A mom is getting some heat for naming her baby after a “canceled” ride at Disney World.
Kara, known as @vegangranolamom on TikTok, posted how sad she is that the ride she named her daughter after has closed.
The ride? Splash Mountain. Which leads to many questions.
- Is the baby’s name Splash?
- Zippidy Doo Dah?
Before we get to what the baby’s name is, let’s tackle , here’s the deal. The Splash Mountain attraction at Disney World and Disneyland is based on the movie Song of the South which has been widely criticized as racist. According to insidethemagic:
While the ride seems innocuous, it’s based on an objectively racist film, Song of the South (1946). The movie is so problematic that while The Walt Disney Company streams films containing offensive content on Disney Plus with a cultural sensitivity warning, such as Peter Pan (1953)and Dumbo (1941), it refuses to offer legal means to view Song of the South.
