Disney Princess Makeover Sparks Outrage: Merida Petition Goes Viral..
Merida finally gets to join the royal lineup! That is after a complete “corporate makeover.” Changes include rendering the Princess – skinnier, sexier, and more glamorous than ever! Or at least more so then her paltry predecessor.
I honestly think that the Princess looked FINE the way she was originally intended…
“Merida was the princess that countless girls and their parents were waiting for—a strong, confident, self-rescuing princess ready to set off on her next adventure with her bow at the ready,” reads a Change.org petition, “Keep Merida Brave,” asking Disney to reconsider the character’s redesign. The petition, created Saturday by “A Mighty Girl,” a blog and online girl empowerment marketplace, had already surpassed 50,000 signatures by Friday afternoon. YAHOO!SHINE
