Outraged Customers Are Cancelling Their Disney+ Subscriptions After Watching One Scene

Disney+ is under fire as outraged subscribers react to a controversial scene in the 1994 film “Blank Check.” In the movie, an adult woman, FBI agent Shay Stanley (Karen Duffy), shares a romantic kiss with an eleven-year-old boy, Preston Waters (Brian Bonsall), sparking outrage among viewers who deem it “the most awkward scene ever.”

This incident has amplified discussions about societal norms, especially in the wake of the #MeToo movement, which exposes issues of sexual abuse and power dynamics. Many question Disney’s decision to include such a scene in a family-friendly film.

TikTok user Rob Anderson’s video drew attention to the matter, expressing shock at Disney’s inclusion of the romantic kiss and the suggestion of a future “date” between the adult character and the underage boy.

Some Disney+ subscribers have canceled their subscriptions in response to the controversy. This incident underscores the importance of responsible content creation, particularly for content accessible to children, amid today’s heightened sensitivity to such issues.
