  • Tigger and all the Disney characters need your help!

    Okay, guys... here's the deal...

    FOX News last week did a report on how a Tigger character over at Walt Disney World in Florida "punched" a teenage kid. In the footage they showed, the kid was obviously doing something to Tigger behind his back (out of view of the camera), and Tigger was defending himself. They showed the kid saying "I don't know what I did to provoke him..." Riiiiiiiight. But that's not what I'm posting about. After the segment, the female newscaster said, "That's right kids, go ahead and beat up the characters at Disneyland!"

    Now, they have an obligation to report the news and what's happening, but they are NOT supposed to be giving their own personal commentary and giving all of Southern California and wherever else they broadcast carte blanche to come into my place of work and beat up the people I love and care about! I don't think there's a better example of irresponsible broadcasting out there, and I think FOX ought to know what a mistake they made. They are so quick to jump on what Disney does wrong, but they almost never report on the wonderful things we're doing, like the Flashback show I'm in and all the money it's raising for charity. But that's beside the point...

    I'm asking all of you to please, call FOX or write to them at their email and tell them how wrong it was for that female newscaster to say what she did. I myself am boycotting their network, I know that it's home to The Simpsons so you all can't do that but please write or call them. Light up their board and let them know we won't stand for that kind of irresponsibility!

    The number for FOX News is 310-584-2000 or go to www.myfoxla.com. Don't forget to call or write in to them, please!!

    Apparently the cast member playing Tigger in that incident said the kid grabbed the back of the Tigger head and pulled it so it hit the CM in the face and he couldn't breathe.... so he smacked the kid to get him to stop.

      I doubt anyone will take that newscaster seriously. But still, people do go after the mascots on occassion and that's why they are always escorted around the parks by security.

        Ok RoseRedAngel, I did my part and emailed Fox at the link you provided. I don't care much for Fox News anyway, but this just sinched it. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. I'm sure MiceChat will get behind this and flood Fox with comments.

          Do you have the name of the reporter so we know who to complain about on their site?

                In the footage that I got to see, it didn't show her name at the bottom. You can see what happened in the incident here, although I am still looking for footage of what the female broadcaster said, and I WILL keep looking for it, I want everyone to see it:

                And someone also did some additional investigating of the home video, which I think is pretty enlightening:

                  But really....we're talking about what? THREE kids who were watching Fox news?

                  Anyone out there have kids who watch fox news? (I COULD be wrong here...)

                  Regardless, it was a goofy thing to say.

                  :botox:

                    I'd love to help the cause...if I knew which reporter or anchor said that. I'm a HUGE fan of Good Day LA and The Fox 11 Morning News
