Disney Has Double Standard

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

I’m puzzled by how the Disney Company operates. If you pick up the May issue of Vanity Fair off the newsstands, you will see this rather risqué picture of Hannah Montana, clutching a satin sheet to otherwise naked torso. A Disney spokeswoman told the New York Times that “a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.” But then I see a picture of a young girl who looks all of 12 years old, on billboards all over China, reclining in a matching bra – and – panties set adorned with Disney signature mouse-ear design. So is the Disney Company trying to have it one way in America and another way around the world? I think old Walt is turning in his grave over what happened to the company he formed.
