Taking to Twitter, those watching at home shared their thoughts on the row, with one writing: “I bet the original story of Snow White was much darker and what Disney did was probably made it more child friendly. This whole thing is ridiculous really.”
Another posted: “Why are we trying to remove the beauty of fairytales? This shouldn’t get air time! What’s next, unpicking the story of Big?”
A third commented: “If this is the level of debate at a time when we have a worldwide crisis no wonder Boris Johnson and others don’t want to be part of this programme.”
“It’s crazy – Disney fairy tales are part of history and we can’t change history – look at some of the classics like Jayne eyre – it’s a story and lots of stories or programmes don’t represent how life is now,” a fourth shared.
