AN anti-LGBTQ group has called for Toy Story 4 to be boycotted because of its inclusion of a lesbian couple within their latest movie.
Christian Fundamentalist group ‘One Million Moms’ has slammed the latest Disney movie. The uproar is over the accusation that Disney is ‘pushing an agenda of normalisation’.
The anti-LGBTQ organisation has become outraged over screen time that amounts to a few seconds. The lesbian, bi-racial couple is seen in the background dropping off and picking up their son at Kindergarten.
The lesbian couple has no lines in the entire movie.
One Million Moms believe that Disney kept the scene under wraps on purpose so that they could expose as many people as possible.
A spokesperson for the Christian Fundamentalist group, Monica Cole, said: “It was a noticeably small scene with the sole purpose of attempting to normalise this lifestyle.
“Not to mention there was a brief comment made about not hiding in a closet also in the movie. Some children may not catch this reference, but it was extremely unnecessary as with the lesbian couple.”
It seems like Toy Story 4 has still been extremely popular. It took a gross of €105 million for its opening weekend in the US alone, and €210 million overseas.
