You just keep talking about the little mermaid.
Did you even read the Snopes article and read why they said it was a "false" story? The cases were pulled because of complaints, Disney has always
denied it was a phallus and say it was just a tower.
You can fantasize about whatever you think it is, but Snopes is correct, Disney and the artist denied it was a phallus. The email snopes is talking
about has this whole detailed backstory about a disgruntled Disney employee that purposely drew a phallus...that is FALSE. Disney did change the
covers due to complaints.
This is simple common sense reading comprehension, what don't you get?
I brought up several cases regarding Disney. You focusing on one, and me responding, doesn't mean that's the only one I mentioned.
No one here is "fantasizing" but those denying the clear proof in the picture, that was also shared in the thread. Of COURSE Disney and the artist
denied it. There are thousands in prison that denied their crimes in the face of hard evidence, too, but hat doesn't mean they are innocent. Snopes
CHOSE what version of the story to address, so that they could claim it as false. The fact is, someone being paid by Disney deliberately drew a
phallus on the cover of a childrens' movie. Their denials and obfuscations don't change that fact. Disney did a lot more than just change the
cover. They offered to PAY people to send the other one back. They wanted to destroy all the evidence. Didn't work out well for them. Of course,
that would not be the first thing they tried covering up, but that's a whole other issue.
In that case, though, Snopes chose the angle, so that they could make people believe the entire story was false. That is why sensible people don't
trust them on any sensitive issue.
