13 Vicious Tweets Attacking Disney for Airing a Gay Kiss

Social media has a lot of opinions about this.

Published March 2, 2017

Disney made strides recently by airing its first gay kissing scene during Monday's episode of popular children's cartoon Star vs. the Forces of Evil.

As expected, the scene generated a lot of buzz online, with many expressing their outrage at the network's decision to promote this kind of diversity.

In this episode of the Disney XD show, the main character, Star, and her friend Marco attended a concert where they noticed they were surrounded by kissing couples. The screen slowly captured the moment with several heterosexual couples smooching, before panning over to two men and, later in the episode, two women.

Take a look at the scene, below:
