Disney+ adds disclaimer to ‘Dumbo’ and ‘Peter Pan’ for depicting racist stereotypes

Disney’s (DIS)  new streaming service has added a disclaimer to “Dumbo,” “Peter Pan” and other classics because they depict racist stereotypes, underscoring a challenge media companies face when they resurrect older movies in modern times. The move comes as Disney Plus seems to be an instant hit. Companies have been grappling for years with how to address stereotypes that were in TV shows and movies decades ago but look jarring today.
