Every Disney princess is referred to in various merchandise be it bags, toys, posters, and whatnot. In addition to that, they instantly become must-have so that we can own them and relate with them. Since long this was an issue for girls of color to relate any Disney princess with them. The main reason behind it all is that each Disney princess seemed to have origins from the white background.

Rotten Tomatoes has issued a statement in wake of an anti-Disney fringe group threatening to use the site as a platform for review bombing Black Panther later this month. This isn’t the first time the group, “Down With Disney’s Treatment of Franchises and its Fanboys,” has attempted to review bomb a movie. Created by an anonymous person who aligns themselves with the alt-right, a radical movement that propagates racist, misogynistic, xenophobic and various other hateful ideologies, the group campaigned against Star Wars: The Last Jedi in December for the film’s inclusion of female characters and “men being portrayed as idiots,” according to Huffington Post. Rotten Tomatoes told The Wrap that while the company respects “fans’ diverse opinions” on the movies they’re watching, it will not condone hate speech on the platform.
