Somehow and in some way, this person must have been deprived of something important in order to have a worldview such as theirs.

One university student binge watches old Disney Films and it makes international news? We live in a fascinating world.

The voice of King Louie was Louis Prima, an Italian American. So who's the racist Lauren?

I’m confused as to how this became “news”. The article just looks like some college kid watched some movies on her own and became offended. Maybe she dashed off some complaints on Facebook or Twitter, but they s seems like even shakier sourcing than the typical clickbaity “cut and paste a Reddit thread” articles.

Excellent point especially when Lauren Robertson is too ignorant to know the difference between an ape and a monkey. I cannot take her seriously when she lacks basic knowledge like that.

Addressing The Jungle Book, from 1967, Lauren, who is originally from Dunblane said: 'Remember King Louie the orangutan?

The student claimed that the Jungle Book character King Louie (pictured above) is racist.

'You probably didn't realise when you watched it age five with all your animal teddies lined up in front of the TV, but there is a hell of a lot of criticism about him being a racist caricature.

'He and the other monkeys are shown to be foolish and criminal, and they literally sing about wanting to be able to make the white man's fire.'

outdated

People who actually use that term should be flogged. Mercilessly.
