Hit from 1946 now criticised for portrayal of African-Americans in post-slavery period
When Disney’s streaming site launches in the US in November this year, fans will be able to watch the Star Wars spin-off series The Mandalorian and classic films. However, there will be a notable absence from Disney Plus: the 1946 film Song of the South, which has long been a controversial title for Disney because of how it depicts the lives of African-American plantation workers in the southern states after the civil war.
The company has also decided to cut a scene from Dumbo that is considered racist.
