Kid’s Series ‘The Muppet Show’ Dealing With Discriminating Content Issues

Disney Plus which is now the host streamer for ‘The Muppet Show’ has had to add disclaimers to 18 episodes of the popular kids series. The disclaimer 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 conversation to create a more inclusive future together.”

This incident has sparked Disney to not only review this show but all of its content. Disney putting out a statement saying, “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.” They continued saying, “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.”
