Gay Kissing Scene Added To Buzz Lightyear Movie In Response To Anti-grooming Law

17

Disney’s Pixar announced that it will include a same-sex kiss in the upcoming animated film Lightyear amid outcry from the gay community. 

The movie, which is scheduled for debut on June 17, will feature the affectionate moment between two female characters who are in a relationship, Variety reports.

Pixar’s LGBTQ employees reportedly sent a letter to Disney CEO Bob Chapek condemning his original decision to cut the scene, along with other “overtly gay affection” from previous Pixar films.

“Nearly every moment of overtly gay affection is cut at Disney’s behest, regardless of when there is protest from both the creative teams and executive leadership at Pixar,” the letter reads. “Even if creating LGBTQIA+ content was the answer to fixing the discriminatory legislation in the world, we are being barred from creating it.”

An unnamed source told Variety that the film – which stars Chris Evans as the inspiration for the Toy Story character Buzz Lightyear – features a character named Hawthorne, voiced by actress Uzo Aduba, who is in a relationship with another woman.

Some of the angry employees even lashed out at Chapek for not immediately denouncing recent legislation approved by Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) that regulates sex education in public elementary schools. 

The Parental Rights in Education bill says schools can’t teach curriculum on sexual orientation and gender identity to very young children from kindergarten to third grade. Leftist groups and biased media outlets have mischaracterized the measure, calling it the “Don’t Say Gay” bill.

In a recent memo to staff, Chapek reassured his employees that Disney stands behind members of the gay community.

“I want to be crystal clear: I and the entire leadership team unequivocally stand in support of our LGBTQ+ employees, their families, and their communities,” the memo says. “And, we are committed to creating a more inclusive company — and world.”

The Disney CEO also pointed out the company will donate $5 million to groups that promote LGBTQ ideology.

“You needed me to be a stronger ally in the fight for equal rights and I let you down. I am sorry,” Chapek said in a follow-up message to his staff.

LGBTQ workers at Disney issued a response last week in the form of an open letter: “While we certainly appreciate Bob Chapek’s apology note, there is still more work to be done.”

In the letter, they announced a series of protests leading up to a full walkout on March 22 along with a list of steps for Disney to initiate in order to “regain trust of the LGBTQIA+ community and employees.”

    I guess that I can no longer take my kids or grandchildren to anything done by Pixar or Disney. I believe that Buzz lightyear was created for small children, say under 10 yrs of age. I have enjoyed taking my grandchildren to Movies of Buzz. I believe that exposing children of that young an age to any sexual orientation education is child abuse. Parents and Grandparents should stop doing business with Disney until this has all changed. As a side thought I have known thousands of alternate sexual individuals and have had no problem with them. But highly impressionable children should not be taught anything about this.

    To Disney and the LGBT people! Teach your own children and adult stuff and let kids especially little children be kids and learn about sex as they get older! Me and my kids and anybody that I know won’t be watching this new show! You have your rights and they don’t give you the right to push your beliefs off on anybody else! Maybe teenagers have the right to learn still if parents agree! But let little children just be kids without adult issues! More parents need to homeschool their kids and turn off the TV and internet and keep them away from all devices and learn about nature more again! Stop pushing your beliefs off on everybody else especially children! Let little children be little children! Most LGBT people were abused and you know it! Stop pushing your ways and your choices off on children! You are sick! Sex and sexual actions are adult issues and teenage issues! Not until then! Shove your new children’s movie up your LGBT butt’s!

    I have been greatly troubled by the inclusion of ANY sexual, political content in children’s movies. STOP expressing ownership over the hearts & minds of our young children. Teach your own children what you want, leave ours alone. They are NOT yours!

    I will not be taking any of my 14 precious grands to this movie & it’s a crying shame. Can’t you give your sexual political agenda a rest even for the course of a child’s short movie?!!

    Aaaaaaa😩!!!~ Granny L’
