Gab users are outraged by Rachel Zegler’s portrayal of Snow White Leaves.
Rachel Zegler’s casting in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs has enraged some social media users.
Gab users, a “free speech” social media network popular with neo-Nazis and others barred from other platforms, expressed outrage that a “Black” actress was cast in the role of exiled princess Snow White.
Shortly after it was announced that Zegler—who stars in Steven Spielberg’s upcoming remake of West Side Story—@Teamsaveamerica shared the message: “Disney just made SNOW WHITE a black girl.
“For the past two years, I’ve been telling jokes about “what’s next?” Is Snow White going to be turned black?’ Our country has become more than a farce thanks to the Democrats… It’s a complete shambles.”
@McKay86 responded to the claim by writing: “I have no objections to Black Disney princesses, but this must end! This anti-White nonsense is starting to grate on my nerves. I’m sick of individuals altering history and stories that originated with European and American White ancestors.
“I am not a White supremacist or purist, but it is [disgusting]and demeaning to act as if Whites are so bad that their legacy, works of art and literature, and so on… need to be rewritten and reimagined to meet some odd ‘diversity fetish.’ “I’m tired of this nonsense.”
In the meantime, @Momof3Girls issued a rallying cry, writing: “Disney should be boycotted. Their butter and bread are provided by traditional families. Yet they sprue all this liberal garbage. Lgbqt week and praise during June.
“Placing black actors in roles were white woman should be playing. This is not about franchising minorities. It is about disenfranchisement of whites.”
After a fellow Gab user stated that Zegler is, in fact, of Colombian and Polish heritage, @Momof3girls said: “I will admit I took this post at face value. This actress does not look white to me.
“She has some other race besides Caucasian in her. Snow white is fair as in complexion and beauty. This is a German fairytale which means they were not talking about any other race than white.
“In fact, the story states Snow White is as white as snow which means she was a very light skinned white. I am super offended since my family is very light skinned and have been made fun of. This is a brief summary.
