Outrage After Disney Debut’s Iconic Minnie Mouse’s New Woke Look

OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion

Desperate to change an American iconic cartoon figure to favor more “progressive” ideology, Disney showed off a new style for Minnie Mouse this week while changing her traditional red dress with white polka dots- to a pantsuit in the shade of a more ‘progressive’  blue.

The new progressive-anti-racist-feminist styling reminded some online posters to something that Democrat- and always hopeful presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, would wear.

‘Way to go, Disney, you turned Minnie Mouse into Hillary Clinton,’ one person tweeted about the big Disney news.

The changes in clothing style follow a pattern of Disney wokeness.

“In the past two years, Disney has implemented several progressive changes across its entire company, from adding racism warnings to several of its classic movies – including Peter Pan and The Jungle Book – to encouraging white staff members to ‘decolonize their bookshelves’ as part of anti-racism training.,” The Daily Mail reported on Friday while covering the costume change.

Fans were not impressed by designer Stell McCartney, daughter of singer Paul McCartney, and some even called the woke designer out for not actually pushing the right woke button:

 “Hey Disney, you should actually give gay/queer characters storylines and also maybe pay your employees a livable wage,” a woke poster wrote in reaction to Minnie’s news style.

The progressive designer has promised she will fashion a new branding to the company’s classic Snow White as well while displaying the new and improved progressive clothing line.

Fans complained saying that the changes were ‘woke” while they complained over the loss of tradition and “timeless classics.”

Conservative activist Candace Owens appeared on Jesse Watters’s new show on Fox and excoriated those who made the decision.

At almost 100 years old, Minnie Mouse was created in 1928 by Walt Disney as a girlfriend and partner to Mickey Mouse.  Mickey Mouse, created by Walt Disney, is the little guy who started the entire massive company.

McCartney notably created the new costume for Minnie in honor of Women’s History Month, which takes place in March in celebration of the Paris park’s 30th anniversary. Still, fans there are not celebrating along with the ex-Beatles daughter.

McCartney explained that she opted for a blue polka-dot blazer with matching pants – in an attempt to make her a ‘symbol of progress for a new generation,’ which is a purposeful attempt to ignore the instantly recognizable and long-standing image of Minnie Mouse herself – as Mickey’s girlfriend.

McCartney also replaced Minnie’s red bow with a blue one and swapped her beloved yellow pumps for a  more progressive pair of black shoes.

‘I wanted Minnie to wear her very first pantsuit at Disneyland Paris, so I have designed one of my iconic costumes – a blue tuxedo – using responsibly sourced fabrics,’  McCartney said in a statement.

‘This new take on her signature polka dots makes Minnie Mouse a symbol of progress for a new generation.’

‘I am delighted to be working with the one, the only, the iconic Minnie Mouse,’ McCartney wrote.

‘Minnie has always had a special place in my heart. We share the same values,” she said.

‘What I love about Minnie is the fact that she embodies happiness, self-expression, and authenticity and that she inspires people of all ages around the world. Plus, she has such great style.’
