Conservative commentator Matt Walsh of the Daily Wire had a social media post go absolutely nuclear — that’s a step beyond being viral, at least in my own personal vernacular — after Disney came out and confessed that the leaked images from the new live-action remake of “Snow White” were indeed real after the company attempted to spin the narrative by denying their authenticity.
On Sunday, the tweet Walsh posted to his whopping 2.3 million followers, featured a headline from a publication called A.V. Club, which said, “Disney now says those ‘Snow White’ photos are simply ‘not official.’” An update that was included in the report went on to say, “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’s post read, according to the Daily Caller. “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.’”

“The Daily Beast called them ‘obviously fake,’” he continued. “Turns out that the obviously fake photos are completely real.”

Of course the left is trying to provide Disney with some assistance in the matter, because if everyone knows these images are true, then they will be clued in to the fact that the company, who originally had individuals with actual dwarfism in the roles, fired a minority group in their attempt to be woke, only to hire other minorities and then erase the existence of folks who are born with the condition by making the story’s dwarves regular size.
Just reading that back makes my head want to explode, but alas, the only thing that leftists actually seem capable of is taking common sense and tying it in knots. In the mind of the liberal, erasing people from existence in the name of “wokeness” is perfectly morally acceptable. In fact, it’s a practice that is encouraged. Like how they push for professional sports teams to drop any sort of reference to Native American culture. They are slowly, but surely blotting out Native Americans from the mainstream public eye. How long before they and their contributions are completely forgotten thanks to actions like this?
“Walsh slammed the first images leaked from the set for the Disney remake, saying it is the most obvious example of ‘cultural appropriation.’ One photo showed a Hispanic lead. Another featured the lead, followed by seven culturally diverse companions,” the Daily Wire said.
“Snow White is a 19th century German fairy tale,” the conservative commentator pointed out. “The name literally refers to the character’s skin color.”
Snow White is a 19th century German fairy tale. The name literally refers to the character’s skin color. This is what actual cultural appropriation looks like. Probably the most blatant case we’ve seen yet. https://t.co/erALE33kj0

“This is what actual cultural appropriation looks like,” he explained. “Probably the most blatant case we’ve seen yet.”
The post from Walsh included several photos that were originally obtained by the Daily Mail, which feature actress Rachel Zegler in the lead role as the famous Disney princess in the soon-to-be released film.
Walsh then shared a post published by the awesome Libs of TikTok account which said, “New diverse Snow White & the 7 Dwarfs movie only has 1 dwarf and Snow White is Hispanic. Disney says they want to ‘avoid reinforcing stereotypes.’”
Dwarfs are literally little people. How in the world is that reinforcing a stereotype? It’s scientific fact. What am I saying? These are the same kind of people who are convinced that despite a woman have XX chromosomes, if she just takes some testosterone and cuts her breasts off she can be a man, despite the fact that, no matter what she does cosmetically, it will never, ever change those chromosomes.
“Disney lost $900 million dollars (sic) on their last 8 releases,” the post went on to say. “Guess they’re not done losing $ yet…”

“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 posted on social media. “Snow White is played by a Hispanic actress and there’s only one dwarf and 6 full gown adults.”
