Conservative Christians are not the only ones upset with The Walt Disney Company after it emerged that its upcoming adaption of the “Beauty and the Beast” will feature a gay scene. An openly gay attorney has also voiced his outrage with Disney, arguing that it’s not right for the company to push such a “mature theme” on children.
Disney came under fire recently when it emerged that the live-action remake of the animated 1991 classic will feature an “exclusively gay moment” on screen, which will feature the character LeFou, a sidekick to the movie’s antagonist, Gaston.
The exclusively gay moment reportedly will be a first for the children’s entertainment giant and some Christian leaders, such as evangelist Franklin Graham, are calling on parents to boycott the movie because of it.
However, it is not just conservative Christians who have voiced their displeasure with the reported gay moment in the movie, which is scheduled to hit theatres on Thursday.
