‘Snow White’ Stars’ Comments Cause Controversy

When the casting for Zegler was announced, many fans were thrilled. Zegler has an undeniably stunning vocal talent, and her singsong voice will lend itself perfectly to the musical score. However, her comments as of late have caused Snow White fans to turn against her.

It all started when Zegler was under fire for her comments at a SAG-AFTRA strike. When asked about her stance on the strike, Zegler says;

“If I’m going to stand there 18 hours in a dress of an iconic Disney princess, I deserve to be paid for every hour that it is streamed online.”

Some people were put off by this comment, especially since Zegler is getting paid a lot of money to play the titular role. Many actresses dream of playing such a role and hearing Zegler complain about it was shocking to many.

Zegler Criticized Film and Ride

Things went from bad to worse when a video went viral showing Zegler expressing her dislike of the original Snow White film. She also mentions that she thought the Snow White ride at Disney was scary.

The overwhelming message being portrayed is that this is “not your mothers Snow White.” Clearly, this film is not about falling in love, and fans are not understanding why exactly a love story is a bad thing. One fan mocks the interview on Twitter:

Some fans are so upset that they are calling for a recast and reshoot of the Snow White remake. At this time, no comment has been made by the Walt Disney Company over the discourse.
