Maybe you missed the story of Jeremiah Heaton, an American who travelled to Sudan and Egypt to put up a flag in an area of “no man’s land” and call it his in order to make his daughter a “princess.” Well, now Disney is making a movie about it called The Princess of North Sudan. And people are not pleased:
Unsurprisingly, Twitter has not taken too kindly to this upcoming movie about “literal white entitlement”, with many outraged that Disney’s first ‘African’ princess will be a white girl.
Then again, it wouldn’t be the first time Disney has screwed up.
