Why the fuk are people calling Frozen out for being racist? It’s based on a nordic (Danish) story (Snedronningen), that’s over 200 years old. The original story features no people “Of colour”
Whitewashing would be making Aladin or Lilo white.
Can someone please post that Tumblr post…

Come on people, is not “whitewashing” when the source material was whiter than snow

It reminds me of this “controversy” from Thor.
Where people were accused of being racist for pointing out that this does not make any fucking sense. I never read the comics before I saw the movie, so I didn’t even know there was a disparity. In mythological terms though, this is just silly.

It technically does make sense given that the Norse Gods in the Marvel Universe are actually Aliens. Also, because Idris Elba was just that awesome in that role.

yeah I never had any complaints about the movie. I thought he was quite fitting. Also I knew literally nothing about Thor, so I had no expectation either way.
Just the whole… “you’re racist if you don’t believe there were Africans in Norse legend” thing.

People are just now making up controversies as they go along, because people need to be white knights to some retarded shit.

Ancient Nords were obviously ironic when they called this guy “whitest of the Gods”.

Sure, its idiotic white people defending shit that doesn’t need defending. Tumblr is self explanatory though.
