Disney’s disturbing tweet had everyone very worried

We all have that one friend who is often very optimistic whatever the situation may be. While you are complaining or feeling annoyed, this friend knows how to cheer you up. That’s why whenever you need a little encouragement, he or she is your go-to friend.

To many of us, Disney is similar to that friend. With its wholesome, light, and funny personality reflected in all its shows, we only need to watch our fave Disney shows and we’ll feel better somehow. Even though some of its films showed Disney’s edgier and darker side, its content remains to be wholesome and family-oriented.

That’s why, the Twitterverse was shookt when Disney sounded mopey in its recent post that went viral. Unfortunately the post has been removed already, but someone managed to take a screenshot of it.

The post contains a GIF of Pinocchio’s lifeless body with the text: “When someone compliments you, but you’re dead inside.” Disney added a caption which reads: “Makes no difference who you are.”

Because the tweet was uncalled for, a lot of people expressed their bewilderment about the whole thing:

While many showed their concern and offered encouragement:





There were also those who disagreed that the post was very “un-Disney” because they think that “Disney has always had a dark side.”



Although we do not know yet why Disney tweeted that or why the post was deleted, one thing we can be sure of, even our jolly good friend, Disney, feels empty sometimes.

It’s okay not to be okay, Disney.

Disney. Twitter, Pinocchio,
