While Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs is in the spotlight, following accusations of sexism, the French cartoonist Coco received a lot of criticism, following the publication of one of his drawings in Release.
A drawing that goes wrong
Despite the fact that he instituted the codes of animated cinema for decades to come, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, released in 1937, is the subject of strong criticism. We recently told you about the criticisms expressed by American journalists against the very first animated feature film in history, considering that the kissing scene was representative of “major problem“that Disney had, in its early films at least, with the consent.
Obviously, these criticisms did not go unnoticed. While some activists, feminists among others, side with the observation of the two journalists, others consider that it is a question of cancel culture. An explosive debate to say the least, especially when you consider that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs isn’t the first big-eared studio work to be singled out. But the controversy has just mounted a notch, after the publication by the newspaper Release of a caricature by the press cartoonist Coco.
We see Prince Charming from the film asking permission from Snow White to kiss him; the latter answers him that he is a “stuck up“. A drawing that did not fail to react on social networks, some Internet users going so far as to consider that Coco and Release would apologize for rape.
The culture of rape:May 6, 2021
-a woman who sleeps with several people would necessarily consent
-a man asking for consent would be stuck
How funny it is to make fun of good people and justify assholes! This scene is not the + problematic and canceling the film does not seem necessary to me, but it is necessary to recognize and explain to the children that the Disney films are the reflection of a bygone era. https://t.co/Oh3PppzzeeMay 6, 2021
Clearly to vomit ud83e udd2e https://t.co/5HTCdP5yM6May 6, 2021
Ah yeah, it’s true that respecting someone’s consent is getting stuck ud83e udd21 ud83e udd21 ud83e udd21 https://t.co/lJf8CESU2kMay 6, 2021
imagine you’re a woman and you manage to draw such problematic stuff ud83d udc4d https://t.co/fd7Wg5HEpAMay 6, 2021
But think about two minutes before doing such things, it’s not going well, nobody said to themselves that there was a problem https://t.co/KKQ5Cx7VMNMay 6, 2021
Nothing that goes in this drawing: it’s not because you sleep right to left that you agree to everything, but hey, you are too stupid to have it engraved in your head. And then a guy who asks for consent is not stuck, just respectful. https://t.co/YGgbMXuEC9May 6, 2021
ud83d ude21 does consent mean anything to you? Or perhaps decency? https://t.co/XazNF884hIMay 6, 2021
Working for several years at Charlie Hebdo, Coco is obviously used to controversy, and did not fail to react, by posting another drawing on her Twitter page, which will not fail to react as well.
Arrival at Release Since April 2021, the cartoonist has replaced the famous cartoonist Willem. Note also that Coco is not the first cartoonist to be controversial at the start of 2021. We spoke to you a few weeks ago about Xavier Gorce, who resigned from the daily The world, after a drawing on incest which caused controversy.
