Peterson has previously spoken against “wokeness” and even encouraged boycotts of companies like Target and Bud Light for their LGBTQ+ marketing campaigns.

He also brought attention to a documentary titled “Unwoke Inc.” produced by right-wing media company PragerU and directed his criticism at Disney.

The Snow White Remake

Disney is now releasing a live-action remake of the 1937 classic “Snow White.” The original Snow White character was an archetype of a good-hearted princess who wants a handsome prince.

Rachel Zegler, who plays Snow White in the remake, shares that the new version of Snow White isn’t focused on finding true love but rather on her journey to become a strong leader. This change is explained by noting how dated the 1937 version feels, especially in terms of its portrayal of women’s roles.

A Cultural Shift

Gareth Roberts, the author of the article, laments the replacement of one stereotype (a damsel in distress) with another (an empowered female leader). He feels that placing such high expectations on young girls can be burdensome.

In a previous interview, Zegler mentions that the remake won’t focus on the romantic relationship between Snow White and Prince Charming as it was perceived as outdated and even “stalkery”.

Critique of Modern Media

The article criticizes the way mass media, and specifically Disney, has changed over time. It suggests that Disney’s attempts to cater to progressive ideologies and subcultures have led to a decline in the broader appeal of their content.

Many Users Agreed with Peterson

One person demanded they stop reusing old material. ‘Why not just write a new story with new characters? Why does an old story have to be remade while changing so much just to be ‘inclusive?’

Stop Promoting the Woke Movement

People want Disney to stop rewriting the classics to promote their agenda. “Rachel Zegler says the Prince was stalking Snow White, and it was weird. What it’s weird is that I didn’t notice it for 50 years. Do something new. Don’t rewrite old classic movies accordingly to your woke movement.”
