Disney Criticized For 'Unrealistic' Body Shape on Female Character | 22 Words

Disney has recently come under fire after pictures of the "unrealistic body shape" of one of their female characters went viral - though not everyone can see the problem.

Here's the full story...

Now, we all know that Disney is no stranger to controversy.

Over the years, the media giant has been known to be involved in several different scandals...

One of the main ones being its lack of diversity.

This one has probably lost them the most fans.

We have always been subjected to the same image...

Most Disney characters have always been white, no matter if they are male or female - it was only in 2009 that we got our first-ever black Disney princess, Tiana.

Since that foot in the door, we have slowly seen a more varied line-up...

Disney characters are now coming in all different colors and ethnicities and, though we're not completely there yet, it's good to see the difference.

Last year, we even got a black Ariel.

Halle Bailey took us on a journey into the deep blue as she became our modern-day Ariel.

Though the news didn't sit well with everyone...

It was a crucial step in the right direction.

And a year later, we were pleased to meet our first ever black prince.

Niles Fitch took on the role of Prince Tuma in Disney+'s series titled Secret Society.

While some people have claimed that Chadwick Boseman was, in fact, the first black prince...

Technically he is ruled under the Marvel label and, even though Disney now owns Marvel, both of the companies stand as separate entities. You can read more about this historic revelation at the end of this article.

Even though this revelation of a black prince has put a lot of people at ease...

That hasn't stopped people from finding something else to complain about... Cartoons.

While I can fully understand feeling irritated at the lack of diversity or unrealistic portrayals of actual human characters...

I'm finding it extremely difficult to see the point in complaining about a cartoon.

It all started when a Twitter account under the name "Glitch" re-posted pictures of a character from a lesser-known Disney film.

They were screenshots of Kate from the short film, Inner Workings with the caption: "In no world did they [Disney] need to do this."

The post gained a lot of attraction because people just couldn't come to terms with her proportions...

Even though she's meant to be built as a caricature.

These were just some of the more popular (and extra critical) comments out of the hundreds that were left under the thread.

However, others countered the comments about the character being too "unrealistic"...

Here's the incriminating character.

All in all, there are bigger things to worry about in the world than a skinny-waisted, dump-truck ass character from a short movie released in 2016. Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk.
