“The Good Place” and “Frozen” actress Kristen Bell sparked some debate and outrage in a new interview where she called out the fairy tale “Snow White” for its lack of concern for consent when it comes to the famous kiss.
Bell, who reads to her children Lincoln, 5, and Delta, 3, every night, told Parents Magazine that she always asks them if they find it odd that the prince kisses Snow White.
“Don’t you think that it’s weird that the prince kisses Snow White without her permission? Because you cannot kiss someone if they’re sleeping,” she said.
For those unfamiliar, “Snow White,” also known as “Sleeping Beauty,” is placed under a curse that can only be broken when her true love kisses her after an evil witch hands feeds her a poison apple. The story was made most famous by its 1938 film adaptation by Disney that features the kiss in question as the moment that saves her from her coma-like state.
This is Bell's personal opinion on the matter but it looks like people have had enough of the #MeToo movement being taken too far.
No. It’s a fairy tale for goodness sakes. Stop PCing and over thinking everything. It’s true loves kiss . Sometimes we need to leave the crazy reality of life and dream.— Truth be told (@Truthbe46567003) October 18, 2018
