Matt Walsh Goes Viral Over New Disney Leak – Watch
Right-wing commentator Matt Walsh went viral this week after Disney admitted that the “woke” Snow White remake images that were circulating online were real.
The images, which were first published by the Daily Mail, showed a diverse cast of characters, including a black Snow White, a dwarf with dwarfism, and a female dwarf.
Walsh, who is known for his conservative views, was one of the first to call out Disney for the changes to the classic story. He tweeted the images and wrote, “This is what happens when you let wokeness infect your company. You destroy your own IP.”
Walsh tweeted on Sunday to his 2.3 million followers a headline from A.V. Club, which read, “Disney now says those ‘Snow White’ photos are simply ‘not official.’” And an update posted in the report read, “After initially telling The Daily Beast that the ‘Snow White’ set photos were fake, a spokesperson now says that the photos are in fact from the production, but are not official photos. We regret the error (and, in our mind, they still look pretty fake). The following story has been updated to reflect this fact.’”
“This is pretty hilarious,” Walsh tweeted. “Photos from Disney’s woke ‘Snow White’ remake leaked. They were mocked so heavily that Disney panicked and claimed the pictures were fake. A day later they had to admit that the photos are real just ‘not official.’”
Walsh’s tweet quickly went viral, and he was soon joined by other right-wing commentators who criticized Disney for the changes.
Walsh’s tweet echoed similar comments from conservative commentators.
“Welcome to some of the first images from Disney’s live action remake of Snow White and her DEI Dwarfs,” Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk tweeted. “Snow White is played by a Hispanic actress and there’s only one dwarf and 6 full gown adults.”
