The Walt Disney Company has officially added social justice content advisories to a number of films and television programs available on its video streaming service, Disney Plus.
Introduced in the interest of fostering “diversity and inclusion,” the warnings appear for exactly 10 seconds in the form of simple white text on a black background card presented before select pieces of content.
“This program includes negative depictions and/or mistreatment of people or cultures,” the labels read. “These stereotypes were wrong then and are wrong now.”
“Rather than remove this content, we want to acknowledge its harmful impact, learn from it and spark conversation to create a more inclusive future together.
“Disney is committed to creating stories with inspirational and aspirational themes that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience around the globe.”
