It’s Come to This… Disney+ Streaming Puts Offensive Warning on The Muppets… Seriously.

If this were a joke, like, “Soon they’ll put warning labels on the Muppets,” no one would laugh because it would sound so outrageous. And yet, that’s exactly what has happened.

Jim Henson’s classic series “The Muppet Show” began streaming on Disney+ on Friday, but now comes prefaced with an offensive content disclaimer.

The warning reads:

“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures.  These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now. Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversations to create a more inclusive future together.”

The new content warning appears on 18 episodes, including those guest-hosted by Steve Martin, Peter Sellers, Kenny Rogers, Johnny Cash, Debbie Harry and Marty Feldman.

Cash appeared singing in front of a Confederate flag and, in Disney’s view, with negative depictions of Native Americans, Middle Easterners and people from other cultures.

The Muppets aren’t alone.

Last year, disclaimer warnings were also added to Disney films like “Peter Pan,” “Aladdin,” “The Jungle Book,” “The Aristocats,” “Lady and the Tramp,” “Dumbo” and “Swiss Family Robinson” for similar depictions of stereotypes.

A statement on the Stories Matter site reads:

“As part of our ongoing commitment to diversity and inclusion, we are in the process of reviewing our library and adding advisories to content that includes negative depictions or mistreatment of people or cultures. Rather than removing this content, we see an opportunity to spark conversation and open dialogue on history that affects us all. We also want to acknowledge that some communities have been erased or forgotten altogether and we’re committed to giving voice to their stories as well.”

It’s amazing that any of us survived our childhood and manage to function as adults after being subjected to the horrors of “The Aristocats” and the Muppets.

    I have limited funds and no money available to contribute. However: Watch the “OAN – ABSOLUTE PROOF” (2 hour documentary) after reading the following:
    HOW CAN MITCH MCCONNELL, MITT ROMNEY, THE SUPREME COURT (and others) BE SO BLIND AND IGNORANT?
    IT IS “INTUITIVELY CLEAR TO EVEN THE MOST CASUAL OBSERVER” THAT THIS ELECTION WAS FRAUGHT WITH FRAUD TO OVERRIDE THE LEGITIMATE VOTES!!!!
    FURTHERMORE; THE SENATE AND HOUSE WERE DERELICT IN THEIR DUTY TO VERIFY ALL LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE COUNTED, AND ENSURE THAT ALL NON-LEGITIMATE VOTES WERE REJECTED!!!!
    I fully support President Donald J Trump, recognize he truly loves this country and stands firmly for what is right, for the Constitution and for We The People of The United States of America.
    There is a very huge silent majority who recognizes that We as well as He are under attack by the radical left. Democ’rats. (Which is what the Democrat Party needs to be renamed as that name accurately reflects their Attitude and Hate for all that is good for our nation.) Democ’rats should never be referred to as being the Democratic Party, because there isn’t anything in their platform or conduct that indicates they adhere to Democratic principles. Anyone who refers to them as being Democratic or being The Democratic Party is either ignorant or lacks even an ounce of intelligence.
    Just make sure as Republican members/candidates for the Senate and House you will fully support and stand with President Donald J Trump, truly love this country and stand firmly for what is right for the Constitution and We The People of The United States of America. If you do, I am confident the huge silent majority will elect/retain you to represent them. DO IT!

    Disney you are so done following the evil demons known as the democrats. Your ethics are disgusting. Walt will be rolling in his grave if he knew you took Disney in the rabbit hole with the demons. I will destroy everything I have that pertains to Disney. Disney no longer supports the American family values .

      Call it like it is
      The Democratic Socialist Party or as it really is the American Communist Party.
      How about we change the name of the country from the United States of America to the Union of Socialist States of America
      USSA for short.
      Any one familiar with the USSR
      Worked well for them didn’t it.
      Have a nation wide contest to come up with a new flag design.
      I say plain white is appropriate if we don’t stand up to these P.O.S.

    How stupid can you people be? You all need to STOP picking over every little thing just so you can start with this racist crap. Kids did not see racism in any of these movies. It’s the idiot grown ups that start this. Even with Elmer Fudd out hunting, it was called violence. Kids see violence in all these video games that they play. They show people getting their brains splattered and guts lying all around. Tell me this isn’t violence. It’s the parents that cause kids to be the way they are. Kids tell the parents what to do and get whatever they want. Explain to me how people like Biden, Harris, Pelosi and their cronies manage to function. What is their excuse? The democrats are as evil as it gets. Knock it off with this bulls**t. People are tired of being told what they can and can’t do or watch on tv or say. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!

    Obviously, many may have survived childhood but fail to function as adults. This is whiney, snively 5 year old stuff. It does not need a disclaimer, if you can’t handle it, don’t watch. I don’t watch the PC stuff but it does not come with disclaimers that it is PC induced bullshit.

    I have PTSD from these conservative programs, we were brainwashed as fragile, trusting children. There needs to be a reparation committee formed dealing with treatment for now adults who suffered under these terrible programs. The nightmares of Kermit abusing Ms. Piggy come back on dark nights. These shows have twisted my mind so badly I voted for Trump, they made me a conservative.
    I admit I need long term treatment to rid my life these subversions.
