Russian forces amassing on the border of Ukraine, there are still 800,000 new cases a day of Covid and the western elite is talking about this.”

Nicola Thorp added: “I’d like to say in the UK only 1.5 percent of rape cases actually get charged.

“It’s part of rape culture that we want to address and talk about.”

Mr Neil interjected: “This cartoon is responsible for date rape?”

Ms Thorp continued: “I didn’t say that but I think it’s important to talk about rape culture, Andrew.

“All of your points are valid, I think mine are too. They can both exist in this space.”

The kiss is a famous scene from the original 1937 Snow White film.

There will be no parades, and the nightly fireworks displays have been put on hold to prevent crowds from gathering closely together.

Jocelyn Bonilla, who was among more than 28,000 U.S. Disney theme park workers to be furloughed during the long closure, was delighted to be back.

“I am one of the ones that got let go, so it feels good to be back,” she said. “Seeing everyone back, seeing everything back to normal, it’s amazing.”

Tickets to Disneyland are sold out through mid-June, according to the park’s online reservation system, but there is more availability in the adjacent California Adventure.
