A student has slammed classic Disney films for being 'horrendously outdated and offensive', claiming that the Jungle Book character King Louie is racist and that many of the animations have 'not aged well'.

Lauren Robertson re-watched 11 Disney favourites - accusing most of them of 'portraying racist and exaggerated stereotypes'.

The student, who studies languages at Aberdeen University, branded films such as Dumbo, The Lady and the Tramp and The Little Mermaid as 'dodgy'.

Why should that picture offend liberals?

It clearly shows Baloo the Bear in a grass skirt. He must be a Cross Dressing Transvestite.

Who is Lauren to tell others what they need to be offended by?

"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."

You are suggesting there is a stereotype here, no one else. Who is the racist?

Dear Aberdeen Student in the UK,

I permit you to rant and rave and scream and whine over today’s so-called ‘transgressions’, within the borders of the UK.
Ye shall not speak one bad syllable towards theseCLASSIC Disney films, here in America.

There’s an old movie from the 1980s called “Baby Boom” with Diane Keaton. She is a career woman who “inherits” a baby and is in the process of interviewing nannies, one of which is a Muslim. This is definitely not PC. It starts at about 59 seconds.

Yes, too much time on her hands. Little Miss Know Nothing from her Linked In. “My French studies I have focussed on translation skills, as well as oral, aural and written fluency.” Uh, hmm, major failure in not able to spell, proofread or run Spell Check and she can’t formulate a proper sentence.

Al Capp at his very best!

That was one I missed. I do remember Joanie Phoanie from the same era, though. What a great satire!

His personal life notwithstanding, Capp should be required reading for anyone who aspires to make a living in art, humor or advertising.

“Are we supposed to care what Lauren Robertson thinks about anything?”

Maybe we should. She and her contemporaries will be running the country in the not-too-distant future. We should be very worried.

I believe the little snowflake is spelling the word "focused" as our British cousins prescribe. Just like they add an unnecessary "u" to color for some reason. (Is there any other way to pronounce that word, perhaps rhyming with "sour?")

No wonder correct English is so difficult for email fraudsters in Nigeria.
